GATINEAU, QC, Feb. 13, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Les Promenades Gatineau shopping centre is proceeding with its recently announced $110 million redevelopment - the most significant renovation since the opening of the centre in 1978.

La Crémière, the exclusive ice cream shop, wanted to keep pace with the redevelopment and is now enjoying a new kiosk near entrance 8.

''We are very happy with this change that places us at the heart of the action,'' said Yan Desjardins, franchise owner of La Crémière. ''This new location brings us great visibility and enhanced traffic.'' Mr. Desjardins is convinced this change will be beneficial for La Crémière as well as Les Promenades Gatineau. In addition to enjoying a new physical environment, clients will have access to new products such as ice cream cupcakes.

The relocation of La Crémière is one of many improvements to Les Promenades Gatineau that will take place in the next months. ''The arrival of new stores such as Simons, H&M and Forever 21 will maximize the offer and meet customers' needs," said Serge Rossignol, General Manager, Les Promenades Gatineau. "This $110 million investment in modernizing Les Promenades Gatineau is one of the many ways Les Promenades is helping to develop the community and enrich the daily lives of Gatineau and Outaouais residents.''
