Dawson Mall 'Target-ed' for change


The CBC is reporting that Target – a discount retailer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota – will open between 125 to 135 stores in Canada, including in Dawson Creek, starting in 2013 after acquiring 189 leases from the Hudson’s Bay Company, which owns Zellers.

The report suggests Zellers will continue to operate at their present location for some time until remodelling work gets underway, which is estimated to cost about $10 million and take six to nine months to complete. In fact, Zellers is currently posting job openings at its Dawson Creek store.

The CBC also reports that Target reached a deal with Sobeys to supply food at Target stores when they begin opening in 2013.

The Dawson Mall has already seen some significant changes over the last year or so – a few new stores opening like the Dollarama and Suzanne’s & Jenny’s, expansion of the Shoppers Drug Mart and Mark’s Work Wearhouse, and most recently, repaving of the mall parking lot.
