Plaza Baie d'UrféEdit
Plaza Baie d'Urfé is a small strip mall located in Baie d'Urfé, Quebec, Canada on 90 Morgan Street across from Quebec Autoroute 20. The shopping centre is currently owned by First Capital Realty and is anchored by Provigo. It opened in 1967 but was destroyed by a fire 1980. It was rebuilt and reopened in 1981.

Cavendish Mall (also known as Quartier Cavendish) is an indoor shopping centre in Côte Saint-Luc, Quebec, Canada. It includes a food court, multiplex movie theatre and a medical clinic: the CLSC Rene Cassin. A small highrise office-building is adjoined to the mall's southern half. Redeveloped in 2011, the mall was reduced to almost half its original size.
The mall experienced declining patronage over the past decade due to an aging population and limited access by car because of the city's failure to extend Cavendish Boulevard. Another serious blow was the closing of its two main anchors: Eaton's and Canadian Tire. Other notable closures included Caplan Duval, The Source, Gap, Consumers Distributing, Music World, Steinberg's, Miracle Mart, Staples and restaurants: Pumpernicks, Cattleman's and Katerina's. With the southern half of the mall vacant it had been considered a dead mall throughout the 2000s. In 2010, a large portion of the mall was demolished to make way for a new residential development.

Consolidation and revitalization
In August 2007 the owners announced a partial demolition to reduce the mall and consolidate its tenants. In August 2010 the remaining tenants were relocated to the north end of the mall. Demolition of the south end began October 2010.
In December 2010 demolition of 40% of mall was completed, effectively removing its southern end. The mall was reduced to 250,000 square feet (23,000 m2) of space (for let) with room for 55 stores and space for a small indoor children's play area. Previously the mall was approximately 400,000 square feet (37,161.2 m2). Extensive reconstruction was done in the old Caplan Duval site, where the CLSC Rene Cassin is now located. The former section of the demolished mall underwent construction of roads and sidewalks along with newly built townhouses and semi-detached homes. This included the sale of 39 lots for single-family homes.
Centre commercial Côte Saint-Luc is a small indoor shopping mall in Côte Saint-Luc, Quebec, Canada. Built in 1956 by Ivanhoe, it is now operated by First Capital Realty. The mall once served as Ivanhoe's head office.

The first anchors of the mall were a Steinberg & Zellers. Prohome eventually took place of the Zellers store in 1987. Steinberg went bankrupt in 1992, and the store was sold to The Oshawa Group as an IGA store. Prohome closed in 1997, and Rona Le Quincallier took its place. That store closed in 2005. A Blockbuster store opened in the late 1990s, and closed in 2011. Jean Coutu, which relocated within the mall, took part of the space, and a Caplan Duval opened in part of the former Rona space in 2010. Also, in the late 2000s, IGA's store was remodelled by counting its exterior. Since its inception, the mall has always had only two major anchors; the current ones are IGA & Jean Coutu (occupying the former Zellers/Prohome/Rona space).
The mall was constructed in 1977 at a cost of over $20 million, under the ownership of Oshawa Group. Going back as far back as the mid 1980s, it has been described as a white elephant due its extremely high vacancy rate and low shopper traffic. Even today, much space in the mall remains empty with for renting signs plastered on vacant shop windows.
The mall includes the chain stores Winners, HomeSense, Les Ailes de la Mode, Dollarama, Rubino and various independent discount and service shops. A second-run movie theatre (Dollar Cinema), a restaurant (Ernie & Ellie's), fitness gym and two video lottery gambling establishments are also situated within the mall. Government service offices of the SAAQ automobile licence bureau, Saint-Laurent Local Employment Center and Service Canada employment insurance center are also found within the mall, as well as the Decarie Medical Centre. The third floor is exclusively for rental office space.
|Opening date||October 4, 1966|
|No. of anchor tenants||5 (Cinémas Guzzo, Bureau En Gros, Super C, Winners, Canadian Tire)|
|No. of floors||1|
By 2011, in an effort to re-purpose much of the vacant shopping space into a more profitable venture, the mall owner, Canpro Investments Ltd., moved ahead with a project to convert more than a fifth of the 486,000 square foot mall's retail space into a medical centre (spanning 3 floors) with room for doctors' offices. The construction and renovation cost was estimated at the time between $10-million to $15-million and was started before any interested parties came forward or signed any leases; in essence a built-it-and-they-will-come strategy. The late David Azrieli, former head of Canpro, was quoted as saying "I'm willing to sign off that by August 2012 it will be ready and occupied." After a slow start, by 2017, the medical center had over 20 tenants with 30,000 square feet still available to lease. The space currently includes a walk in clinic, various specialists and doctor's offices.

Les Jardins Dorval (originally called Dorval Gardens in English) is a shopping mall in the suburb of Dorval, in Montreal, Quebec, located on Dorval Avenue near Autoroute 20. It is the oldest shopping centre in the West Island and the fourth in Montreal after Norgate, Village Champlain and Le Boulevard. Jardins Dorval was built in 1954 by the Ivanhoe Corporation which remained its owner and manager until 2000. It is currently managed by CentreCorp Management Services Ltd. Anchor stores are Walmart, Hudson's Bay and Maxi.
Les Jardins Dorval was originally built as a large L-shaped strip mall which opened in 1954 under the name "Dorval Gardens" with 35 stores. Anchor stores in 1954 were Morgan's department store and Steinberg's supermarket. Steinberg's and most of the original 35 tenants opened on April 7. A minority of tenants opened at slightly later dates including Morgan's which inaugurated on April 29.
Morgan's added a second floor to its store on August 28, 1961. The Morgan's store was destroyed by a major fire in April 1969 despite efforts by firemen from the cities of Dorval, Lachine, Lasalle, Pointe-Claire and Dollard-des-Ormeaux to save the store. It was rebuilt afterwards and reopened in March 1970 after occupying a temporary location on Dorval Avenue during the reconstruction. It was rebranded as The Bay on June 19, 1972.
In the 1970s, Les Jardins Dorval was surrounded with glass (save for Steinberg and The Bay). In 1985, the mall was expanded into its current layout, doubling its number of stores: the original parts of the mall correspond to what is to the south or west of the enclosed walkway, including the spaces currently occupied by Maxi and Hudson's Bay; areas to the east or north of the walkway were added. These additions included a Pascal hardware store, which relocated from a nearby strip mall.
The Pascal store was closed and emptied in 1991, before reopening as Zellers on October 8, 1992. Zellers closed its doors on January 22, 2012. Walmart assumed the lease and remodelled the store before opening it to the public in September 2012. This location was not one of the 39 Zellers stores that Walmart Canada acquired from Target Canada at a similar time.
In mid-1992, the Steinberg's supermarket became a Provigo despite the presence at the time of another grocery store with the same banner in the adjacent strip mall (located on 960 Herron Road). By late 1992, the Provigo at Jardins Dorval had been rebranded to its sister chain Maxi which remains to this day.
A Dollarama operated for a number of years before closing in late 2009. After a one-year absence, Dollarama returned to the mall in the space of Pharmaprix which itself has relocated to Dollarama's former space.
Sports Experts returned to the mall, opening November 1, 2012 and occupying the same space it did in the 2000s (formerly Cohoes in the 1990s and early 2000s).
Le Boulevard is a small indoor shopping centre at the corner of Jean-Talon East and Pie-IX Boulevard in Montreal. The mall was officially inaugurated on September 29, 1953 with 32 stores. It was the third shopping centre built in the Montreal area, preceded by Norgate and Village Champlain. Le Boulevard was originally a strip mall but was transformed into an indoor shopping centre in the 1970s.
Le Boulevard is built in the shape of a L and is composed of 70 stores. Former The Bay store (originally Morgan's) and Metro Plus (originally Steinberg's) each border a side of the mall, with Canadian Tire (formerly Pascal's) being in the middle. Geographically, Le Boulevard is situated partly in the Saint-Michel neighbourhood and partly in the former city of Saint-Leonard. The mall is just a block north of the Rosemont neighbourhood.
Le Boulevard is managed by Crofton Moore. The mall underwent extensive renovations in the 2000s. New tenants in the revitalized centre include Urban Planet, Dollarama, La Senza, Tim Hortons, Jean Coutu, Lunetterie New Look, and others. Longtime tenants of the mall include the Royal Bank of Canada.
Comparison of anchor spaces:
|Morgan's||The Bay (closed in September 2018)|
A small Zellers store was in the Boulevard shopping centre from about 1955 until 1976. It directly touched the north side of the Morgan/Bay store. After Zellers closed, The Bay expanded into the former space of Zellers and merged it into its own store.
Today, the old Zellers space can be recognized as the section of the vacant Bay store that had one floor (in contrast to the original section of The Bay which had 2 floors).[a] The basement of The Bay, which was closed to the public in 2011, was also part of this defunct Zellers store.

Carrefour de La Pointe is small indoor mall and one of the few enclosed malls in Montreal's Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles borough. It first opened on August 26, 1976 with Steinberg and Zellers as anchors. By 1981, the mall was sold to First City & ABRIM, then ABRIM & SITQ in 1990, later Ivanhoé Cambridge and then to its current owners Creccal Placements Ltée in 2004. By 1992, Steinberg went bankrupt and was sold to Metro Inc. and the company converted the store to a Metro. Years later, the Metro store was converted to its sister brand, Super C. By June 2012, Zellers closed down, and was replaced by the current Walmart in October 2012.
The mall also has minor tenants such as Reitmans, National Bank, Jean Coutu & Dollarama, as well as two in-mall restaurants: Prince d'Orient and Montaza. There are also free-standing SAQ Sélection & Tim Hortons buildings.

Carrefour Langelier is a small indoor shopping mall located in the St. Léonard borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada on the corner of Langelier Blvd. & Jean-Talon Blvd. The major anchors are Walmart & Ciné Starz, and minor anchors such as TD Canada Trust, Jean Coutu & Dollarama.
The mall opened in 1970 as Centre Langelier with 50 tenants anchored by the Marché Union & Woolco. In the 1970s, the Marché Union was converted to Aliments Bonimart before being converted to Aliments Hypermarché and after IGA Boniprix; it eventually closed in the 1990s. In 1994, Walmart replaced Woolco. A standalone Burger King used to exist at the mall, but was closed in 2009 and demolished in 2011. By 2012, the Cinémas Guzzo theatre was sold to Ciné Starz. In October 2012, Walmart transitioned to a Walmart Supercentre, without an increase in size of its retail space.
Centre Domaine is small indoor shopping centre located in the Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada at the corner of Sherbrooke St. & Langelier Blvd., on Granby Av. It is a two-minute walk from the Langelier métro station and about 1 km from the nearby larger Place Versailles shopping centre. A shopping mall formerly managed by Cadillac Fairview, it is currently operated by First Capital Realty. The anchors are Metro Plus and Walmart Canada.
It opened on August 13, 1959 with 25 tenants anchored by Steinberg and Woolworth, and were shortly joined by Zellers and Reitmans. In November 1974, Centre Domaine was converted as an enclosed mall. It expanded by inaugurating on March 6, 1975 a Horizon department store.
Horizon was succeeded by Eaton's Bargain in 1979 and the original Zellers store in the mall closed in 1980. The latter was substituted by Rossy in 1981, while Eaton's Bargain closed in 1982. After an absence of 3 years, Zellers returned to the mall in 1983, this time as an anchor store, assuming the lease of the former Eaton's Bargain store. The new Zellers was slightly bigger than the Horizon/Eaton's store it replaced; coincidentally its Family Restaurant stood on a portion of the emplacement of the old Zellers that closed in 1980.
In the 1980s, Woolworth was losing ground in Quebec and the store in the mall was shut down. Its space has since been subdivided.
Centre Le Cavalier (defunct)Edit
Centre Le Cavalier was a shopping mall located in the LaSalle borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada located on Champlain Blvd., next to the Place LaSalle shopping centre. The major anchors were Maxi & Walmart.
The mall began in the 1970s with a Woolco, Wise & Dominion Stores. By the late 70s, Wise had pulled out of the mall and its space was divided between Canada Post's sorting office and 3 boutiques on the mall. By the 1980s, Dominion became Provigo. By 1992, Provigo became Héritage. In 1994, Wal-Mart took the former space of Woolco after Woolworth sold Woolco to Walmart. In 1995, Héritage was renamed Maxi. In the summer of 1999 the Maxi store in this mall was shuttered and used by Walmart as extra storage space. In 2002, Walmart closed and they relocated to a standalone location next to the Carrefour Angrignon shopping centre and the last stores were also closed. The mall was demolished in sections between 2002 and 2003. The former Walmart store was removed in the autumn of 2002 to be replaced by an IGA Extra store. Shortly thereafter, the former Provigo was demolished to allow for construction of condos. Canada Post and Scotiabank stayed in the mall right until the end in 2003. In the early 2000s space that had formerly been a Sunnys gas bar was cleared (upon demolition it was landscaped) and paved into new parking space to allow the vacant parking space adjacent to the Caisse Populaire to be redeveloped as a new Jean Coutu store.
Centre commercial Forest is a small shopping mall in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in the borough of Montréal-Nord. It is located on Pie-IX boulevard. The anchor was a Bureau en Gros (Staples). Others stores includes Pharmaprix, Dollarama, Rossy and a Yellow shoe source. There is a St-Hubert restaurant in the parking lot, at the eastern part of the mall. Originally a mall owned by Ivanhoe, it is now the property of RioCan.
Defunct grocery stores chain Steinberg originally built a supermarket on this land in December 1955. In September 1956, a strip mall anchored by Woolworth at the other end was added to form the Forest shopping centre, making this Steinberg one of the most profitable for the company. In early 1970s, the mall was enclosed.
In the 1980s, facing difficulties with others supermarket chains, the Steinberg became a Steinberg Super Marché, more akin to the 21st century supermarket. In 1992, when Steinberg went bankrupt, Provigo bought the store and after being a Provigo for a while, it was converted to Héritage (Provigo's former discount supermarket banner). After being Héritage, it became a Maxi.
Woolworth, which had survived the waves of closures of Woolworth stores in the 1980s, finally succumbed in 1994 when the chain folded in the country. Rossy replaced Woolworth.
When Loblaws (after having bought Maxi in 1998) opened a new Loblaws location south of the mall, the Maxi supermarket was closed and the space was taken by Bureau en Gros. Some years later, a Casa Grecque restaurant opened in a small part of the Bureau en Gros.
In spring 2011, due to Blockbuster financial difficulties, one third of all Blockbusters in Quebec were closed, including the location in the mall. The space formerly occupied has been taken by the Dollarama store.
Galeries Lachine is small indoor shopping centre located at the intersection of 32e Avenue & Rue Remembrance in Lachine. this enclosed shopping centre offers 45 units totalling 167,383 sq. ft featuring retailers such as Maxi, Pharmaprix, Dollarama, and Rossy.
Galeries Lachine opened in 1971 in the same year as did Place Newman and both malls were built and managed by Ivanhoe Corporation and Ivanhoé Cambridge until they were sold in September 2002 to RioCan. The original tenants of the mall were Steinberg and Miracle Mart (renamed simply to M in 1987).
Galeries Normandie is a small indoor shopping mall located in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada on the corner of De Salaberry Ave. & Quebec Autoroute 15. It opened .The major anchors are IGA Extra, Rossy & Bureau En Gros. Within the mall, there are standalone McDonald's, SAQ & Tim Hortons/Thai Express buildings.
The mall began on August 22, 1961 with Pascal, Steinberg, Dominion Stores, Woolworth, Zellers, Greenberg for a total of 31 tenants. In the 1980s, the Dominion Stores became Provigo. Pascal went bankrupted on May 16, 1991. Pascal's location was converted between mall space & Rossy, even though Pascal had a second floor (now office spaces). In 1990/91, the Steinberg became Xtra, the new discount supermarket division for the group. By 1992, Xtra was converted to IGA when Steinberg went bankrupt. Loblaws acquired Provigo in 1998, and Provigo closed in 2007. Provigo's vacant space became Baron Sports for a little while until the IGA moved to the former Provigo space and expanded the space to become the current IGA Extra. Later on, the former Steinberg store was divided to both a Bureau En Gros & Pharmaprix (which can only be accessed outdoor). By 2011, Blockbuster closed down.
Méga Centre Côte-VertuEdit
Méga Centre Côte-Vertu is a power centre located in Montreal, Quebec's St. Laurent borough at the corner of Côte-Vertu Blvd. & Bégin Street. The main anchors are Rona L'entrepôt, Michaels, Bureau En Gros, Economax and Walmart.
The mall began in the Spring 1973 as Le Bazar, an enclosed mall, with exactly 50 stores. Original anchors were Steinberg, Woolco, as well as a Pascal furniture store that had opened before the others in 1972.
A Simpsons liquidation centre was also in the mall in the 1980s. In the 1990s, it also housed a Toys "R" Us store. During the 2000s, the indoor mall format and Le Bazar name were both retired. Previously, there was also a Bikini Village warehouse and a Future Shop in the shopping centre.
Norgate shopping centre (French: Galeries Norgate) is a strip mall that opened its doors on December 5, 1950, in the then-suburb of Saint-Laurent, Quebec now a borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.The mall was designed by architect Max Kalman and built by the developer Maxwell Cummings. Construction began in 1949. It is the oldest shopping centre in Montreal. It is also one of the first major shopping centres in the province and the oldest strip mall in the country. It was expanded in 1956 and houses were built directly north of the shopping centre to form a residential district, known as Les Habitations Norgate, that was eventually removated in the 1970s.
Norgate is located between Décarie Boulevard and Saint-Germain Street as well as between rue Rochon and Côte-Vertu Boulevard fr:Boulevard de la Côte-Vertu. The bottom of the L coincides with rue Rochon, the short side of the bottom and the long leg of the L correspond with Décarie. The long part of the L sits in the middle of the parking lot, with loading docks along the back, and parking spaces all around, running parallel to Decarie. De la Côte-Vertu Boulevard. The shopping centre is L-shaped, fronting the street at the bottom of the L and its related short-side. The back and front of the L open onto parking lots. Across Décarie Boulevard from Norgate lies the Côte-Vertu Metro station and the Terminus Côte-Vertu Nord.

Place LaSalle was opened in the 1960s with a Steinberg, Miracle Mart and Greenberg as the main anchors. There was also an outparcel that was home to a Fina Service Centre (this would later become McDonald's and Yellow shoes). Along with the now-defunct Centre Le Cavalier, Place LaSalle was one of the first indoor malls in LaSalle.
Initially the mall was built as a 2 store unit (Miracle Mart and Steinbergs) with a Fina service centre outparcel (later McDonald's); the mall was added shortly after with a section going from the end of Miracle Mart towards Gagné street. In the early 1980s, the mall was extended towards the Steinberg store (Steinberg only gained mall access with this renovation). There was an attempt in 1988 to modernize the mall due to competition from other malls. This included a new entrance facing Champlain leading to an attempt at creating a food court. Around this time the former Greenberg space became Géant des Aubaines (it later became Dollarama)
In 1987, Miracle Mart was renamed as M. In 1991, in an effort to compete with Maxi, Héritage and Super C, the Steinberg was converted to Sélex, a discount supermarket. By 1992, when the Steinberg group went bankrupt, Sélex became a Metro, and the M store was closed. In 1994, a 12-screen Cineplex Odeon and a GoCart track took over the lease of M.
In the early 2000s, Hart replaced the GoCart track. Somewhat around the mid/late-2000s, the Metro store was converted as a Metro Plus. In May 2010, Metro Plus was converted to Super C and Pharmaprix was relocated to a standalone building, joining the McDonald's (which has since been demolished & rebuilt due to the classic look of the building), Tim Hortons & SAQ buildings. Since then, the mall has started to experience such a decline, making Place LaSalle a dead mall due to increased competition up against larger rival Carrefour Angrignon & smaller rival Place Newman. To ensure its death, lease renewals were refused by management, in favour of dividing the land between condominiums and the more profitable outdoor mall concept. In mid-October 2011, a National Bank of Canada opened next to the SAQ. Place LaSalle is currently under heavy renovation, but is still open. The new mall should open in Winter.
In 2011, Arcade Fire filmed parts of their music video for 'Sprawl II' inside Place LaSalle and its parking lot.

Place Newman is a small indoor shopping mall located in the LaSalle borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada on Dollard Ave. corner Newman Blvd. The major tenants are Maxi, Rossy, Bouclair Maison, Dollarama, and Winners. There is a standalone Wendy's restaurant location.
Place Newman is the sister mall of Galeries Lachine in nearby Lachine as both malls were built at the same time by Ivanhoe Corporation in 1971 and both malls were sold in September 2002 to RioCan. Place Newman's anchors from 1971 until 1992 were Steinberg and Zellers; the former went bankrupt in 1992 and the latter closed its Place Newman store circa 2002.
In mid-1992, Steinberg's became Provigo, which would in turn be converted into the current Maxi in late 1992. The store was remodelled, making the supermarket have an outdoor entrance for the first time in this mall.
The anchor space of Zellers was dismantled and is now the home of Rossy, Au Vieux Duluth and a few others.
Schools near by Place Newman are Saint Lawrence Academy Junior/Senior and Children's World.

Plaza Côte-des-Neiges is a mid-size two stories indoor mall located in the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is operated by Gestion Plaza Côte-des-Neiges. The Plaza has space for over 100 stores. They include a medical clinic, a dental clinic, daycare centre, a movie theatre, restaurants and many small independent businesses. The plaza was officially opened on October 3, 1968 with 68 stores anchored by Miracle Mart, Steinberg's and Wise.
In February 1985, Plaza Côtes-des-Neiges, which was already at the time a two-storey mall with 85 tenants and two adjacent office buildings, announced an expansion to add 46 more stores and a Canadian Tire. The renovation was finalized in October 1985 and gave the mall its current outdoor glass architecture. The mall owner had to reacquire to lease of Miracle Mart in order to find the necessary space for the expansion.
In August 1991, Zellers opened a new store at Plaza Côtes-des-Neiges. 20 years later, Walmart Canada (through Target Canada) acquired the lease from Zellers to open its own store in October 2012. Like Canadian Tire, Dollarama or any other store at Plaza Côtes-des-Neiges, Walmart can only accessed from inside the mall.
Village Champlain is located in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Montreal, at the corner of Sherbrooke Street East and Honoré-Beaugrand, adjacent to the Honoré-Beaugrand station. It broke ground on March 12, 1953 and opened on September 22, 1953. Anchor stores upon inauguration were Steinberg and Woolworth. The centre is located in the eponymous Village Champlain neighborhoud; a primarily residential area bordered by the streets Sherbrooke, Liebert, Hochelaga and Lepailleur.
Although a generic strip mall with fewer than 20 tenants, Village Champlain is notable for being one of the oldest shopping centres in Montreal, second only to Norgate. Its inauguration ceremony had been attended by high-profile business and political figures including Montreal mayor Camillien Houde, and the shopping centre could serve a population of up to 22,000 families at its opening. Today it includes well-known contemporary tenants like Jean Coutu, St-Hubert, Subway, M&M Food Market, Bulk Barn and particularly a Toronto Dominion Bank that has been there since 1953. The former spaces of Steinberg and Woolworth are now occupied respectively by a Dollar Max variety store and Bulk Barn.
Centre commercial Wilderton is a small indoor mall in the Côte-des-Neiges borough and bordering Outremont. It is located on Van Horne Avenue between Wilderton and Darlington Avenues. Its anchors are Metro, Dollarama and Pharmaprix.
The shopping centre was built by Steinberg in 1959 through Ivanhoe. It opened with 25 stores including anchors Steinberg and Woolworth. In 1970, Wilderton was converted from a strip mall to an indoor one. Steinberg rebranded as Metro in 1992. The mall was acquired by First Capital Realty in 2002.
In 2016, First Capital announced plans to demolish the property and redeveloped it into a mixed-use residential and commercial project. The new complex will continue with the Wilderton namesake.
The western portion of the mall, which housed the Metro grocery store and the Royal Bank, was demolished circa 2019. As part of the first phase of Wilderton's transformation, a brand new building was built on the mall's parking for the Royal Bank, Tim Hortons and several other tenants. Another two-story building is currently under construction for Metro, Pharmaprix, SAQ, and residences for seniors.
Centre Terrarium (formerly Terrarium Pointe-Claire until 1997) is as strip mall with two sectors located in Pointe-Claire, Quebec. Popular stores include Walmart, The Home Depot, Domino's Pizza, L'Equipeur, Tim Hortons, Pier 1 Imports, Pennington's and Subway. It also houses a free-standing TD Canada Trust.
The mall began in the 1970s with a Kmart (which closed in 1983 and later became Zellers in the fall of 1984,) a CIBC and a Dominion supermarket (which pulled out of the mall in 1983 even though the space had remained empty until Famous Players moved to that space). It was Pointe Claire's third-largest indoor shopping mall behind Fairview Pointe-Claire and Plaza Pointe-Claire until the indoor space was converted to sports stores in 2005. When it was an indoor shopping mall, most stores, such as Domino's Pizza and CIBC were moved to Complexe Pointe-Claire) or other nearby locations. Other tenants such as Famous Players, L'Ile du Dollar, Coiffure Maxicolor and Talons were closed in the indoor mall. Around 2010, Bernard Trottier Sports closed down, and Dollarama took its vacant space the following year. The Zellers store closed in 2013 and Target took over its space. The Target store closed in 2015, and Walmart took over its space in 2016.

Complexe Pointe Claire is one of the West Island's largest strip malls, located in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada, on Saint-Jean Boulevard at the Quebec Autoroute 40. Owned by Westcliff, the major anchors of this mall are Maxi & Cie, Marshalls, Chapters and Toys "R" Us. Restaurants are Subway, La Cage aux Sports, Sushi Shop and Le Chocolat Belge, as well as a McKibbins pub to name a few.
The mall opened in 1987 with Maxi, Litrerie Etc. and Toys "R" Us as anchors. Toys "R" Us actually opened on October 17, 1986 and was the chain's second store in the Montreal area after the Brossard location. Maxi in Pointe Claire was the chain's sixth store and its biggest at the time.
A a six-screen Cineplex Odeon theatre opened in 1988. By 1995, Litrerie Etc. and Consumers Distributing were both closed. Future Shop and Globo Shoes shortly took over the former spots. The following year, Red Lobster (which withdrew from Quebec at the time) and the National Bank of Canada were closed; the latter would reappear during the time when Maxi & Cie replaced Maxi in 1997. The Nature Pet Centre was relocated to Red Lobster's old location; welcoming the old Nature Pet Centre site to house the current Chapters. A Dic Ann's restaurant operated within the mall, but closed down in 1999. The former Dic Ann's space is now Reitmans, which also occupies the former space of the National Bank. Around 2002, CIBC and the Nature Pet Centre replaced the old Cineplex Odeon site (which closed in 2001); causing closure of the National Bank inside the Maxi & Cie store and the current Nature Pet Centre entrance was where it housed Dollar ou Deux. The old Nature Pet Centre location became a J. Schreters store, which also in turn, closed. Today, Addition Elle is located at the former Red Lobster site. Cohoes went bankrupt in 2005, and that store had been there since the mall's inception. A McKibbins takes the former Cohoes space. Best Buy closed the Future Shop in 2015. It was replaced by Marshalls in 2017.
Plaza Pointe-Claire is an indoor shopping centre in Pointe-Claire, Quebec (a suburb of Montreal). It is located on 269 St. Jean Boulevard near Autoroute 20. The mall was originally known as the Pointe-Claire shopping centre. Its first anchor store, Steinberg super market opened its doors on September 19, 1957. After the rest of the mall was completed, the inauguration was held on October 16, 1958, making it the first shopping centre in Pointe-Claire.
