Centerpoint Mall (formerly Towne and Countrye Square) is a shopping mall located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the southwest corner of Steeles Avenue and Yonge Street in the former city of North York.[2]

History[edit]

Target at Centerpoint, opened in 2013 and closed in 2015

Centerpoint Mall was known as Towne and Countrye Square at its grand opening in the 1960s until the name change in 1990[3]. In 1966, the mall began with anchors Sayvette, Miracle Mart, and Super City Discount Foods. The Super City (later Loblaws) store was torn down and rebuilt as a Zellers. The Sayvette chain went defunct in 1975 and was converted to Woolco. Woolco closed and the store and was converted to Super Centre, then to Loblaws, then to No Frills. Miracle Mart was converted to Canadian Tire. The Zellers was closed in 2012 when the Zellers leasehold was purchased by Target; the location was closed for about a year before reopening as Target on March 19, 2013. In early 2015, all Target stores across Canada closed. A Lowe's home improvement store opened in the former Target store in late November 2016,[4] but it had closed by the end of February 2019.[5] A Canada Computers store has now been open since November 18, 2019 in the former Lowe's store.[6] With 635,121 square feet (59,004.7 m2) of retail space, it is one of the largest malls in Toronto.
