    I believe TD removed all change machines everywhere.
    The Newcastle TD still had a change machine last time I was in there. About a month ago.

    Thank you Sonicboom. A new store is always exciting news! I have been to the one in WEM and it is a really cute store. I bought nothing but I think it does well.
    I find it to be such a weird concept for a store, with pretty much everything being the same price. Some things make sense, but when you have 3 sizes of the same object, and they're all priced the same, that's when it gets weird for me.
    They're going to park their car over there. You're going to park your car over here. Get it?

    i strolled through on friday, there are lots of empty bays. To the point where they have a "sponsored sitting area" where the food court used to be.

    I think renovating the entire mall during an economic downturn is gonna make it look pretty silly for a good long while. They say the city is expanding northwards, but these are pretty old areas right now... I think it'll finally have a strong customer-base by the time the mall will need to be renovated again .

    Pretty standard post boom situation. The economic boom causes an expansion and new retail development and the recession puts marginal players in jeopardy. Cutting costs and lease rates doesn’t help a lot if shoppers are still going to be going to the newer retail locations. Renovating may be the only option available.

    The successes and failures of various malls actions in the 1980s like at Westmount mall, Heritage, Kingsway, Capilano and Meadowlark may provide some insight.

    Probably the same issue with office towers. We’re seeing a large expansion as the economy wallows. Businesses leave the old towers for the new and the old tower owners now have to figure who they can now attract into the old tower and must decide what it will take to do so.

    Moreover delaying renos and risking a further decline in business may mean that any window of opportunity to adequately and cheaply finance the renos may close.

    Very true. As the last of the major malls to undergo a major reno they really risked falling into a downward spiral they could not recover from. Attracting a major tenant like Simons was a big step in assuring that wouldn't happen.

    Yeah, it's a good sign, and might make the mall more approachable and liked by people. Though I can imagine many people going there now will be like me, and go "Wow- this is the nicest-looking nearly-empty mall I've ever seen!" .

    They did do a good job by attracting Simons, however, I would bet that Simons is a bit disappointed. The announcement of Simons was made before Kingsway lost Target. Now there is Sears space opened at Kingsway and Southgate. I would imagine that Simons assumed that Londonderry would be a full mall with new stores around it that draw people down to that end. One would think that an H&M or Forever 21 would want to be in that wing or maybe Lululemon. Then prime retail space in the middle of the mall is going to be the new library. Please don't get me wrong, a library is wonderful and the new Edmonton Public Libraries are visually beautiful but wouldn't the mall prefer to be earning more revenue by opening an Old Navy? I would assume that no one wants to lease those big new spaces that opened up by the old food court and below at the pet store and sitting area. They don't seem to be attracting any big new retailers. They are also missing any plus sized ladies wear, EB Games (since Game City left, my sons won't go to Londonderry), the Gap, Eddie Bauer, Lululemon, Disney, American Eagle and many of the standard stores that are at all the other malls around the city.
