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.

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 away from the much larger (but not enclosed) Carrefour de le Rive-Sud.


Mail Champlain

Place Portobello

Place Portobello[4] is a shopping mall located in Brossard, Quebec along Taschereau Boulevard near the Autoroute 10-Taschereau Interchange. It inaugurated on September 21, 1966 with Woolco, Dominion and 20 stores.[5] It expanded in 1976 and contains today 65 stores occupying 400,551 square feet (37,212.4 m2) of rentable space. There is a building in the middle of the mall with second and third floors serving as commercial office spaces.

Since March 2011, Place Portobello is operated by First Capital Realty. Place Portobello was previously operated the Cogir Management Corporation. Although it no longer manages the mall, Cogir still has its corporate headquarters in the office building of Place Portobello.

Some major tenants include Line Chest, Maxi and Jean Coutu. 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. Walmart (once the first ever Woolco store in Quebec) left the mall in January 2008 to relocate to a larger stand alone building in Quartier DIX30 and was replaced by Zellers from December 2008 to December 2012. Prior to the closure of said Zellers on December 17, 2012, Place Portobello had the chain's second largest store in the province (after the location in Terrebonne). 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.

Place Portobello was the second mall to be built in Brossard and is now the oldest mall in Brossard ever since the demolition of the city's first mall, Place Brossard, in 2002.

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 C which opened on January 23, 1985.[6] From the late 1980s and up until 2010, the mall was called Mail Carnaval and was named after Super Carnaval (the ancestor of Super C).

A Jean Coutu pharmacy was one of the original tenants, but soon moved out. American fitness chain Gold's Gym had a brief presence in the mall in the early 1990s but closed, and was eventually replaced by Famous Players movie theatre (now closed). Other notable tenants that once made business at Mail Carnaval include a Do it Center hardware store, the National Bank of Canada, Zellers and liquidations centres of Mexx and Tommy Hilfiger.

Up until 2007, Mail Carnaval was an indoor shopping centre. As of 2002, Mail Carnaval gradually began losing its small tenants and started resembling a dead mall. In the summer of 2007, the last small tenants left the mall and on 2009, the pedestrian main section of the mall was demolished.

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 has never operated an actual branch in the mall.

Shortly after Zellers closure in May 2010, the name of the mall was changed from Mail Carnaval to 5000 Taschereau. The portion, between Super C and Dollarama, that served as the mall's indoor corridor was demolished and turned into an empty lot. 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.

Galeries Taschereau

Galeries Taschereau is a strip mall that was an enclosed mall until 2002. Previously managed by Cambridge Leaseholds,[7][8] it is now operated by Sandalwood Management Canada, a subsidiary of Sandalwood Management of Austin, Texas.[9] The mall served as the city council of the city of Greenfield Park until the late 1990s.

The major tenants are Fruiterie 440, Hart, Village des Valeurs, 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), a cellular phone repair enterprise (UBreakIFix), and amarijuana market selling [pot-culture] paraphernalia

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.[10][11] 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 boutiques including a new Zellers store.[8][7] Zellers replaced the Eaton's (Foyerama) store.[8] It was a significantly smaller than typical Zellers stores and it closed in 1987. Village des Valeurs, Hart and a recently vacated Le Chateau warehouse occupy the space where this Zellers stood. It had no connection to the Zellers store that later opened in 1990 at Mail Carnaval. 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 of Montreal]but was converted to the strip format in 2001 after its remaining boutiques 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.[12] The mall itself and its boutiques opened in 1965 with, among others, anchor tenant Wise.

Toyville, a large-sized toy retailer, inaugurated on October 22, 1981.[13] The store was located on the end side of the shopping center that intersects Gladstone Avenue.[13] It closed on December 29, 1990.[14] Its space was occupied by a Club Biz office supply store from October 29, 1992 until the chain ceased operations in early 1996.[15][16] 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.[17]

Leon's opened a store in January 6, 1988.[18] 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 Chemin Chambly 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.[19] Univers Kids Dépôt, a second-hand shop which launched its very first store, took 5000 square of the former Leon's/Ha Bay emplacement.[20] Giant Tiger inaugurated on November 4, 2017.[21]

Pascal closed in 1991.[22][23] Goineau-Bousquet, a hardware retailer from Laval, opened in the former Pascal space in early 1992.[23][24] Goineau-Bousquet filed for bankruptcy protection in June 3, 1996 and, in the process, announced the closing of its Greenfield Park location, effective for the end of July.[25][26] In 1998, Cinémas Guzzo took the space to open what was, at the time, the biggest movie theater in Quebec history.[27]

In 1992, the Steinberg's grocery store became a Maxi.[28]

Winners opened on August 23, 1995 its first store in Greater Longueuil and its sixth in the province.[29] At 23 000 square feet,[29] it replaced the majority of the Wise store which had closed only mere weeks before and was the mall's last original anchor.


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 majors 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.

In 2007, a fire 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.

Since the mid-2000s, Centre Cousineau is more or less a dead mall, with some retailing chains such as La Source, Société des alcools du Québec and Petland having closed.

In 2010 Entreprises Point Zero acquired the mall and makes significant improvements, including exterior facades.

As of late September 2018, all the tenants have relocated to the outdoor section stores and the mall doors have been all locked with the lights turned off.

Le Vieux-Longueuil

Centre Jacques-Cartier

Centre Jacques-Cartier[30] is a small shopping mall located in Le Vieux-Longueuil borough of Longueuil, Quebec. It is located at the intersection of Chemin Chambly and Ste-Foy Boulevard.

Since its opening in 1957, Centre Jacques-Cartier has been the oldest shopping centre in the South Shore, if not the entire Montérégie. Like other early shopping centres in Quebec, it was developed by Ivanhoe, the real estate company of Sam Steinberg. 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.

Some of its current major tenants are IGA, Cinémas Guzzo, Dollarama, Village des Valeurs, Pharmaprix and Rossy. Its original anchors in 1957 were Steinberg's, Wise, Woolworth's and United Stores.[31] The mall is made of approximately 45 stores occupying 212,930 sq ft (19,782 m2) square feet of rentable space. It is now operated and owned by Toronto-based Strathallen Capital who also manages Dorval Gardens, another mall built in the 1950s by Ivanhoe.[32][33][34]

Place Desormeaux

Place Desormeaux[35] 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: Banque de Montreal and Banque Nationale.

The mall first opened in May 19, 1971 with Bonimart, Steinberg and Zellers as anchors with approximately 50 stores.[36][37] 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.

Place Desormeaux began a renovation project in Spring 1986 which was completed in Fall within the same year.[38] 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 boutiques.[38][37] This increased Place Desormeaux's number of tenants to 70 even if its total area size remained unchanged.[38]

On April 15, 1991, Zellers announced the rebranding into its nameplate of 46 Towers/Bonimart stores.[39] Since there was already a Zellers store in the mall, the Bonimart at Place Desormeaux was closed. Its closing greatly lowered consumer traffic in the section of the mall it was located to the point that by the mid-1990s, there was not a single boutique left around where Bonimart was. In 1997, that part of Place Desormeaux (which had been Bonimart's anchor space from 1971 to 1986) 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.[40] 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 in August 22, 1996.[41] After operating for 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.[42][37]

Place Longueuil


Promenades Saint-Bruno

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