Southgate Centre is a shopping centre located in south Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, covering just under 90,000 square metres. It contains 165 retailers including Hudson's Bay, Aritzia, Zara, Michael Kors, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Coach, Inc., Browns Shoes and Edmonton's only Restoration Hardware and Crate & Barrel. Apple opened a second store in Edmonton at Southgate Centre on May 28, 2010, and Edmonton's first LEGO store opened in June 2013. The Centre is located adjacent to Whitemud Drive and 111 Street, and is located across from a major transit bus station and the Southgate LRT Station.
Following major expansion, the mall marked its reopening in August 2009, including a new food court and added parking. These expansions included 40 new stores under a new two-level parking deck and a station on the expansion of the Edmonton Light Rail Transit system, whose opening ceremony was April 24, 2010. An Edmonton Public Library branch operated until 2002, when it relocated to nearby Whitemud Crossing.

History and anniversary
On August 12, 2010, Southgate celebrated the 40th anniversary of its opening, When the centre opened with Woodwards, Woodwards Food Floor and The Bay it was at the time the largest shopping centre west of Toronto and the first centre built in Alberta that housed two anchor department stores. In 1993, Woodward's went bankrupt; its space was converted to Eaton's, which left Heritage Mall. In addition, Safeway occupied the food floor of the former Woodward's. By 1999, Eaton's went bankrupt and its space became a Sears the following year, also relocating from the nearby Heritage Mall, which was subsequently decommissioned, demolished, and converted into a mixed-use development called Century Park.
