For today’s post I wanted to share a few quick tidbits of information I have read recently in regards to the Halifax retail scene. So here we go:
-Mic Mac mall seems to be targeting the younger adult market with stores such as Justice, Bench, Stance and the infamous Forever 21, all set to call the the mall home in the near future.
–Samuel & Co. in the Mic Mac mall is closing after many years of patronage. This is only the second Store in the Samuel & Co. division to close after almost 20 years in business. The new store that will be taking it’s place is also targeted towards young adults. Journey the urban street style footwear store.
-Saturday unveiled a soft opening for the new Mills store in the Shops at Spring Garden. the 9000 sq. ft. store has two levels consisting of beauty, accessories and handbags on the first level and fashion on the second. Mills also introduced a new shoe department consisting of brands such as Sam Edelman, House of Harlow and L.K. Bennett.
-Property owner Mickey Macdonald is planning on developing the old Mills location but is just looking for the right fit for the vacancy. He says he is trying to find a retailer that mixes well with the Lululemon store that is next door. Names such as H&M, Forever 21 and even Aritzia are being tossed around.
