TSC, a farm and country home improvement store, and Fabricland, are scheduled to move in to Sudbury's Southridge Mall, located at the Four Corners, in September.

TSC will move into the former Zellers space – where it is expected to occupy 32,000 square feet by mid-September, confirmed Patrick MacIsaac, owner of the Southridge Mall property.

“They're a unique store for Sudbury,” he said.

The store, based in London, Ont., specializes in farm and country home improvement and outdoor hobbies.

The stores carry a wide range of products, that range from automotive and fencing supplies, to pet supplies.

There are 45 TSC stores across Canada.

Fabricland, Canada's largest fashion fabric distributor, will occupy 12,000 square feet next to TSC. The store is expected to open its doors in early September.

“They're both in the process of moving in now,” MacIsaac said about the stores.

MacIsaac also owns the Sudbury Downs, and has been a big proponent for a casino in Sudbury.

He said his property at the Four Corners is not being considered as a future location for a casino.

“We hope and expect that the casino will stay out at the race track,” he said. “I think it makes imminent sense.”

Last month, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation said its plans for a casino are a couple years behind, but still moving ahead.

The initial plan was to issue the request for proposal before the end of 2012. But with the uproar that followed the cancellation of the Racetracks at Slots program, which supported that industry, and Kathleen Wynne becoming premier in 2013, the process slowed considerably.

Money for horse racing — $500 million — was found, although no deal was reached to keep racing at Sudbury Downs.
The 2014 harness racing season at Sudbury Downs was cancelled in May.
