Place Portobello[edit]

Place Portobello [1] is a shopping mall located in Brossard, Quebec along Taschereau Boulevard near the Autoroute 10-Taschereau Interchange. Constructed in 1965, it expanded in 1976. Today the mall contains 65 stores occupying 400,551 square feet (37,212.4 m2) of rentable space. There is a building in the middle of the mall with second and third floors serving as commercial office spaces.

Since March 2011, Place Portobello is operated by First Capital Realty. Place Portobello was previously operated the Cogir Management Corporation. Although it no longer manages the mall, Cogir still has its corporate headquarters in the office building of Place Portobello.

Some major tenants include Target, Decor Depot, Maxi and Jean Coutu. There is a nearby Reno-Depot hardware store which is a tenant of Place Portobello despite not sharing any indoor or outdoor boundary with the rest of the mall. Walmart (once the first ever Woolco store in Quebec) left the mall in January 2008 to relocate to a larger stand alone building in Quartier DIX30 and was replaced by Zellers from December 2008 to December 2012. Prior to the closure of said Zellers on December 17, 2012, Place Portobello had the chain's second largest store in the province (after the location in Terrebonne). The Zellers was renovated and converted into a Target store, which opened its doors to the public on September 17, 2013.

Place Portobello was the second mall to be built in Brossard and is now the oldest mall in Brossard ever since the demolition of the city's first mall, Place Brossard, in 2002.

Longueuil[edit]

Greenfield Park[edit]

Galeries Taschereau[edit]

Galeries Taschereau is a strip mall opened in 1974. It was an enclosed mall until 2002. It is operated by Sandalwood Management Canada, a subsidiary of Sandalwood Management of Austin, Texas. The mall served as the city council of the city of Greenfield Park until the late 1990s.

The major tenants are Fruiterie 440, Village des Valeurs, L'Aubainerie, Marché du Store, and warehouses of Pennington, Taylor and Le Chateau. There is a Subway restaurant.

A Zellers was in the mall for 3 years (from 1984 to 1987). It was a significantly smaller store than typical Zellers outlets. Village des Valeurs and the Taylor warehouse occupy the space where this Zellers stood. This Zellers had no connection to the Zellers store that later opened in 1990 at Mail Carnaval.

Other than Zellers, notable past tenants of mall include A&P, Provigo, Future Shop, Bouclair and Banque de Montreal.

5000 Taschereau[edit]

5000 Taschereau is a shopping mall located in the borough of Greenfield Park, Quebec, Canada which opened around 1983. It is located on Taschereau Boulevard, near Greenfield Park's borough limit with neighbouring Brossard. From the late 1980s and up until 2010, the mall was called Mail Carnaval and was named after Super Carnaval (the ancestor of Super C) which operated until 1991.

A Jean Coutu pharmacy was one of the original tenants, but soon moved out. American fitness chain Gold's Gym had a brief presence in the mall in the early 1990s but closed, and was eventually replaced by Famous Players movie theatre (now closed). Other notable tenants that once made business at Mail Carnaval include a Do it Center hardware store, the National Bank of Canada and Zellers.

Up until 2007, Mail Carnaval was an indoor shopping centre. As of 2002, Mail Carnaval gradually began losing its small tenants and started resembling a dead mall. In the summer of 2007, the last small tenants left the mall and, on 2009, the pedestrian main section of the mall was demolished. Only the major tenants: Super C, Dollarama, Energie Cardio and the liquidations centres of Mexx and Tommy Hilfiger are still in operation.

For a number of years and up until 2009, Mail Carnaval was the headquarters of fitness chain Nautilus Plus which was located right next to the branch of competitor Energie Cardio. However, Nautilus Plus has never operated an actual branch in the mall.

Shortly after Zellers closure in May 2010, the name of the mall was changed from Mail Carnaval to 5000 Taschereau. The portion, between Super C and Dollarama, that served as the mall's indoor corridor was demolished and turned into a parking lot.

Place Greenfield Park[edit]

Saint-Hubert[edit]

Centre Cousineau[edit]

Centre Cousineau (also called Centre Cousineau Point-Zero since 2010) is located at the insersection of Cousineau Blvd and Montee Saint-Hubert. It is managed and owned by Enterprises Point-Zero, a company best known for its clothing lineup Point-Zero. The majors tenants are Jean Coutu, Metro Plus, Le SuperClub Vidéotron as well as a pool bar and a restaurant with a bar in it. From 1997 to 2010, the mall housed the public library of Saint-Hubert.

Centre Cousineau has its origins in the 1960s as a nameless strip mall that corresponds today to the section of the mall that faces Montee Saint-Hubert. In 1978, the strip mall was converted into the current indoor mall. It was first named Galeries Cousineau in 1978, then renamed Complexe Cousineau in 1988, and finally Centre Cousineau in 2006.

The mall was at its peak in the 1980s, with a total of 75 stores including anchors Rona, Greenberg, Sports Experts, Croteau, Jean Coutu and Metro.

In 2007, a fire destroyed La Crémière, a fast food and ice cream store, and the Jean-Coutu pharmacy, causing the permanent closure of the former and relocation of the latter. Lack of proper insurance coverage caused the mall to be partially barricaded for a number of years without renovation.

Since the mid-2000s, Centre Cousineau is in renovation, with some retailing chains such as La Source, Société des alcools du Québec and Petland having closed for a while.

In 2010 Entreprises Point Zero acquired the mall and makes significant improvements, including exterior facades.

Le Vieux-Longueuil[edit]

Centre Jacques-Cartier[edit]

Centre Jacques-Cartier [2] is a small shopping mall located in Le Vieux-Longueuil borough of Longueuil, Quebec. It is located at the intersection of Chemin Chambly and Ste-Foy Boulevard.

Since its opening in 1957, Centre Jacques-Cartier has been the oldest shopping centre in the South Shore, and perhaps the entire Montérégie. Like other early shopping centres in Quebec, it was developed by Ivanhoe, the real estate company of Sam Steinberg. In the year 1970, the mall went from strip mall to enclosed mall.

The mall is named after Ville Jacques-Cartier which was the name of the city at the time the mall was constructed. It was originally known simply as the Ville Jacques-Cartier shopping centre. After the municipality of Jacques-Cartier was dissolved, the mall took on the name of Place Jacques-Cartier throughout the 1970s and 1980s. It was renamed to its current moniker in the mid-1990s, presumably to avoid confusion with the attraction of the same name.

Some of its major tenants are IGA, Cinémas Guzzo, Dollarama, Village des Valeurs, Pharmaprix, and Rossy. The mall is made of approximately 45 stores occupying 212,930 square feet (19,782 m2) square feet of rentable space. It is operated by RioCan, and co-owned by RioCan and Kimco Realty Corporation of the United States.

Place Desormeaux[edit]

Place Desormeaux [3] is a shopping mall located in Longueuil, Quebec, Canada. Its major tenants are Super C, Walmart and to a lesser extent, Pharmaprix. The mall is made of approximately 45 stores occupying 240,000 square feet (22,000 m2) of rentable space. The mall has two banks: Banque de Montreal and Banque Nationale.

The mall first opened in 1971 with Bonimart, Steinberg and Zellers as anchors. At its opening, Place Desormeaux was the largest mall in the South Shore. Only Zellers had an outdoor entrance; Bonimart and Steinberg could only be accessed from inside the mall.

Bonimart closed in 1991. The space remained empty for the following 6 years. In 1997, Bonimart's former location was demolished and rebuilt with a complete new design to welcome the current Super C.

The Steinberg grocery chain went bankrupt in 1992. Unlike most Steinberg outlets, the location in Place Desormeaux was not sold and was closed instead. A small grocery chain Esposito took over the lease. Esposito in turn closed in 1996, opening the way for department store Winners to install itself in the mall. After operating for 10 years, Winners closed around late 2006/early 2007. The space is now home to a branch of the SAAQ and the Longueuil Local Employment Centre; both of which are part of the Government of Quebec.

After 40 years in operation, Zellers permanently closed its doors in June 2012. Walmart assumed the lease of the former Zellers store and opened its store in October of the same year.[1]

Like other shopping centres, Place Desormeaux has gone to different renovations at various times of its history. However, it has never increase in size since its inception.

The mall also used to house one branch of the Longueuil public library but has now been replaced by a recruiting office for the Canadian Forces.
