WINNIPEG — The large vacant retail space that once housed Target in Polo Park will soon have a new tenant moving in.
24-7 Intouch, a Winnipeg-based customer contact centre, will open its fourth campus in the city by setting up in the former store.
Construction is underway to transform 55,000-square-feet of the 107,000-square-foot space by mid-2018.
“Winnipeg is our home, and we are very excited to be a part of the growing business community at Polo Park,” said Greg Fettes, co-founder and CEO of 24-7 Intouch.
The company says the move will create an additional 500 new jobs over the next year.
24-7 Intouch will have 15 campuses worldwide once the new building is complete and has more than 6,000 employs worldwide.
Other tenants confirmed for the former Target building include Winners and HomeSense — part of TJX Companies Inc. — which also operates the nearby Marhsalls on Empress Street.
