A new off-price department store will soon be coming to Langford, and is reportedly ahead of schedule on when it will officially open its doors.

Marshalls, which makes up part of the Winners and HomeSense retail group, is set to move into retail space in the Millstream Village shopping centre this March.

The new Marshalls will occupy roughly 18,000 square feet of retail space, taking over what was the former locations of a Tommy Hilfiger outlet and a La Vie En Rose lingerie boutique, as well as the three spaces between them.

The department store will become one of the shopping centre’s anchor tenants, joining the ranks of other big box retailers like PetSmart, Michael’s, and Golf Town.

Marshalls’sister store, Winners, recently opened their third Greater Victoria location, which now occupies the Douglas Street frontage of downtown’s Bay Centre.

The two other Winners locations reside in Tillicum Shopping Centre, and Westshore Town Centre.

Greater Victoria’s first Marshalls location has been open in the Hillside Shopping Centre since 2014.

“We are excited to launch the new Marshalls location in Victoria,” says Erin O’Brien, Marshalls Canada spokesperson. “We know that our customers are smart shoppers who seek stylish merchandise and we’re excited to provide them with incredible deals on high-quality, in-season items from the brands they know and love.”

To mark the grand opening of the Victoria store, Marshalls will donate $5,000 to The Cridge Transition House for Women as part of their new charitable initiative, Find Your Stride.

“We are dedicated to helping women in vulnerable positions across Canada achieve economic independence so that they and their families can thrive in life. Supporting women and their families in the neighbourhoods where our stores are located is integral to Marshalls’ business and helps foster a sense of community for both our associates and customers alike,” O’Brien explains.

The grand opening ceremony of Marshalls will take place at 10:00 a.m. on March 9th.
