Hot Fudge Sweetens Up Les Rivieres

August 07, 2011

In late July, Hot Fudge opened its second store, at Les Rivieres, in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. The premises is 1350 sq.ft, and is strategically situated at the mall's 50 yard line, on the corner, looking into the food court. The space offers 2-sided exposure, with over 45 feet of total frontage. The store, which was designed by Frederic Bernier, is both innovative and fresh, and looks absolutely fantastic.

Hot Fudge specializes in the sale of men's and women's branded fashion accessories, catering to the 16-34 year old . The store carries such items as watches, sunglasses, handbags, hats, belts, costume jewellery, headphones...etc, from well known brands such as Nixon, Rayban, G-Shock, Oakley, Betsey Johnson, Michael Kors, and many others.

Hot Fudge will continue to grow and expand in 2012; plans are to open four (4) new store locations. The company will consider opportunities in super regional malls throughout the province of Quebec. Size required is 1500 sq.ft.
About Les Rivieres - Owned by Ivanhoe Cambridge, Les Rivieres is the largest regional mall between Montreal and Quebec City. The centre has 140 stores, with a GLA in excess of 566,000 sq.ft. Sales per square foot are approximately $415 psf (a strong performing property by Quebec standards). Annual traffic is 5 million. The mall is home to such top fashion retailers such as BCGB, Mexx, Le Chateau, La Senza, Aldo, Dynamite\Garage, Tristan, Jack & Jones...etc.

I want to thank Eric Fortier of Ivanhoe, for all of his efforts, help, and patience, throughout our negotiation. Eric is a tremendous leasing talent, who is creative and thinks out of the box. He is also very pleasant to deal with.
