Cataraqui Town Centre opened in September, 1982 as a two level mall with Simpsons and Zellers department stores and a Loblaws supermarket. Simpsons was rebranded as The Bay (another brand within the same chain, the Hudson's Bay Company) in 1986. In September 1999, Sears relocated from the Kingston Centre to a new store at Cataraqui which anchored a new addition. Along with the new addition came a revamping of the mall's interior, and the relocation of the escalators and food court. Loblaws moved across the street in 2001, and their former space was converted to a new expanded food court, Shoppers Drug Mart, and a Sport Chek store. Zellers was replaced with Target in 2013; the latter closed in 2015.
