Agincourt Mall is a shopping mall located at the northwest corner of Kennedy Road and Sheppard Avenue, in the Tam O'Shanter – Sullivan neighbourhood of Scarborough, in northeastern Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is named for the adjacent historic village and current Toronto neighbourhood of Agincourt.

Anchors and majors[edit]

Original stores[edit]

Woolco[2] and Loblaws were the original anchors, with the grocery store opening October 26, 1966, before the rest of the mall.[3]

Phase 2 of the mall opened Wednesday, November 23, 1966 at 10 am; given the pre-Christmas date, Santa Claus attended, handing out candy canes.[4]

Scarborough Public Library operated a small branch (Agincourt Neighbourhood Library) in the mall since 1967,[5] but it was relocated in 1991 to a new building at 155 Bonis Avenue (as Agincourt District) in behind the mall and run by Toronto Public Library since 1998.

2011 fire[edit]

On 2011, Agincourt Mall was on fire, causing shoppers to run out of the mall quickly, no one was hurt or injured. The mall was surrounded by fire trucks trying to put out the fire on the mall's roof.
