The Station Mall in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, is the second largest shopping mall in Northern Ontario, trailing just behind the New Sudbury Centre in Greater Sudbury. With 86 stores and 555,000 square feet (51,600 m2) of retail space, on one level [1]. Built in 1973, the mall has since undergone two major expansions. Its major tenants include Sears, Walmart and the 50,000 square feet (4,600 m2) Galaxy Cinemas movie theatre complex. The mall is located on the waterfront in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, and is roughly five minutes away from the Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge to the United States. The Sault Ste. Marie railway station is located in the mall parking lot.

History[edit]

Station Mall opened in October 1973 with 284,000 square feet of retail space and 70 tenants. It underwent two expansions in 16 years, in 1981 and 1989, adding more than 200,000 square feet of additional retail space.[1] In 2000, the 50,000-square-foot Galaxy Entertainment Complex was opened on the waterfront side of the mall. The Complex includes a 12-screen, 2,400 seat movie theatre.[2] The mall underwent a major renovation project, adding large format stores and revamping the interior. 2011 saw a number of smaller stores combined for a new Sport Chek location. The small former Zellers location reopened in 2012 as a small Walmart Supercentre. On November 25, 2013, Galaxy Cinemas downsized from 12 screens to 7 screens in order to make room for H&M. [3]
