Ardene at Parkland Mall will be making a big move, an over 6.5 times larger of a move.

The store will be moving to the former Sport Chek location and will be over 16,000 square feet.

Currently, there are only six of these megastore formats in Alberta, with Parkland’s location being the seventh.

“We’re very excited that it’s going in here,” said McKnight.

The new Ardene store is expected to open in the Spring of 2019.
