CentrO is a shopping mall in Oberhausen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It forms part of a large commercial development called the Neue Mitte ("new center").

CentrO is Germany's largest shopping mall. The development was rather controversial, with neighbouring municipalities opposing the size and scope of the project, fearing a loss of sales to businesses in their city centers.[1]
