History

Carrefour Angrignon opened on August 1986 with 200 stores and anchors from its debut were Sears, Zellers, Maxi, Eaton's and Pascal's.[1] The mall inaugurated on August 13 with opening dates varying for some stores (such as Maxi that launched on August 25).[1][2]

The mall underwent changes in 1991, as the former Pascal's store became a car lot for a one-year period (Rallye Honda Lasalle) prior to being split in two to become a movie theatre. Cine Entreprise built the theatre before Cine Entreprise was itself sold to Famous Players. By 1995, Famous Players and Future Shop occupied the former Cine Entreprise space. After a succession of ownership changes the movie theatre is now owned by Cineplex.

Eaton's closed in 1998, one year before the chain went out of business. Eaton's former space is occupied by Staples, Sports Experts/Atmosphere and Economax.

Future Shop moved to a new standalone location in 2004; it was demolished and rebuilt as a Best Buy store. Fortune Cinemas replaced the Famous Players location in 2006, only to be repurchased by Cineplex a few years later.

The Cumberland Drugs chain, which replaced Kanes Super Drug Mart in 1990, became an Essaim in 1997, changing to the current Pharmaprix by 2005.

Target was assuming the lease of the Zellers store on November 13, 2013.[3] Target was closed in 2015. A one-level Hudson's Bay store replaced it in August 24, 2018.[4][5][6]

Sears permanently closed in January 14, 2018.[7] This leaves Maxi as the last anchor from 1986. It was the fifth Maxi to open in the history of that chain and is now its oldest location on the island of Montreal since the 2015 closing of the store that was on Grande-Prairie boulevard in St-Leonard (whose opening preceded by a month the one at Carrefour Angrignon).[8][2][9]
