History[edit]

Originally opened in 1974, the mall was expanded in 1986. In 1988, further expansion added a two-level retail wing to the north side. In late 1999, the mall grew again to include a new 3-level department store (planned as Eaton's but ultimately opened as Sears), approximately 20 retailers, and a two-level parkade. The theatre complex was closed at this time and retrofitted into retail space. The most recent expansion was completed in 2009.

In 2012, it became the first mall to offer private visits with Santa Claus to children with autism.[1]
