Londonderry Mall is adding eight stores this month with a made-in-Alberta focus as part of a campaign encouraging customers to shop Canadian.

Most of the small outlets, expected to open between Aug. 12 and Aug. 24, are owned by people from the Edmonton area, although one is based in Grande Prairie and another is from Calgary, mall marketing director Nancy Jarnevic said Tuesday.

“I think we have an opportunity to support some great Alberta-based retailers … Our main motivation was to fill that corridor between Simons and Hudson Bay with great fashion retailers and great style.”

The new facilities are Opulence men’s and women’s store, local designer Kelly Wollf (formerly known as C’est Sera), men’s wear outlets Moltisanti and Adesso Accessories, Continental Shoes and Step In Shoes, women’s clothing shop LemonDress, and Parkshop, which focuses on new Canadian designers.

“It’s part of the redevelopment and repositioning of the property we have been working on over the past three years, (to get) some unique offerings,” Jarnevic said, describing the total of 1,900 square metres the shops will occupy as a “retail incubator.”

This will be the first brick-and-mortar store for several of the companies, which have been selling products online and at pop-up locations, she said.

The mall expects to reach another major addition Aug. 24 with the opening of Edmonton’s second Simons department store.
