Cornwall Ontario – Cornwall Square has announced that Dollarama will shortly become part of the tenant mix at the iconic downtown shopping centre.

The popular discount retailer will occupy approximately 15,000 square feet of previously vacant space. Renovations are set to beging soon with a story opening planned sometime in the coming months.

“Management believes that the opening of Dollarama will help to both increase visitor traffic at Cornwall Square and fulfill a market niche, which will result in the improvement of future leasing efforts at the property,” says Jane Domenico, Chief Executive Officer at Partners Real Estate Investment Trust, owners of Cornwall Square.

Cornwall Square is a large enclosed mall that overlooks the St. Lawrence River in Downtown Cornwall. The mall is home to over 60 retailers and restaurants.

With approximately 1,050 locations across Canada, Dollarama is the premier Canadian dollar store operator offering a broad assortment of everyday consumer products, general merchandise, and seasonal items.  The new Dollarama store will join other existing Dollarama locations in Cornwall, although the new store will be the first Dollarama within the downtown core.
