The Smithers Mall is getting a facelift.

Town Council recently approved a proposal by Proline Properties to begin work on an extensive renovation that will see the creation of new retail spaces.

Mark's Work Wearhouse and Sport Chek have signed on as new tenants, joining BC Liquor Store and Scotiabank.

"Once completed, the new Smithers Mall will be a revitalization to a shopping centre that was once an important part of the town of Smithers," Proline Properties' Adam Battistelli and Dixon Chow said in a press release.

"We are very excited to bring you the new Smithers Mall and look forward to working with community stakeholders to deliver a project that the entire town of Smithers can be proud of."

Highlights of the project include: update and modernization of the exterior façade, reconfiguration of the former Zellers' space and the consolidation of the interior mall.

The project completion date is scheduled for the fall of 2014.
