Boale, Wood and Company Ltd., the trustees for Brookfield Mall since it went into receivership last summer, has confirmed that discussions are being held with a prospective client for the space in the mall formerly used by Safety Mart.
Company spokesperson John McEown has also confirmed that the mall will be listed for sale shortly.
Brookfield Mall was built in the early 1970s with Safety Mart as its main business.
Buy-Low Foods bought out Safety Mart in November, 2013.
The grocery business moved into its new 25,000 sq. ft. location in the new Clearwater Shopping Centre next to Highway 5 almost exactly one year later.
Since then Interior Savings Credit Union and Pharmasave have moved from Brookfield Mall to the new shopping centre (although Pharmasave still maintains a small outlet at the mall).
Last Saturday the coffee shop Bayley’s Bistro served its last lunch at the mall. Owner Noreen Venables will be working at Lacarya Golf Course.
At present the only remaining businesses at Brookfield Mall are Royal Bank, BC Liquor Store, The Grooming Shop, and Clearwater Times.
