Doors will close April 24 with Pseudio moving into the space

Samuel & Co. is leaving the Charlottetown Mall and its doors will close April 24.

The Charlottetown Mall is losing another tenant.

Samuel & Co. is running an advertisement in The Guardian promoting a closing out sale which got underway on Thursday.

An employee at the store said its doors will be closing April 24 and Pseudio will take over the space. Pseudio began in Halifax in 1985 and now has 30 stores across Atlantic Canada and Alberta.

The Guardian tried to contact RioCan, which owns the mall, but the call was not immediately returned on Thursday.

The Samuel & Co. website says that: "established in Halifax, N.S. in 1996, Samuel & Co., has focused its initiatives on providing the ladies of Atlantic Canada with boutique fashions in the convenience of a mall setting." 

Organizations: Sanuel Co., RioCan

Geographic location: Halifax, Atlantic Canada, Alberta

    This is a serious situation. Summerside is sinking bad as well. Downtown area there is a ghost town. People are going off Island for almost anything these days. The economy is bad and the Politicians are always putting a positive spin on everything and at the same time giving themselves big raises. Do they care? No, if they did they would live by example. Summerside Councillors had the gaul to give themselves a 1`2% raise followed by another 22% in two years. No wonder they walk in shame. Charlottetown Councilors did the same, plus Government mismanaging Departments and continually giving us mis truths. They will all get theirs someday, hopefully soon.

    The Island has become nothing but dollar stores and polyester. grocery stores produce and fruit are terrible. We shop off Island at least once a month for clothes and some groceries, it's more than worth it! I'm sorry PEI until there are some quality stores here more and more people will shop away

    This is so sad! Our mall is becoming a Ghost Town....Confederation Court Mall IS already a Ghost Town! The malls are charging way too much rent and the stores have to overcharge to last. The Charlottetown Mall says they are charging over $12 per square foot!! Imagine having to pay that plus employees ....they have to charge a lot for their merchandise just to survive. Soon we will have NO place to shop. Right now we have Walmart to buy household goods...and they are slowly adding more and more to their prices, thinking we don't notice! They can do that because they don't have any competition!

    More to come. Without an anchor tenant the Mall is becoming a ghost town. Rio Can. better get busy on those plans for the Target space the Guardian reported on in Dec. 2015 or there won't be a tenant left in the mall.
