A change of course for Chaussures Panda

GATINEAU, QC, Feb. 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of the $110 million rejuvenation of Les Promenades Gatineau shopping centre, several retailers have already undertaken changes that will bestow a modern and renewed look to their store.

Among these changes, Chaussures Panda, a shoe store for babies and children, has resettled in larger and brighter premises.

''Our new store will allow us to display fashion collections in a more luminous and up-to-date environment,'' said Serge Marchand, for Chaussures Panda. ''The additional space for Chaussures Panda allows us to show a wider selection of the best brands on the market, still at affordable prices. This is all part of the renewal of Les Promenades Gatineau shopping centre so it can become the destination of choice in Gatineau.''

The relocation of Chaussures Panda is among the numerous embellishments that will be made to the most important shopping centre in the Outaouais in the next months.

''This substantial work is progressing according to plan,'' said Serge Rossignol, General Manager, Les Promenades Gatineau. ''Costumers will enjoy a whole new shopping centre that will compare very favourably with its Ottawa competitors. With the arrival of such stores as Simons, H&M and Forever 21, Les Promenades Gatineau will achieve a higher level of quality and an unequalled supply.''
