Biz Showcase – Westmount Shopping Centre
With an ever-changing retail environment all around us, Westmount Shopping Centre’s newest redevelopment project will redefine and refocus the property to better meet the changing needs of our growing neighbourhood.
From its humble beginnings in 1971 (with just 15 stores and Dominion as the main anchor) as the centre of the historic Westmount neighbourhood, this newest project signals a rebirth of a much loved community centre.
Westmount Shopping Centre has been a part of a vibrant community for 49 years, staying connected through more than just shopping, but also a variety of fun, unique events and activities to please all ages. From their monthly Kids’ Club activities, Walking Club, Community events (Annual Easter Egg Hunt with the London Majors Baseball Players, Earth Week Celebrations with ClothingWorks, Celebrity Pumpkin Carving Event, etc.), charity partnerships (London Food Bank, Bereaved Families, Children’s Health Foundation, and CPRI, just to name a few) and so much more, Westmount continues to be a community hub. It is not unusual to see friends meeting for coffee, staff taking a break and chatting as they walk to clear their heads, exercise classes taking place with the VON, patients going to their doctors or others just strolling through stores shopping at their leisure. We all have a lot in common. There is a true vibe of belonging, of being a part of the community around us and feeling at home.
As Westmount transitions, events and activities continue to be offered with some exciting new choices to compliment the new vision for the centre.
Westmount has recently had the pleasure of welcoming the Royal Ontario Museum back with their Travelling Planetarium, along with TVO/TVOKids, the Canadian Nature Museum, and our amazing community partners (Westmount Family Centre, London Public Library and CPRI) over the month of March. Stay in touch through our Facebook and website (westmountshoppingcentre.com) for future announcements as we’re not “clowning around”. Activities, events and redevelopment news are posted to keep everyone informed.
The heart of Canada’s first planned community is set to beat again in dramatic fashion. Watch as we evolve.
