Cedarbrae Mall Wikipedia
The mall opened in 1962 as a plaza, and was anchored by a Woolworth's, a Steinberg's and a Simpsons. Renovations to Cedarbrae Mall would soon replace the original anchors, and bring a Zellers store, as well as additional retail space to the east and west sides of the mall. A No Frills, Canadian Tire, Toys "R" Us, as well as a renovated food court area and both an upper and lower floor were the next few major events for the mall.
In 2012, the Zellers store was acquired by Target, but later sold to Walmart Canada and opened as Walmart in late 2012. A Jysk store also opened around this time, to the west of No Frills, which is not part of the actual mall.
During mid-2013, the mall went through major renovations, done by Cinric Construction, which would include the full replacement of the interior and exterior lighting, automatic and energy efficient washrooms, floor and ceiling finishes, a repaved parking lot, an enhanced food court, and the rebranding of the mall. By late 2013, most of the work was completed, with the exception of final touches such as carpets and mall seating. The food court, named Food Emporium, finished renovations slightly later.
On December 9, 2008, a 21-year-old victim was taken to hospital after he received a knife wound to the neck at around 4:15 pm. The suspect, 21-year-old Jamaal Williams was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon, and aggravated assault.
Notable stores inside the shopping mall include Walmart (formerly Zellers and Simpsons respectively), Canadian Tire, No Frills (formerly Steinberg's, then Dominion, then Loblaws), and Dollarama. Notable stores and retailers outside the shopping mall include The Beer Store, LCBO, Burger King, the CAA, and Jysk.
In August 1996, the mall was acquired by the Centrefund Realty Corporation. At the time of purchase, Centrefund announced it would begin expansion and renovation with a total redevelopment budget of approximately CDN$20 million. The Canadian portion of Centrefund changed its name to First Capital Corporation in 2001.
