National retailers Sport Chek and Bulk Barn will soon be new tenants at Prosperity Ridge Shopping Centre in Williams Lake, Platform Properties Ltd. of Vancouver announced this week.
“We are pleased to announce that construction at Prosperity Ridge has commenced for these two outstanding retailers,” said Kyle Shury, principal of Platform. “We are looking forward to them opening for business later this fall and joining our existing complement of tenants.”
Shury said it was exciting news because both businesses are new to Williams Lake.
“There aren’t too many Bulk Barns in B.C. The first one opened in West Bank Kelowna,” he said Thursday.
Mayor Kerry Cook described the announcement as great news.
“New, growing developments such as Prosperity Ridge further cement Williams Lake’s position as a regional shopping destination,” Cook said.
In conjunction with the adjacent Wal-Mart Supercentre, both retailers will be joining existing tenants at the centre, including Dollarama, Bosley’s, Warehouse One and Subway, amongst others.
Upon completion, Prosperity Ridge Shopping Centre will offer more than 100,000 square feet of destination retail space to service the community, and as a retail draw for the broader region, Shury added.
Platform is presently in talks with another large retailer to join the centre and hopes to be in a position to make an announcement later this summer.
