History[edit]

The former Sears at the Upper Canada Mall

Construction of the mall began in 1973. It opened in 1974 with 55 stores, two of which were the department store anchors Zellers (later Target) and Sears as well as a Dominion Supermarket. [1][2], as well as a Kmart outparcel which became a Sears Home Store in 1999.

An Eaton's department store was added in the early 1990s. It later became a Sears location. New stores opened in November 2007.

A $60 million renovation was completed in 2008 adding 148,000 square feet to include a new 950 seat food court and 25 new fashion retailers including Forever 21, Zara, Victoria's Secret, Hollister Co., Browns, Michael Kors, Apple Store, Microsoft Store, H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Disney Store.[citation needed] During the expansion and redevelopment, the Toys "R" Us store expanded, and eventually became the largest Toys "R" Us store in Canada.
