Visitors to Bower Place Shopping Centre will soon be able to mix a grande caffè vanilla Frappuccino or a venti caramel macchiato in with their shopping.

Starbucks plans to open a coffee shop in the south Red Deer mall, confirmed shopping centre manager John Rooke. It will occupy the space in the food court that was vacated by Good Earth Coffeehouse and Bakery at the end of June, and should be open in time for the Christmas shopping season, he said.

Meanwhile, Thai Express opened in the food court on July 19. It replaced Vanellis.

Elsewhere in the mall, The Source electronics store is scheduled to relocate to a portion of the bay that became available with the closure of Eddie Bauer in January, said Rooke. Cleo recently moved within the mall to take the remainder of the Eddie Bauer space.

Spencer Gifts is slated to move into The Source’s current location, and a new tenant is close to being signed for Cleo’s former space, said Rooke. He said previously that the business is one that would be new to the Red Deer marketplace.

“The tenant will most likely be taking possession in early January of next year,” said Rooke.

The Source and Spencer Gifts should be settled into their new premises before Christmas, he added.
