Carrefour de la Rive-Sud

Carrefour de la Rive-Sud is a power centre inaugurated in 2002 in Boucherville, Quebec at the corner of highways 20 and 30. It is 312,229 square feet (29,007.0 m2) and managed by Centrecorp of Markham, Ontario.

Other tenants include Sports Experts, Tommy Hilfiger, Bouclair, L'Equipeur and Archambault. Among popular boutiques, there is Reitmans, BCBG Maxazria, Aldo and Garage. Although Carrefour de la Rive-Sud does occupy a large territory, its number of tenants is no more than 60.

Carrefour de la Rive Sud houses one of the three Adidas warehouse stores in Quebec that sells the Adidas Performance collection, Adidas' sub-brand which specializes in sport clothes and running shoes.

Along with Quartier DIX30 in Brossard, Carrefour de la Rive Sud constitute the major unenclosed malls of Greater Longueuil, although smaller power centers can be found in the cities of Longueuil and Saint-Bruno.

Promenades Montarville

Promenades Montarville is one of the smallest indoor malls in Greater Longueuil. It is situated at the corner of de Montarville and de Mortagne boulevards in the city of Boucherville. It was opened in 1979 and has approximately 45 tenants.

The majors tenants are Provigo, Canadian Tire, Go Sport and Jean Coutu. Many of the tenants are small business, but the mall also has a number of retailing chains such as Dollarama, La Source, Greiche & Scaff, Ardène, Le Naturiste and Panda. The bank in the mall is Banque de Montreal (BMO) and its restaurants are Tim Hortons and Subway.

Promenades Montarville is less than 5 km (3 miles) away from the much larger (but not enclosed) Carrefour de le Rive-Sud.


Champlain Mall

Place Portobello

Zellers Brossard, QC 2 (8272612737)
Former Zellers at Place Portobello, one of the largest stores in the province for that retailer.

Place Portobello is a shopping mall located in Brossard, Quebec along Taschereau Boulevard near the Autoroute 10-Taschereau Interchange. Some major tenants include Linen Chest, Maxi and Jean Coutu. Since March 2011, Place Portobello is operated by First Capital Realty. Place Portobello was previously operated by Cogir Management Corporation. Although it no longer manages the mall, Cogir still has its corporate headquarters in the office building of Place Portobello. There is a building in the middle of the mall with second and third floors serving as commercial office spaces. There is a nearby Reno-Depot hardware store which is a tenant of Place Portobello despite not sharing any indoor or outdoor boundary with the rest of the mall.

It inaugurated on September 21, 1966 with Woolco, Dominion and 20 stores. It expanded with the opening of new anchor Beaver Lumber on May 1, 1974 and the addition of new stores in 1975.

Dominion became Provigo in 1981. Beaver Lumber closed on December 24, 1987 and reopened in February 1988 as a Brico Centre hardware store.

In 1991, Provigo rebranded to the current Maxi. It was the second supermarket to carry the Maxi banner in the South Shore after the location at Chambly Road in Longueuil (which is the first store of this retail chain).

Walmart acquired the Woolco location in 1994. Walmart left the mall in January 2008 to relocate to a larger stand alone building in Quartier DIX30. It was replaced by Zellers from December 2008 to December 2012. The Zellers was renovated and converted into a Target store, which opened its doors to the public on September 17, 2013, which later closed in 2015. The former Target is now a Renaissance, a Buffet des Continents, a Surplus RD, a Party Mania and a Klub Athletik.

Quartier DIX30


Greenfield Park

5000 Taschereau

5000 Taschereau is a shopping mall located in the borough of Greenfield Park, Quebec, Canada located on Taschereau Boulevard, near Greenfield Park's borough limit with neighbouring Brossard. It inaugurated around the same time as its original tenant Super Carnaval which opened on January 23, 1985. From the late 1980s and up until 2010, the mall was called Mail Carnaval and was named after Super Carnaval (today Super C).

Mail Carnaval was once an indoor shopping centre. A Jean Coutu pharmacy was one of the first tenants in the 1980s, but soon moved out. Beginning in December 1988, Mail Carnaval featured a mini indoor attraction park open every week-ends in the heart of the mall. Tenants that once made business at Mail Carnaval include a Do it Center hardware store, American fitness chain Gold's Gym, a Famous Players movie theatre, the National Bank of Canada and a Zellers department store. For a number of years and up until 2009, Mail Carnaval was the headquarters of fitness chain Nautilus Plus which was located right next to the branch of competitor Energie Cardio. However, Nautilus Plus never operated an actual branch in the mall.

As of 2002, Mail Carnaval gradually began losing its small tenants and was on its way to become a dead mall. In the summer of 2007, the last small tenants left the mall. The mall's indoor corridor was demolished in 2009 and turned into a parking lot for Super C. Shortly after Zellers closed in May 2010, the name of the mall was changed from Mail Carnaval to 5000 Taschereau. As of 2018, only Super C, Energie Cardio, Michaels and a relocated L'Equipeur store from nearby Place Greenfield Park are in operation at 5000 Taschereau. Due to the demolition of the indoor mall section in 2009, Super C's building is physically separated from the rest of the tenants.

Galeries Taschereau

Galeries Taschereau is a strip mall that was an enclosed mall until 2002. Previously managed by Cambridge Leaseholds, it is now operated by Sandalwood Management Canada, a subsidiary of Sandalwood Management of Austin, Texas. The mall served as the city council of the city of Greenfield Park until the late 1990s.

The major tenants are Fruiterie 440, Hart, L'Aubainerie, Marché du Store, and warehouses of both Pennington and Taylor. Joining them are two are restaurants (Amir and Subway), a Buzzfit Gym as well as a few smaller enterprises including a hairdresser (P&J Coiffure) and a cellular phone repair enterprise (UBreakIFix).

Galeries Taschereau was anchored at its opening in late 1973 by A&P Canada, Greenberg and Horizon. In early 1979, Eaton's changed the vocation of the Horizon location by turning it into a Foyerama furniture store. An expansion in 1983 increased the size of the mall to 220 000 square feet and tripled its number of tenants to 60 anchors and shops including a new Zellers store which replaced the Eaton's (Foyerama) store. It was a significantly smaller than typical Zellers stores and it closed in 1987. Hart, Le Chateau warehouse occupy and a recently vacated Village des Valeurs occupy the space where this Zellers stood. It had no connection to the Zellers store that later opened in 1990 at Mail Carnaval.

In February 2020, Village des Valeurs left its location at Galeries Tachereau it had occupied since 1991, to relocate to other side the street on Auguste Avenue. Other past tenants of mall include Provigo (which replaced A&P in 1984 and is now the Fruiterie 440), Future Shop, Bouclair and Bank of Montreal.

Place Greenfield Park

Place Greenfield Park (also called Riocan Greenfield Park) is a large strip mall located in Greenfield Park, Quebec. It is located on Taschereau Boulevard, extending from Gladstone Street to Margaret Street. It is owned and operated by RioCan. Place Greenfield was once the first enclosed shopping centre in the South Shore but was converted to the strip format in 2001 after its remaining shops closed. For 40 years, the shopping centre was under the management of Ivanhoe Corporation (today Ivanhoe Cambridge). In 2002, Ivanhoe Cambridge sold the mall to Riocan.

It started in 1962 with only a Steinberg's supermarket and a Woodward Steinberg (Miracle Mart) department store. A Pascal's hardware store was added in the first half of 1964. The mall itself and its shops opened in 1965 with, among others, anchor tenant Wise.

Toyville, a large-sized toy retailer, inaugurated on October 22, 1981. The store was located on the end side of the shopping center that intersects Gladstone Avenue. It closed on December 29, 1990. Its space was occupied by a Club Biz office supply store from October 29, 1992 until the chain ceased operations in early 1996. Like the rest of Club Biz locations, the lease was acquired by Bureau en Gros which opened its Place Greenfield Park store on June 1, 1996.

Leon's opened a store on January 6, 1988. It replaced the Miracle Mart store that had closed in 1986. In October 2007, Leon's left its location in the mall and moved to the intersection of Chambly Road and Autoroute 30 in the St-Hubert borough of Longueuil. After being a Ha Bay furniture store for much of the 2010s, the space was subdivided in 2017 by Jysk, Univers Kids Dépôt and a portion of Giant Tiger. Jysk opened on June 3, 2017. Univers Kids Dépôt, a second-hand shop which launched its very first store, took 5000 square of the former Leon's/Ha Bay emplacement. Giant Tiger inaugurated on November 4, 2017.

Pascal closed in 1991. Goineau-Bousquet, a hardware retailer from Laval, opened in the former Pascal space in early 1992. Goineau-Bousquet filed for bankruptcy protection on June 3, 1996 and, in the process, announced the closing of its Greenfield Park location, effective for the end of July. In 1998, Cinémas Guzzo took the space to open what was, at the time, the biggest movie theater in Quebec history.

In mid-1992, the Steinberg grocery store rebranded as Provigo which in turn was converted to the current Maxi within the year.

Winners opened on August 23, 1995 its first store in Greater Longueuil and its sixth in the province. At 23 000 square feet, it replaced the majority of the Wise store which had closed only months before.


Centre Cousineau

Centre Cousineau (also called Centre Cousineau Point-Zero since 2010) is located at the intersection of Cousineau Blvd and Montee Saint-Hubert. It is managed and owned by Enterprises Point-Zero, a company best known for its clothing lineup Point-Zero. The major anchor tenants are Jean Coutu, Metro Plus and Le SuperClub Vidéotron. From 1997 to 2010, the mall housed the public library of Saint-Hubert.

Centre Cousineau has its origins in the 1960s as a nameless strip mall that corresponds today to the section of the mall that faces Montee Saint-Hubert. In 1978, the strip mall was converted into the current indoor mall. It was first named Galeries Cousineau in 1978, then renamed Complexe Cousineau in 1987, and finally Centre Cousineau in 2006.

The mall was at its peak in the 1980s, with a total of 75 stores including anchors Rona, Greenberg, Sports Experts, Croteau, Jean Coutu and Metro. Its office building was home to a CLSC and many Saint-Hubert municipal services.

Centre Cousineau began to lose ground in the 1990s. By the mid-2000s, it had all but been turned into a dead mall, with retailing chains such as La Source, Société des alcools du Québec and Petland having closed in addition to the many small businesses. To add to the injury, a fire in 2007 destroyed La Crémière, a fast food and ice cream store, and the Jean-Coutu pharmacy, causing the permanent closure of the former and relocation of the latter. Lack of proper insurance coverage caused the mall to be partially barricaded for a number of years without renovation.

In 2009, Entreprises Point Zero acquired Centre Cousineau. It made significant improvements to the anchor stores, including renovating extensively their exterior facades. The rest of the centre however continued to be deserted. As of late September 2018, the few indoors tenants that were left relocated to the outdoor section on Montee Saint-Hubert. The mall's doors have all been permanently locked with the lights turned off. Only its three anchor stores on Cousineau Blvd. and a handful of small tenants on the strip mall section facing Montee Saint-Hubert survive.

Le Vieux-Longueuil

Centre Jacques-Cartier

Centre Jacques-Cartier is a small shopping mall located in Le Vieux-Longueuil borough of Longueuil, Quebec. It is located at the intersection of Chambly Road and Ste-Foy Boulevard. Some of its current major tenants are IGA, Cinémas Guzzo, Village des Valeurs, Pharmaprix and Rossy. The mall is made of approximately 45 stores occupying 212,930 sq ft (19,782 m2) square feet of rentable space.

Since its opening on August 23, 1957, Centre Jacques-Cartier has been the oldest shopping centre in the South Shore. Like other early shopping centres in Quebec, it was developed by Ivanhoe, the real estate company of Sam Steinberg. Its original anchors in 1957 were Steinberg's, Wise, Woolworth's and United Stores. In the year 1970, the mall went from strip mall to enclosed mall.

The mall is named after Ville Jacques-Cartier which was the name of the city at the time the mall was constructed. It was originally known simply as the Ville Jacques-Cartier shopping centre. After the municipality of Jacques-Cartier was dissolved, the mall took on the name of Place Jacques-Cartier throughout the 1970s and 1980s. It was renamed to its current moniker in the mid-1990s, presumably to avoid confusion with the attraction of the same name. It is now operated and owned by Toronto-based Strathallen Capital.

Place Desormeaux

Place Desormeaux is a shopping mall located in Longueuil, Quebec, Canada. Its major tenants are Super C and Walmart. The mall is made of approximately 45 stores occupying 240,000 square feet (22,000 m2) of rentable space. The mall has two banks: Bank of Montreal and National Bank of Canada.

The mall first opened on May 19, 1971 with Bonimart, Steinberg and Zellers as anchors with approximately 50 stores. At its opening, Place Desormeaux was the largest mall in the South Shore. Only Zellers had an outdoor entrance; Bonimart and Steinberg could only be accessed from inside the mall. Notable tenants in the 1970s included the Bank of Montreal, Banque Canadienne Nationale, Reitmans, J B Lefebvre and Laura Secord Chocolates.

Place Desormeaux began a renovation project in spring 1986 which was completed in the fall within the same year. A notable consequence of this renovation was the reduction of the size of the Bonimart store whose remaining anchor space was converted into a mall section for 15 to 20 new shops. This increased Place Desormeaux's number of tenants to 70 even if its total area remained the same.

On April 15, 1991, Zellers announced the rebranding into its nameplate of 46 Towers/Bonimart stores. Since there was already a Zellers store in the mall, the Bonimart at Place Desormeaux was closed. Its closing greatly decreased consumer traffic in the section of the mall it was located to the point that by the mid-1990s there was not a single shop left around where used to be Bonimart. In 1997, that part of Place Desormeaux was demolished and rebuilt with a complete new design to welcome the current Super C.

The Steinberg grocery chain went bankrupt in 1992. Unlike most Steinberg locations, the one at Place Desormeaux was not sold and was closed outright instead. A small grocery chain Esposito took over the lease. Esposito in turn closed in 1996, opening the way for department store Winners to install itself in the mall on August 22, 1996. After operating for some 10 years, Winners closed around late 2006/early 2007. The space is now home to a branch of the SAAQ and the Longueuil Local Employment Centre, both of which are part of the Government of Quebec.

After 40 years in operation, Zellers permanently closed its doors in June 2012. Walmart assumed the lease of the former Zellers store and opened its store in October of the same year.

Place Longueuil is a shopping mall located in Longueuil, Quebec, Canada. It is located near the Longueuil Metro station. The major stores are IGA Extra, Winners/HomeSense and, to a lesser extent, St-Hubert and Sports Experts.

Place Longueuil was built in 1966 with 65 stores anchored by Steinberg and Miracle Mart. Though not the oldest shopping centre in present-day Longueuil, it was nonetheless the first mall in what was then the city of Longueuil in 1966.

Place Longueuil and its 65 shops were destroyed on October 6, 1979 by a major fire started by a 9-year-old boy. It was the worst fire in Longueuil history, even requiring the help of firefighters from Boucherville, Greenfield Park, Saint-Lambert, Ville Lemoyne, Saint-Hubert and Varennes to extinguish it. Steinberg and Miracle Mart were not destroyed by the fire but they both suffered damages from it. The mall was rebuilt and reopened in April 1981 with 85 stores. It underwent an expansion in 1987.

Miracle Mart was renamed M in 1986 and finally closed in 1992. After M closed, Zellers took the location of M and remained there until its own closure in 2012 and its subsequent replacement by Target the following year. Half of the space then became a Winners/HomeSense on July 31, 2018 after the closure of Target in 2015.

There has been little change in the supermarket tenantship of Place Longueuil. In 1992, Steinberg was changed to an IGA which has been in the mall ever since.

On February 18, 2011, it was announced that Homburg Canada would succeed over Cogir as manager of Place Longueuil. The transaction took effect a couple of days later. As of 2017, Place Longueuil is owned and operated by Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust.


Promenades Saint-Bruno


Carré Saint-Lambert

Carré Saint-Lambert is a small strip mall located on Sir Wilfrid Laurier Boulevard near Victoria Avenue in St. Lambert, Quebec, Canada. The property is owned and operated by SGI Properties, a Quebec-based real estate company. Built in 1958, it is located just off the Victoria Bridge and near the Lemoyne neighbourhood of Longueuil.

Its major tenants include IGA, Familiprix, Le SuperClub Vidéotron, Société des alcools du Québec.
