It’s unclear where specifically Curacao and Dick’s will be housed in the Brookfield Properties mall, but each retailer is listed as taking 35,000 square feet. Market Watch last year published a report with a small mention that Gold’s Gym would be taking residence in a portion of the now-shuttered Sears space. With nearly 270,000 square feet of space, it’s likely that both Curacao and Dick’s will share the Sears building with Gold’s, while still leaving quite a bit of square footage behind. Outfront, Sears’ former Auto Center, which sits in the parking lot of the shuttered department store, is planned to be a Porto’s Bakery. Reps for each company on Tuesday were not immediately available to comment on the incoming stores when reached via telephone by WNLA and a spokesperson for Brookfield Properties as of this publication is working on confirming the details.

Northridge Fashion Center, which has been closed on-and-off-again since March to slow the spread of COVID-19, is reopening Wednesday, Oct. 7, the spokesperson said. Those details are also forthcoming. Malls and other indoor Los Angeles County businesses were greenlit to reopen mid-week by government officials with a few restrictions still in place: limited to 25 percent capacity and food courts, common areas are to remain closed.
