Dennis Eberhard, vice-president of development for First Pro Shopping Centres, said the new Wal-Mart will be complete by June.Wendys
, Boston Pizza, Quizno's Subs, Magicuts and EB Games are also slotted into the big box retail centre that will total 520,000 square feet. Mr. Eberhard
added that negotiations continue with both national chain stores and smaller local entrepreneurs to fill other vacancies.
"Those talks are going well, very well," he
said, refusing to divulge the names of potential tenants.He
said announcements about new tenants will be made soon.
"We're about to submit a site plan proposal with the City," he
continued."I hope to get it approved in the next four to six months, but that may be ambitious," he
laughed."This is part of the job.They're the authority and you have to work with them because they make the decision."
And part of that problem, said Mr. Eberhard
, is personal taste.
