St. Vital Shopping Centre is a retail shopping mall located at 1225 St. Mary's Road, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The mall opened 17 October 1979 and is located by the intersection of St. Mary's Road and Bishop Grandin Boulevard.[1] It opened with Eaton's, The Bay, and Woolco as anchor tenants.[2] The mall was renovated in 1986, 1998, and 2013.[1]

The building currently has seven anchor tenants and 160 smaller stores, and has a gross leasable area of 926,310 square feet (86,057 m2) including the freestanding Safeway store, CIBC, Montana's Cookhouse, McDonald's, Old Navy, and Earls.[3] St. Vital Centre is owned by the Ontario Pension Board and managed by 20 VIC Management Inc.[3]

The mall has 4,661 parking spaces, as well as a city transit bus depot positioned close to an entrance.[1][4] As of 2001, the mall serves approximately 53,825 households within a 5 kilometre radius, with an average household income of $56,925.[2] The location sees approximately 178,000 pedestrians per week.[1]

The mall recycles plastics and aluminum in their food court, and paper in their offices, and recycles 4,315 metric tons (4,247 long tons; 4,756 short tons) of cardboard every year.[5]

In 2012, the mall underwent a $10 million renovation, which was completed in November 2012. The renovation included new flooring, ceilings, wall coverings and energy efficient lighting.[6]
