More Retailers Coming to Sydney’s Mayflower Mall

Several newcomers are leasing space in the Cape Breton region’s largest indoor shopping centre following an expansion. Greg Morrison, general manager of Mayflower mall in Sydney, N.S. told CTV that 2023 has been a big year for the retail property. French beauty products retailer Sephora will move into the mall in November, he told the television network. Women’s plus-size clothing retailer Torrid will also be opening a store at Mayflower as the busy Christmas season looms. Pretzel Maker and Mrs. Fields will set up shop at Mayflower in the near future, too, according to Morrison. A Lids hat store opened recently and a HomeSense outlet moved into the mall in the spring. The retail influx provides a boost for the local economy, Jenna Lahey, CEO for the Cape Breton Regional Chamber of Commerce, told CTV. “I think it has a lot of do with our increasing population,” she said.
