Eau Claire Mall Closure – End of an Era

By March 13, 2024No Comments

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the coming closure of Eau Claire Market on Friday, May 31st 2024. Since the early 90’s, Eau Claire Market has been more than just a shopping centre; it has been a free-spirited hub of activity, culture, and memories for all who have visited.

The building will be handed over to the City of Calgary on June 1st to pave the way for the future Eau Claire Green Line LRT Station. JOEY Eau Claire and LOCAL Public Eatery will continue to operate, along with a section of the south surface parking lot.

As we prepare to bid farewell to Eau Claire Market, we look to the future with optimism and excitement. When one door closes, another opens, and we are excited to see a new chapter that holds tremendous opportunity for the revitalization and growth of downtown Calgary.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our past and current retailers of Eau Claire Market, all of whom brought their own special flavour and character to the market over the years. We hope the community continues to support these independent retailers as they embark on new adventures beyond the walls of Eau Claire Market.

A special farewell festival is being planned for Saturday, May 11th, and will be a final opportunity to reminisce, celebrate, and honour the legacy of Eau Claire Market together as a community.

Lastly, to the citizens of Calgary, we want to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to you for your unwavering support. You have made Eau Claire Market a special place filled with warmth, laughter, and unforgettable moments. Though our physical doors may close, the spirit of Eau Claire Market will live on in the hearts of our community forever.

Thank you for the memeauries,
Harvard Developments and the staff/retailers of Eau Claire Market
