The west mall in downtown Vancouver has gone into a state of flux, with many stores closing or relocating.
The mall will be shut down from July 20 to July 21.
The west has been home to many local businesses, including a chain of shops that is now known as The Covenanters, according to a news release.
The Westcott-based store is owned by a Chinese company, Westcott Capital.
Westcott said in a statement that it will be “inundated” with inquiries from the public about what will happen to the mall and the surrounding neighborhood.
The company did not say how much it will cost to open Westcott.
It will be open on Wednesday, July 20 and will be available to the public through Friday, July 22, the statement said.
Westcott has a mall in the city of Richmond, which will also close, as will a branch in the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby, which has a smaller Westcott mall.
In Vancouver, there will be about 200 businesses that will be affected by the mall’s closure, including about a dozen grocery stores, about 20 bars and restaurants and a few shops, according the Vancouver Sun.
Some stores that remain open are:• Bodega and Grocery, in the Westcott Building, which is the mall office;• Laundromat, which sits at the corner of Burnside Street and Cambie Street;• Pico Restaurant, in Vancouver’s east end;• The Covert, in a shopping centre at the Westcott Mall, just north of downtown Vancouver.• Lobo, in Richmond;• Kootenay Food Market, on Burnside;• the Westcotts in Richmond and Burnaby;• Westcott Cafe, in Burnaby’s West End.
