Deerfoot Mall is an enclosed shopping centre located in northeast Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It opened in 1981, just east of Deerfoot Trail (Highway 2) on 64th Avenue NE. The 623,000 square foot mall, owned by Shape Properties, sits on a 79 acre site.[1]

History[edit]

Upon its opening, the mall's anchor tenants were Woolco, Canada Safeway, and The Bay. The mall features 80 retailers, including two anchor stores: Winners and Walmart. The mall is now considered to be "outlet mall," and has billed itself as "Western Canada's only enclosed outlet mall."[2]

A plan announced in September 2013 would convert the enclosed mall into an open air regional centre, and add over 500,000 additional square feet of retail space.[3] It was renamed Deerfoot City.

Anchors & large format[edit]

  • Winners (25,873 sq.ft)
  • Walmart is a standalone store located south of the main building.

Former anchor[edit]

  • Sears Canada (167,635 sq.ft) – Anchor (formerly The Bay; closed fall 2012; currently vacant)
