New eatery tabbed for SMK premises

There is a new restaurant confirmed for the former spot of SMK Smokery + Bar at the Tsawwassen Commons.

In an email with the Optimist this week, Novy Cheema, associate director of real estate for Gracorp Capital Advisors Inc. said, “The old SMK premises will be changing concept to a Wing’s Taphouse. They should be open early next year.”

The GoldWings Entertainment Group, which is also the parent company for WINGS Restaurants & Pubs, developed SMK Smokery + Bar as a new & highly anticipated concept, when it opened at the Commons in November of last year, but the restaurant shut its doors in early August saying in a Facebook post that the “timing of the location is not economically feasible at this time.”

Anchored by Walmart, Canadian Tire, Rona and others, the 100-store mall on Tsawwassen First Nation land was expected to open in October 2016 in conjunction with the adjacent 200-store Tsawwassen Mills, but a slower than anticipated retail market stalled construction.

Once fully complete, Tsawwassen Commons will be a 550,000-square-foot open air shopping centre.
