Three Canadian retailers are entering the Australian market and will make their debut as part of the redevelopment of Adelaide’s Rundle Place, which is set to open in March.
Point Zero, Joshua Perets and La Vie en Rose enter the Australian market in 2013.
"We are very excited to open our first stores in a growing city like Adelaide. Rundle Place has proven to be the right spot for us with the best mixture of national and international big brands "said Joseph Waknine, director of Retail Expansion, the master licensor of the three retailers.
Rundle Place is a $385 million redevelopment of the old Harris Scarfe site currently under construction. It will include a four storey retail centre, anchored by Coles and a food court on the lower level; Harris Scarfe department store on part of Level 1 and all of Level 2 and approximately 70 specialty retail tenancies, with the fashion offering to be provided on ground level.
“We are thrilled to have three of Canada’s leading retailers making their Australian debut in Rundle Place” said Stephen Hyde, Pacific Group leasing executive.
"The confidence shown by these three who we’ve bought into Australia via their master licensor Retail Expansion, in addition to others who are entering the Adelaide market for the first time and in some instances doing so ahead of opening outlets along the eastern seaboard is particularly pleasing and highlights the premium offering of Rundle Place.”
