Brick and Paws & Claws move to Alberni Mall

The Brick and Paws & Claws are moving to the Alberni Mall.

Two more retailers have announced they will be moving into the Alberni Mall as Shape Properties redevelops the property at the north end of Johnston Road.

The Brick owner Garth Hamilton said he will be moving his furniture store to a new location in the summer of 2013.

“We’ll probably increase our showroom floor by almost 40 per cent and the store by about 25 to 30 per cent,” he said.

There is the potential to hire more employees as well.

Paws & Claws, a Canadian-owned line of pet supply and grooming stores, will open a 6,000 square foot store in the mall in late fall 2012, said Suzanne Murdoch, general manager of Paws & Claws BC.

“We know we’re getting the key Oct. 1. That is contingent on all the development being done on time and then we have to do our build on the inside,” she said.

Westcoast Home Hardware has already announced it will move into the old mall space in November 2012.
