History

Opened in August 1971, one of the original anchor stores were Woodward's Stores Ltd, with their Food Floor and Bargain Centre (which was a separate store in the mall).

In 1977, Famous Players opened its doors at the mall. It was removed during the food court expansion in 1987.[3] The mall underwent major expansions in 1988 and 2004. The latest expansion added the south wing, an underground parkade, a larger food court, and a complete renovation of the existing centre. The centre has a one-level 'racetrack' layout, or figure eight.

Logo used until October 2015

In 2012, longtime anchor tenant Zellers closed; it was redeveloped as a Target store, which opened on May 6, 2013, but closed in April 2015.

As of October 5, 2017, the anchor store previously containing Kmart, Zellers, and Target has redeveloped as several smaller retailers, including a Sporting Life and the relocated Homesense.

In late 2019, a "luxury" Landmark Cinemas movie theatre opened in the southwest corner of the mall property where Staples used to be located.[4]
