Everyone in the communities surrounding Creekside Shopping Center was surprised to learn a few months ago that the Rona in Creekside Shopping center was going to close.
Home improvement retailer Rona Inc.’s decision to shift to smaller stores from big-box outlets – closing or downsizing several of their stores– reflects a wider move among retailers: They’re rethinking the big-box store as they race to squeeze more business into fewer aisles and continue a gradual shift of retailing to the Web.
So now, one of the questions on everyone’s mind is, who is going to move into that space?
The most likely retailer to call Creekside home, Walmart! I’m hoping to hear more information regarding this soon. As I get confirmation that Walmart will be moving into the area and when they expect to open I will be letting you know!!
