Les Promenades Gatineau announces the arrival of Simons flagship store

Published 16 December 2013

Les Promenades Gatineau announces the arrival of an 80,000-square-foot flagship Simons store in the fall of 2015, the first location of the Quebec fashion specialty retailer to open in the Greater Ottawa Area.

The single level Simons store will anchor the centre of the mall with frontage on Maloney Boulevard, as part of an unprecedented $110 million modernization and redevelopment project. Extensive renovations will completely revitalize common areas, refresh the exterior landscaping, and introduce a new food court. The project will be executed in phases, with substantial completion expected in the Spring of 2016 .

Les Promenades Gatineau is proud and excited to welcome one of Canada's most influential fashion retailers, La Maison Simons. Lovers of fashion and home decor in the Greater Ottawa area will now be able to shop for the latest trends as early as fall of 2015. In signature Simons style, this first store in the region will feature a modern, world-class design, shopper-friendly environment, and unparalleled personalized customer service.

The new food court is anticipated to open by the end of 2014. It will provide customers with a superior culinary experience, featuring a new scullery service with signature dishware and cutlery. With increased seating capacity and 13 unique new eateries, Les Promenades Gatineau's new food court aims to delight its customers as a premium culinary destination.

"Our mission is to constantly raise the bar in the delivery of a first-class customer experience," stated Lucie Filiatrault, Les Promenades Gatineau's Marketing Director. "Our customers have asked us for more services and an even better shopping destination -- and our redevelopment will deliver this experience. Our customers will be delighted with all that Les Promenades Gatineau has to offer."

The redevelopment will effectively position Les Promenades Gatineau as the top fashion destination for shoppers and retailers in this region. "With the arrival of new stores and services, Les Promenades Gatineau will continue to lead the market in catering to a discerning clientele," explained Serge Rossignol, Les Promenades Gatineau's General Manager. "This unprecedented investment is one of the many ways Les Promenades Gatineau is contributing to further develop the region and enrich the daily life of our community."

In November 2013, Les Promenades Gatineau celebrated 35 years of shopping excellence. This major investment in Les Promenades Gatineau shows Oxford Properties' commitment to providing an exceptional, diversified, and elevated shopping experience that is second to none.
