The Circa site is one of at least four scheduled to open next year as Marshalls makes its move into Canada, the chief executive of RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust said in an interview.

“We have re-leased it to a Marshalls,” RioCan president and chief executive officer Ed Sonshine said of the former nightclub space located on John Street between King and Richmond streets.
