Halifax Shopping Centre rumours:


  • Dollarama is moving across the street to the Penningtons space
  • H&M has announced its 2014 stores but HSC is not on the list, what I hear now is that the mall still plans to renovate the old bowling alley space and turn that into a new food court.
  • The food court is still in play (originally rumoured to be H&M) and all that is being said is that space is being redeveloped for a retailer that is currently not in our market.
