It was opened in 1956 as Dixie Plaza, and was renamed Dixie Outlet Mall in the late 1980s after significant expansion and renovations took place. The name Dixie Plaza was adopted by another property in the 1980s. It was the first mall of its kind in Mississauga (then known as Toronto Township, or specifically, Lakeview) and is the oldest still in operation.

Established in 1976, the Fantastic Flea Market is the oldest flea market in Toronto. Located in the basement of the Dixie Outlet Mall, the flea market offers a diverse collection of items such as clothing, jewellery, video games, antiques and memorabilia, while also providing personal services like electronic and watch repairs.

In 1978, the Sayvette store was converted into a Knob Hill Farms. A new Burger King was added that year, and was scheduled to be a training centre for the chain's employees.

Dixie Outlet Mall is "100% Bullfrog Powered", meaning that it runs directly on clean and renewable electricity generated by wind and hydroelectric sources. Dixie Outlet Mall also provides many recycling stations throughout the mall. It was awarded the Gold Award by the Recycling Council of Ontario in 2010 for its efforts.
