Cloverdale Mall is a community shopping centre located in the Etobicoke area of Toronto, Canada, at 250 The East Mall (intersection of Dundas Street West and Highway 427). It opened in 1956 as an open-air shopping plaza on what was part of the Eatonville farm.

History[edit]

In the 1950s, Cloverdale Mall opened with two major anchors: Dominion and Morgan's. The centre of the plaza was an open-air concrete courtyard.

In the 1960s, following the purchase of Morgan's by the Hudsons Bay Company, the Morgan's store was converted into the Bay.

In the 1980s, Cloverdale Mall was converted into an enclosed mall and expanded.

In 2005, the Bay closed and Zellers moved into their space at the mall's north end. They expanded the lower/main level retail floor space but opted not to continue using the upper level of the Bay's former space, and it has been closed ever since. Winners and Kitchen Stuff Plus opened where the old Zellers outlet was at the mall's southern end. The mall underwent major renovations in 2006.

In 2008, the Dominion store was rebranded as Metro.

In September 2012 the Zellers store closed. Target opened on the bottom floor of the old store in March 2013.[2]

On January 15, 2015 Target announced it was withdrawing from the Canadian market and all its stores would be closed within 4-5 months. It is unknown who will fill the large space left in the mall by their departure.[3]
