GATINEAU, QC, Aug. 13, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Les Promenades Gatineau, a shopping centre owned by Oxford Properties Group and Montez Corporation, is proud to reveal its new look today and celebrate the official opening of a new 80,000-plus square foot Simons store.
After more than 20 intense months of work and a $110 million upgrade by its owners, Les Promenades Gatineau is ready to position itself as THE fashion destination in West Quebec.
Some of the changes include a major renovation of the common areas, an easy to find customer service counter, completely updated landscaping and a 750-plus seat food court. The fully eco-friendly food court will considerably reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill each year while offering an enhanced dining experience with cutlery and ceramic dishware.
In order to offer its clientele a first class shopping experience, the centre welcomes new sit-down dining players such as The Beauty & the Beeeef and L'Académie, both of which are expected to open this fall, and 3 Amigos, open since June. Allo mon Coco will also complement the sit down offering in 2016.
In addition to its major retailers like Costco, Urban Planet and The Bay, Les Promenades Gatineau is now home to well-known fashion names like H&M, Forever 21 and - as of today - Simons, all to better meet the needs of today's clientele.
The centre expects to remain very competitive in terms of store offerings in the years to come. The arrival of Simons as a key player clearly shows that it wishes to offer customers a unique shopping experience in a highly attractive setting.
