Avalon Mall Grand Reopening Rundown!July 23, 2021
We are thrilled to have reached substantial completion of the redevelopment of Avalon Mall, and to be sharing details of the Grand Reopening celebration! This is an important milestone in the trajectory of Crombie's development pipeline. We're delivering on our commitment to invest in quality real estate that enhances the communities in which we operate. Our Avalon Mall team facilitated various community-oriented activities and celebrations to commemorate this great achievement.
The festivities kicked-off with an outdoor concert by Tim Baker, which took place in the Avalon Mall parking lot. Guests were able to enjoy the concert safely from their vehicles and the event was live-streamed on Avalon's Facebook page for those who were unable to attend or live outside the province. Among the festivities and in partnership with the Newfoundland Antique and Classic Car Club, Avalon hosted a classic auto show in its parking garage, where admission was by donation, with all proceeds going to First Light.
The Official Grand Reopening Ceremony took place on Saturday, June 26th. The event was live-streamed on Avalon Mall's Facebook page, where remarks were given by Brian Dobson, Regional Property Manager, Donna Vincent, General Manager, Avalon Mall, as well members of our leadership team (joining virtually): Don Clow, Glenn Hynes, Trevor Lee, and Arie Bitton.
We were honoured to have the opportunity to support First Light, a non-profit organization that serves the urban Indigenous and non-Indigenous community alike by providing programs and services rooted in the revitalization, strengthening, and celebration of Indigenous cultures and languages. Through donations by Crombie, Avalon Mall tenants, and customers of the mall, we were thrilled to present a cheque for $10,000 to First Light's Centre of Performance and Creativity.
