History

Opened in October 1971; one of the original anchor stores was 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[2]. 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. There will be an expansion in 2019 as well.

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 reopened as a Sporting Life.

In spring 2019, a "luxury" movie theatre is expected to open up in the southwest corner of the mall where Staples used to be located.[3]
