Dixie Outlet Mall, also referred to as Dixie Value Mall, is a shopping mall in Mississauga, Canada, located on the south side of the Queen Elizabeth Way highway. It is Canada's largest enclosed outlet mall.

This outlet mall is known for its brand name outlets, including Guess, Mexx, Jacob, Tommy Hilfiger, Winners, Levis, Danier and much more.[2]

Dixie Outlet Mall is owned by Cominar, a Canadian firm.[2][1]

History[edit]

Opened in 1956, Dixie Outlet Mall was known as Dixie Plaza until the late 1980s after significant expansion and renovations took place. The name Dixie Plaza was adopted by another property in the 1980s. It was the first mall of its kind in Mississauga (then known as Toronto Township, or specifically, Lakeview) and is the oldest still in operation.

Anchors and majors[edit]

Fantastic Flea Market[edit]

Established in 1976, the Fantastic Flea Market is the oldest flea market in Toronto.[3] Located in the basement of the Dixie Outlet Mall, the flea market offers a diverse collection of bargains and giveaways such as clothing, jewellery, video games, antiques and memorabilia, while also providing personal services like electronic and watch repairs.[4] Open year round with over 125 vendors, the Fantastic Flea Market’s motto is: “A community that shares is a community that cares!” [5]

Green initiative[edit]

Dixie Outlet Mall is "100% Bullfrog Powered", meaning that it runs directly on clean and renewable electricity generated by wind and hydroelectric sources. Dixie Outlet Mall also provides many recycling stations throughout the mall. In fact, this outlet mall was awarded the Gold Award by the Recycling Council of Ontario in 2010 for its efforts. [6]

Guest services[edit]

Located near the Yellow Entrance, Dixie Outlet Mall’s Guest Services Kiosk includes several mall representatives to provide information and answer questions. Other services offered include ATMs, public telephones and wheel-chair accessible washrooms.[7]
