White Oaks Mall is a shopping centre in London, Ontario, Canada. It is located at the southwest corner of Wellington Road and Bradley Avenue, just north of Highway 401.

History[edit]

The property on which the mall is now located was originally occupied by a small outdoor plaza, built in 1962.

In 1972, the plaza was completely rebuilt to make way for expansion. CPP Investment Board became the sole owner in 2010.

There are over 185 stores and services in the mall.[1]

Criticisms[edit]

The mall has received some criticism in recent years for forcing out independent stores. In 2009, several independent stores were denied a lease renewal. This included the gift-shop Durga, which had been a tenant with the mall for 26 years.[2] Similarly, Logo Sports was also denied a lease renewal in 2014 after 25 years at the mall. Logo was replaced by a competing franchise.[3]
