Visits to Cambridge Centre mall up as new offerings roll out

Foot traffic through the mall is on the rise, says general manager Monique Marceau
Cambridge Centre mall is hoping new activities and stores, including the pop-up rollerskating outfit SUSO Skate Co. filling the former ice rink space, will lead to increased foot traffic.

With the recent resurrection of Zellers and news of SUSO Skate Co. bringing their roller skating services to the previously vacant rink near the food court, the Cambridge Centre mall is once again becoming a viable option for shopping and entertainment.

The mall has already seen an increase in foot traffic in recent months, says general manager Monique Marceau.

“Cambridge Centre is experiencing increased foot traffic overall,” Marceau said.

“We're happy to have Zellers join us again. Visitors to the centre will appreciate the product mix, value and nostalgia.”

Marceau points out that the increase foot traffic has been beneficial to other retail outlets, as well.

Speaking of nostalgia, it's part of what the mall and SUSO Skate Co. is hoping draws people out for their roller skating events.

“Roller skating has made a comeback and it’s an activity that is fun for the whole family and all age groups,” Marceau said.

“We anticipate that once SUSO opens, it will generate excitement within the community. Visitors will have access to another appealing entertainment venue at the centre.”

Additional stores and food selections, including Specsavers, Taste of Mediterranean/Mexicana Kitchen and Sephora are all slated to open in 2023 and will help fill vacancies in current storefronts.

Two more events will also be taking place on May 6.

The Cambridge Sports Hall of Fame will be hosting their induction ceremony at 1 p.m and Meet the Earth Rangers, an animal show, will be happening between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.

“We experienced an increase in foot traffic in our shopping centre and expect that this will continue to grow as guests visit their favourite retailers and experience new offerings,” Marceau said.

“We're committed to improving our retail mix to serve the needs of our community.”
