New Horizon Mall will be the most culturally diverse shopping destination in Southern Alberta as each retail space will provide shoppers with internationally unique products or services, including contemporary fashion, high-tech goods, and exotic everyday items. Shoppers will be able to buy local rather than travel overseas to find that special gift.
This international themed mall offers the opportunity to those who have always wanted to start and operate their own businesses to do so in a vibrant contemporary and convenient mall environment.
“The New Horizon Mall is a unique addition to Calgary’s vibrant and entrepreneurial retail landscape,” says Eli Swirsky, president of Torgan Group. “Unlike other malls which are occupied primarily by large corporations and chains, New Horizon Mall will encompass a collection of small businesses, family enterprises and local entrepreneurs bringing unique products and services to the Calgary region.”
Swirsky continues, “Smaller businesses have long wanted access to the same kind of shopping mall environment and the corresponding customer base enjoyed by larger businesses. This mall breaks down the barriers for businesses looking for that retail advantage in a unique mall environment not found anywhere else in Southern Alberta.”
New Horizon Mall’s unique shopping experience will be matched with culturally distinct forms of entertainment, as a main stage provides a valuable venue for cultural events, holiday celebrations and fashion shows organized year-round.
A modern and unique food court will feature 26 restaurants where shoppers will have the opportunity to sample a variety of international cuisines and local specialties from dozens of national and independent owner-operated eateries.
Swirsky adds, “We’re incredibly excited that this major project is at the point of being occupied by local businesses eager to bring their unique products and services to the Calgary region. I believe that the New Horizon Mall will fill an important gap in the retail environment in Calgary and offer a distinctive avenue for businesses looking to expand and grow their customer base.”
