Changes are in the wind for Centenoka Park Mall, but none are being confirmed yet.
Regarding the spot vacated recently by Safeway Canada, rumours have been circulating about who will move in.
One rumour suggests London Drugs is taking over the location. However, Wendy Hartley with London Drugs’ public relations team said Friday that it’s an unfounded rumour. She said she checked with the company’s real estate division and “there’s no plan at this point for Salmon Arm.”
Another rumour points to Salmon Arm’s Brick store moving to the former Safeway location.
Kathleen Honey, one of the owners of The Brick, said she has had dozens of people ask her if that’s true – and it’s not. However, changes are coming for The Brick.
“We are hoping to have an announcement this week; we’re very, very close to making an announcement,” she said Monday.
Another change involves Nutter’s. Owner Russ Skinner confirms Nutter’s is moving and expanding within the mall, but no date or location is being announced yet.
The City of Salmon Arm’s planning department states it currently has no building permit records or official word of any new tenants in the mall.
Lance Johnson, manager of Centenoka Park Mall, couldn’t be reached for comment.
