Lacombe Mall undergoing renovations

LACOMBE – Lacombe Centre Mall will undergo renovations over the next two years.

This year the mall will see an expansion of the Peavey Mart space and upgrades to the north half of the mall exteriors.

New owners Lacombe Centre GP investment group will also add a new KFC franchise, with a drive-thru in the east parking lot.

Next year, mall exterior upgrades will be completed – along with a resurfaced parking lot. Local business Scott Builders is contracted for the design and construction.

“Council welcomes the revitalization of this important economic space in Lacombe,” said Lacombe Mayor Grant Creasey. “This refresh will allow Lacombe Centre to be a hotspot for business in our community for years to come.”

Kristal Heise, President of Lacombe Centre GP, said they have been warmly welcomed in Lacombe and believe the community is an excellent place to invest.

“The city has been very cooperative, and we appreciate their open-for-business approach while keeping their history and uniqueness in place. Our investment group includes some local content, so we have good information to make decisions.”

Construction is planned to begin in June 2021.
