The mall had an Eaton's department store location as one of its anchors until the late 1990s when the chain collapsed. The closure of Eaton's occurred at a time when it was spearheading a planned expansion and renovation at Northland Village; eventually, the now-vacated department store was converted into several stores, including Future Shop, Winners and Fabricland, with a small second level of the mall added in this area along with a modest parkade. In the mid-2000s, a further expansion saw the addition of Home Outfitters and Best Buy, despite the latter being owned by, and offering much the same products, as Future Shop just down the mall. In the late 1990s, a high-end grocery market ("Dubaji's") survived in the mall for only a couple of years before being replaced by a succession of furniture operations. In 2010, soon after the announcement that Target Canada would be opening stores in Canada, an anchor tenant called Target Apparel opened in the former grocery location, though some branding called it Target Canada.
Like many Calgary malls, Northland Village had a Cineplex Odeon movie theatre for many years, before the trend became for theatres to vacate shopping centres for standalone facilities; Gold's Gym now occupies the former theatre site.
As of early 2010, the mall has a number of noticeable vacancies, with at least one shop having left the mall in favour of CrossIron Mills. The situation remains unchanged as of early 2013.
