Ethnic malls

Demographic change is creating opportunities for a new breed of shopping mall-maker. Savvy investors and developers have been buying older malls, which tended to serve Caucasian Canadian customers, and shifting them instead to focus on fast-growing ethnic markets. Examples of this include Pacific Mall in Markham, O.N. and Aberdeen Mall in Richmond, B.C., which concentrate on Asian consumers.
