Vernon – Open Centre – Vernon Square
A 9Round 30 Minute Fitness will open at Vernon Square Shopping Centre this Spring/Summer. The 2100 square foot fitness concept provides 30 minute full-body workouts in a convenient circuit format for members. Vernon Square is a 151,110-square foot Safeway and London Drugs-anchored open centre, located on Hwy 97 and 43rd Ave in Vernon in British Columbia’s Okanagan region. The location provides strong exposure to Hwy 97, Okanagan’s major route connecting Vernon to the northern communities of Salmon Arm, Sicamouse and Revelstoke as well as Lake Country, Kelowna, Penticton and Osoyoos to the south. The centre features a mix of over 20 tenants including Dollarama, Vernon Liquor Store, Pet Planet, White Spot and Prospero Credit Union. Several in-line spaces starting at about 1100 square feet are available and the suggested uses include specialty food, restaurants, services, home good and fashion. Traffic to the centre is enhanced by the yearly influx of tourism visiting the surrounding lakes, wineries and Silver Star Ski Resort. Vernon Square is also located next to Kal Tire Place, a hockey arena and recreation centre, which is about to undergo an expansion to include a second regulation-size ice rink, seating for 400 spectators, dryland training facility, multi-purpose room, additional office space and a new parking area. A Spring 2018 completion is targeted. Nancy Bayly and Stefan Safrata at Sitings Realty are handling the leasing on Vernon Square.
