Winnipeg's Kildonan Place Sears store getting makeover

Kildonan Place has seen Zellers, Target and now Sears stores come and go but the Transcona mall appears to have plenty of fight left.

The city's urban planning division of the Planning, Property and Development department has approved plans for a major redevelopment of the property that looks like it will include a 39,000 square foot grocery store, a redevelopment of the existing Cineplex Famous Players movie theatre and a new food court. The proposal just needs to be approved by the East Kildonan-Transcona Community Committee where it is on the agenda for next Tuesday's meeting.

The mall management and ownership is not commenting at this point, but clearly a major project is in the works.
