    It's a bit peculiar- made more so by the brand-new Marshalls that's less than a block away from the Mall itself! Near as I can tell, Winners and its associates have a borderline monopoly on that type of shopping, filling the void left by the Zellers and K-Marts of the world, so maybe they're just trying to capitalize on that foothold by landing a store anywhere they can?

    With Winners, I can see them wanting their flagship brand in the big location, leaving that poorer location on the upper floor (basically shoved into a corner) to the secondary brand- Marshalls. The WEM lower-floor thing is a BIG "Hey, look at us! Look at how well we're doing!" signal to both shoppers and other retailers. Kinda like those stores in Times Square in NYC, that all lose money because it's impossible to turn a profit in Times Square... but it's a great show-off.

    I'm not sure that's a bad thing for The Bay. If you cluster stores with similar products together that cluster will draw more customers in general because that way they don't have to drive all over town to shop around. It's convenient.
