According to a spokesperson for Garden City Shopping Centre:
“The former Sears location will be reformatted to accommodate a second large format tenant in addition to Seafood City, and the remaining space will become home to smaller stores”.
“A new entrance fronting onto McPhillips Street will also be created as part of the renovation.”
Global News Winnipeg also reported the opening of Seafood City Supermarket Winnipeg,
“About 57,000 people of Filipino descent live in Winnipeg, making it the largest Filipino population by percentage in Canada. The addition of the supermarket comes on the heels on the opening of two Jollibee locations in the city, a Philippines-based fast-food chain.”
