Canadian Tire moving into vacated Wal-Mart space in Regina
After two years, the mystery of who's going to move into the vacated Wal-Mart space at Regina's Southland Mall has been solved.
Four new businesses will soon be moving into the 135,000-square-foot premises, including Canadian Tire and Sport Chek.
The company that owns the mall, Retrocom REIT, has written a letter to current tenants, informing them of the move.
In addition to Canadian Tire and Sport Chek, Mark's and Atmosphere are coming to the shopping centre on Gordon Road.
All four new tenants are expected to be moved in by March 2013, according to the letter.
The move may mean some changes to the retail scene in south Regina — there's already a Sport Chek next to the mall, and a Canadian Tire nearby on Albert Street South.
After the Wal-Mart vacated the premises in 2010, Zellers stepped forward and said it would move into the space. However, Target bought up a number of Zellers leases and the move never happened.
