One of Richmond’s long-standing institutions is going to get a new address this fall.
The ICBC Driver Licensing Office at 5740 Minoru Blvd. will be moving to Lansdowne Centre. The office has been in operation at its Minoru location since 1972, when it ran alongside the provincial vehicle inspection facility.
According to management at the shopping mall, ICBC’s licensing office at Ironwood Mall will also be shifting to Lansdowne Centre to provide a more centralized location in the city for those being tested for their BC Driver’s Licence or renewal applications.
Bronwyn Bailey, marketing manager at Lansdowne Centre the shopping centre is looking forward to welcoming the new licensing service which will be more convenient for clients to access.
“We have plenty of parking and the licensing office is in the space previously occupied by Home Hardware which was close to one of our main entrances,” she said.
Also on tap to open this fall is the new Target department store.
Bailey said re-development of the two-storey, 138,000-square-foot site where Zellers, and originally Eaton’s was located is on schedule. Last week, the new store’s sign was put in place. And for the last month newly hired staff have undergone training.
