  • Share

Ward 1 official website 


Market Mall in Varsity is undergoing renovations in order to make room for several new retail clients. CF Market Mall is one of Canada’s most productive shopping centres, according to a recent Retail Council of Canada shopping centre study.  The mall is nearing sales of $1,000 per square foot annually, making it the region’s second-most productive mall after CF Chinook Centre.

Mall officials confirmed that both Zara and Sporting Life will be opening this year, with plans for Saks Off 5th to open in 2018.  Zara will open one of its largest Canadian stores all this fall, with 30,000 square feet over two levels and Sporting Life will be opening a 40,000 square foot store.  Saks Off 5th will be 26,600 square feet, and will be located where HomeSense currently sits. HomeSense will move into the part of the mall’s upper level which formerly housed American retailer Target.

The existing Sport Chek location will expand to become a 60,000 square foot flagship store on two-levels. The expansion is expected to be completed in August 2018.

In addition to the new stores, Market Mall is also adding 83 additional underground parking spaces.
