Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
There’s been a lot going on here at White Oaks Mall and the new Food Court is progressing very well. The skylight is now complete and we’re nearing the completion of the ceiling work. Flooring and furnishings will be complete in the next month.
If you haven’t seen any of the improvements, come in and take a look. Here are some pictures to give you a taste of what you’ll see.
There’s been quite a bit of progress since my last update, and if you’ve visited White Oaks Mall you’ve seen some of the changes.
First. The height of the large hoarding in the food court has been cut down, which means two things. One… You can now get a better look at great fall styles at Costa Blanca, The Bay, Le Chateau, and Northern Reflections. And two… Grandpa can occupy his time watching the construction progress (while you check out some of the other 170 stores and services at the mall).
Second. Look up…. way up. You’ll see the first of two skylights is now visible and providing some natural light in the food court again. What you won’t see is that on the roof, construction on the other (and much larger) skylight is well under way. A sneak peek is right here…
Third. Just today, the first of the new food court tiles were laid. There are a number of different colours and styles of tile that will be installed. We think they are all beautiful… we hope you will agree.
Only a few days left of back to school shopping and there are soooooo many great fashions in the mall right now!! See you soon!
Don’t forget our Sidewalk Sale is on until Sunday July 25. So many amazing deals. You can get a preview of the sales on our website. www.whiteoaksmall.ca >> click on sales. While you’re there, take a look at our new web design and let us know what you think.
There are plenty of signs of progress in our food court renovation. Have a quick look up at the ceiling next time you’re enjoying a meal in the food court. You will see that a number of skylights have been removed or covered, the columns have been stripped, and of course the large wall enclosing the current construction area.
But it turns out the birds have the best view of the action. Earlier this week the steel supports for one of two skylights was constructed. It’s going to look great when it’s finished. Thanks for your support in the meantime.
After a beautiful day yesterday, White Oaks Mall is open again.
I Hope everyone had a wonderful Canada Day! Even though the mall was closed, White Oaks Mall was proud to sponsor the South London Canada Day Celebration. So much fun! The day was capped off with a fantastic fireworks display. There was free parking at the mall and we’re glad so many of you took advantage of it.
I haven’t updated for a couple of weeks. There’s been lots of work going on in the food court, but it’s mostly preparatory work for some of the big changes coming in the next month. You’ll see lots of pictures at that point…
The BMO ABM machine has moved to make way for construction. You can find the full-service ABM just outside the food court toward the White Oaks Mall Information Booth.
Even though the Food Court is being renovated, we still want to make sure you can enjoy your favourite meal or snack while you’re shopping. We still have the same number of seats and tables as before… they’re just spread our a little more. If you’re looking for a seat, try looking at one of these locations:
- Between American Eagle & Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
- Marble Slab Creamery and Auntie Anne’s
- Freshly Squeezed
- Between Royal Doulton & Jean Machine
Last night the remaining kiosks in the food court were removed and a hoarding wall was installed around the first phase of work. Although you can’t see inside the work area when you visit White Oaks Mall, we’ll sneak you some pictures on this blog to let you in on the action.
In behind the walled area, your favourite stores are still open for business. Le Chateau, Northern Reflections, Costa Blanca, The Bay, Yummier and Bourbon Street Grill are all ready to serve you. Pay them a visit and say hello!
