Cherry Lane moving Urban Dollar to expand food court

Three new restaurant spots are part of wider renovations in the food court area

The Cherry Lane Shopping Centre’s Urban Dollar is set for demolition and relocation, making way for three new spots in the mall’s food court.

The mall’s management says they’re looking to add national franchises to the list of options currently available in the food court.

“We will still have the mom and pop retailers which will give the food court a nice assortment of nationals and locals,” Cherry Lane general manager Judy Richards said in a news release. “This will create a very special mix and great choices for our customers who have been telling us through our online survey what they want.”

While the Urban Dollar will be torn down for the food court expansion, it’s not going away entirely. The store will be moving to another spot within the mall, according to management.

The work will also add some restaurant space in the spot formerly occupied by Ricky’s. A new seating space and floor treatment are also in the works, along with newly renovated and repositioned washrooms.

“We’re very excited about this,” Richards said. “It’s been a long time since there has been a major renovation.”

Work will kick off in the summer and is expected to be completed by Dec. 1, with work set to go ahead in phases.

Currently, the food court has five restaurants, none of which will be closed during the renovation, management says.
