Retro Square One Shopping Centre Commercial Shows How Much The Mall Has Changed

Square One Shopping Centre has always been Mississauga’s go-to for shopping. And over the years, the mall has undergone renovations and upgrades, making it a top choice for new international retailers and major brands.

The mall originally opened its doors in 1973, and in the past year alone, Square One Shopping Centre has undergone a $580-million redevelopment, with new additions like The Food District, Morphe, and The Rec Room, to name a few.

Today the Mississauga mall is the largest shopping centre in Ontario, as well as one of the most profitable shopping centres in all of Canada.

According to a study done in 2018 by the Retail Council of Canada, Square One Shopping Centre is the sixth most popular shopping centre in the country, bringing in $1,086.78 per square-foot and attracting 23 million people a year.

Just like all of the greater Toronto area’s popular malls — we’re looking at you, Yorkdale Shopping Centre and CF Toronto Eaton Centre — Square One Shopping Centre comes with a history documented through retro commercials.

Instagram account @retroontario recently shared an ’80s Square One Shopping Centre commercial that’s a total blast from the past.

Take a peek at the video below. Released in 1987, it’s funny to see how much styles have changed and a great way to see how much the beloved mall has grown.
