Canadian Tire reveals exciting plan

New store for Wembley Mall,
slated to open in Spring 2014, will include auto, garden centres

Canadian Tire confirms it wants to open a store in Parksville’s Wembley Mall, a company spokesperson said this week.

Canadian Tire has been looking to open a store in District 69 since at least 2007.

The company has now submitted a development permit application to build a store in the space currently occupied by Save-On-Foods, which is in the process of building a stand-alone building next door in the former Ken-Dor Garden Centre location and already has its building permits in place.

“The proposed Canadian Tire store will total approximately 37,000 square feet, including 24,000 square feet of retail space, a robust automotive service centre with five service bays and a spacious outdoor garden centre,” Canadian Tire communications advisor Jeannette Holder said through an e-mail.

The Canadian Tire would be slightly larger than the existing food store, with the addition of the garden centre.


“Subject to all necessary approvals, the proposed Canadian Tire store is scheduled to open in spring 2014,” said Holder.
