A little more than two weeks ago, an article on a local news site read: “There are rumours the store will close down in 2018.”
And, more recently, another article on the same site said: “In the meantime, the store’s stock is being sold off to make way for the expansion of the mall, which will open in 2020.”
At first glance, the news from one store may seem like a good thing for the rest of us.
But the reality is that while the stores might be closing, it will not mean the end of retail in our community.
There are a number of factors at play.
First, the mall’s opening is still very much a work in progress, with the mall opening just four months after the mall was originally designed and built.
Second, the Mall of Toronto will be a completely new mall.
It will not have the same footprint as the Mall, which is built to accommodate a much larger area of shopping.
Third, and most importantly, many of the stores will still be there, operating as they have for decades.
Fourth, the new mall will have much larger stores.
It also has an array of restaurants and bars.
Fifth, the malls new design will create more space for shoppers.
It is true that a lot of the new stores will be smaller.
But there are a few of them that are really going to be major anchors in the revitalization of our community and, in some cases, in the life of our local businesses.
There will be some big names, such as the Fresh Market at Yonge and Yonge, which could serve as the anchor for the revitalized mall.
There is also the planned renovation of the Yonge Street Mall, with a new anchor store being planned for the former Citi Centre mall.
And there is the planned addition of a new shopping mall at the site of the old CityPlace.
But there are many other retailers that will not be going anywhere.
There will be other businesses that will be open, such a Pinnacle Food Mart, a Canadian Tire, a Costco and a handful of other stores.
And there will be many more retail anchors that will open and stay open.
The biggest retailers that are not going anywhere are some of the major chains.
They include Sears, Kmart, Kohl’s and Target.
They will all have locations in the area.
But they will be competing with smaller, regional chains such as Home Depot, Lowe’s and the like.
And they will also be competing against some of our own local brands.
The list goes on.
Many of the big retailers are not just going to leave the area and be replaced by new brands.
Some of them, such the Kohl�s and Target, will be bringing some of their business model with them.
They are also bringing their retail brand to the area, particularly through their online presence, which they are now doing well.
These retailers are going to make a big difference.
They will be the catalyst for change, and the anchor stores in the mall will be very much an extension of the local business community.
The malls current mall is a very good example of a very large and successful retailer.
But as long as the mall continues to operate as it has, many stores are going be shuttered and there will not really be much in the way of local retailers.
But if we are to truly make our neighbourhood a vibrant place for people to shop, then we have to open up more space.
If we do that, the community will be able to benefit, as we will be allowing more of our residents to have access to better shopping and better food options.
