New Sarnia Tepperman’s Takes Shape

Sarnia’s new Tepperman’s store on London Rd. is really taking shape.

President Andrew Tepperman says construction of the concept store is right on schedule.

“All of the exterior paneling has gone up, the frame is done and soon the whole facility will be enclosed and we can start working on the interior,” says Tepperman.

He says the building should be complete by February and then a few months will be spent setting up the interior fixtures and merchandising.

“We should be able to open in late April or early May,” he says.

The 40,000 sq ft store is going to look very different compared to the current store at Lambton Mall.

A New York designer was hired to create a store with a drive-through customer pickup area, café and kids area.
