Cambridge Centre is a shopping mall in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, located at 355 Hespeler Road. In the 1980s, Hespeler Road became the city's major commercial area, and is now known as the Highway 24/Hespeler Road Commercial District.[3]

History[edit]

Cambridge Centre opened in 1996, on a site previously occupied by the John Galt Centre. A Right House department store had been located in the John Galt Centre. The original anchors of the mall were Miracle Mart (at the current vacant Target store site) and Miracle Food Mart (at the current H&M store site).

The mall underwent further expansion in 2002, which added several department stores, and a National Hockey League-sized ice rink known as the Cambridge Ice Centre. Since 1996, $100 million has been invested in the enhancement of Cambridge Centre.[4]

Community involvement[edit]

Cambridge Centre supports charities in the Waterloo Region, with a Community Kiosk that is available free of charge to registered local charities.[4]
