I would like to ask you guys if i will need new Lmia. I'm in canada with close wp and i'm working in the retail store with lmia ect, i heard soon my employer will change the location of the store so it will be same employer (company) but in different adress in the same city it will be change only the street, in that way i have to change my work permit or need new Lmia??

What conditions were imposed on your LMIA? That document should have the answer to your question.
Well i was hired by the company who running this retail stores, so my employer will be same but it will be change only the store location, this branch not pay me nothing on my payroll i find my boss company name ect

You need to look at both the LMIA and your WP and whether it was specifically for one store.

Would email and get in writing that you can change stores to protect yourself.

No You should send in a webform to CIC asking your exact question and whether you can change locations.
Well i called CIC help line and tried to explained the situation the guy asked me if on my WP is printed any adress (i have only the city) and he said me there will be no problem to change the location because my work permit doesn't have any specific adress but only the city name and also my employer company will be same ect

Unfortunately you can’t trust the answers on the CIC customer service line. They give out wrong answers quite a lot. Having proof in writing that you can keep in your files is what is important.

In my opinion, It should not be a matter since you are working for same company. It's the company you work for not that specific location.

Any suggestions please?
