The expanded centre (illustration above) was proposed to be twice the size of the 1964 complex and would now extend to the Kingsway. Farmers would exapnd their existing store, a new supermarket, hardware store and junior department store. As for the original centre, it had been designed with future expansion in mind.

Final approval was given in early 1970.

By the end of 1970, Grace Bros would join as the "junior" department store and Nock & Kirbys would open a store in the expanded centre.
