A store renovation valued at almost one million dollars is poised to kick off a long-awaited rebirth of Station Mall.

A $950,000 building permit for interior renovations for an Urban Planet and Forever 21 store was the largest of 113 permits issued by the City of Sault Ste. Marie in April.

Urban Planet was one of the largest retailers in Cambrian Mall before it closed its doors there last fall.

Forever 21 is a newcomer to Sault Ste. Marie – a Los Angeles-based fast-fashion retailer that targets young Gen Z consumers with low-priced apparel that moves at warp speed from sketch designs to retail racks to ensure the latest styles.

New collections are continuously refreshed and purchasers tend to discard fast-fashion items very quickly, resulting in a heavy carbon footprint.

SooToday’s Alex Flood reported last November on plans for a $60-million revitalization of the half-century-old property, the second-largest shopping mall in northern Ontario.
