Coming up on the second anniversary of the shuttering of Target Canada’s stores, many of the big boxes have been scooped up by other retailers such as Lowe’s and Walmart, who have cherry-picked the best of the best locations to drive their own growth where Target failed to do so.
One of the latest stores to come on-line is the new Walmart at Erin Mills Town Centre, located in the busy west end of Mississauga.
Like the nearby Square One store, this is a two level mall location which presents its own opportunities and challenges. We sent one of our top Field Agents to this story to give us (and you) a guided tour to see how Walmart has adapted the former Target space.
This store is more spacious than most Walmart Supercentres with a huge grocery section highlighting Walmart’s continues push into food. Action alley is also wider and less cluttered and store entrances have wide open spaces replacing the normal narrow gauntlet of promotional pallet displays and seasonal merchandise.
Fashion, Home, Housewares and Entertainment are located on the upper floor while Food, HABA with Pharmacy, and Stationary are located on the low level.
We hope you enjoy this Virtual Store Tour!
