Bijouterie Lavigueur is rejuvenated

GATINEAU, QC, Feb. 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The $110 million renovations made to Les Promenades Gatineau shopping centre are underway. This significant work aims at offering customers a renewed fashion destination with new retailers and a revamped and expanded food court.

As part of this rejuvenation, Bijouterie Lavigueur has inherited a new location and has undergone renovations that bring a modern and distinguished feel to the store.

''I have always believed in the potential of Les Promenades Gatineau. A spark to launch the shopping centre was missing. This spark came from Oxford, who sensed the potential that will make a remarkable success of this centre,'' said Jean-Louis Lavigueur, President, Bijouterie Lavigueur Ltée. The relocation combined to the renovation of the branch are great achievements, and the best is yet to come.''

The relocation and reorganization of Bijouterie Lavigueur are some of the several improvements to Les Promenades Gatineau that will take place in the next months.

''We have listened to our customers' requests,'' said Serge Rossignol, General Manager of Les Promenades Gatineau. ''Women want a wider selection and to shop for clothes this side of the river. The arrival of Simons, H&M and Forever 21, amongst others, will allow meeting these needs. This $110 million investment in the modernization of Les Promenades Gatineau shopping centre will attract a larger clientele et boost the economy of the region.''
