    To properly answer that question - one would have to be confirmed with an official announcment that is opening. So to answer your question with the facts that we know would be - NO - there is NO timeframe to opening due to the fact that there is no announcment. Crystal clear?

      Yes, please pardon my ignorance.

      • its on retail insider now


        Edmonton Whole Foods Space Goes to H-Mart: Whole Foods was originally supposed to move into a 42,000 square foot retail space the former Canadian Tire building at 3803 Calgary Trail in Edmonton last year, but the store never opened for a variety of reasons. Now, Chris Buyze, via Twitter, says that US-based Korean-themed grocery chain H-Mart will open its first Alberta store in that location.


        H-Mart has been opening stores across Canada, after opening its first Canadian store in suburban Vancouver in 2003. Another interesting target has been the downtown Toronto market. H-Mart opened a small store at 695 Yonge Street, a block south of Bloor Street, several months ago, and it will also eventually open a store in the former American Apparel space at 338 Yonge Street. Downtown Toronto’s population is exploding, and grocery retailers are moving in to serve new residents.

        • Aha. That will make my wife very happy. She's Asian. There's lots of parking at that spot too. We are always having fun parking at the T&T lots and Lucky 97. I generally drop her at the door and Sonny Boy and I then go round and round the parking lots until there's a space. West Ed T&T is the worst. Great news for this suburban family! Seeing is believing though. I will be watching for equipment and crews to move onto the site. I've heard the place still needs a floor poured so there's quite a lot of work to be done inside. A nice place to work inside during the winter. The building looks awesome on the outside, very classy. Kind of BClike with all those timbers and such.

          • i am sure it will be popular, there is one within a 5 minute walk from me here in coquitlam and the place is always busy, they have a food court type offerings inside as well. I prefer it over T&T. Vancouver has about 6 of them now with 1 or 2 more coming soon.

            • With the amount of Asians moving in they could just keep building stores

                  • Drove by today and there is blue fencing put up around it, as if something may happen. I used the TD drive through next door. Was telling the wife about it, she’s Vietnamese. At least there is a decent size parking lot, T&Ts get pretty tight, same with Lucky 97.

                    • I think that T&T lot is the worst in the city. Even when they have the parking people there during busy times, people have insane difficulty parking and driving properly. I cringe every time my wife says she wants to go to Homesense next door.

                      This H Market is taking a long, long time to get going.
                      They're going to park their car over there. You're going to park your car over here. Get it?

                          • Do you think there will be two or will they cancel the Calgary trail one.

                              That's great news for me depending on what their selection is. The old Sobeys was my go-to store because it had the handiest bus stop to get to the train station and hence home for me. I really miss it as I haven't found another store as accessible. (Most large groceries require a slippy walk across a parking lot.)
