Anchors and majors[edit]

Previous anchors[edit]

Georgian Mall originally opened with Sears as its only department store and Dominion as a supermarket. Next door in a separate development was a free-standing K-mart department store. The first major expansion added a single floor Eatons as anchor to a new two-level mall addition. (when Eaton's went bankrupt this space was divided into Sport Chek and Home Sense.) The next addition connected the mall to the K-mart building. When K-mart was bought by the Hudson's Bay Company this space was converted to The Bay.
