“Since 2006 we have opened more than 320 Walmart Supercentres, which have proven very popular with customers and are present in almost every market in the Canadian market. We are redirecting our focus and investment to improve our existing network of stores, distribution centres and ecommerce offer. As a result we will not proceed with plans to open the store at Lakeshore and Cawthra”. – Walmart Spokesperson

Lakeshore Road E. from Seneca Avenue to Cooksville Creek — including The District at Lakeview which was to house the retailer — was recently made a part of the Port Credit Business Improvement Area.

There were no immediate plans for the vacant retail space reported.
