(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Shortly after the closing of West49, another store has announced they are opening up on the Intercity Shopping Centre.
The old Homesense location is going to be home to the “Urban Planet”, which is supposed to have most of the products which West49 sells. The store is set to open in early April.
Intercity Shopping Centre has been victim to losing retail stores, most likely from online retailers offering better prices.
There is a wall up around the location, advertising the incoming store.
This move breathes a bit of life back into the mall for the time being, but the question on everyone’s mind is, is it enough?
Time will well.
