The mall has 135 stores covering 590,000 square feet (54,800 square metres)[1] including the first Apple Store in the Capitale-Nationale . The mall is situated next to Université Laval and to the shopping malls Laurier Québec and Place de la Cité.

Place Sainte-Foy, one of Ivanhoé Cambridge's oldest shopping centres, opened in phases in late 1958 and early 1959 and was developed by Ivanhoe Corporation on a site formerly anchored by just a Steinberg supermarket since November 1957.[2] The Royal Bank of Canada is the oldest tenant of Place Sainte-Foy, while the Salon Maxime hairdresser shop has been in the mall for over 50 years.[3] Among the anchor tenants, Simons is by far the oldest; it inaugurated in 1961 and expanded in 1988 and 2010.[3][4] Past anchors include Steinberg (1958–92), Miracle Mart/M (1963–92), Eaton (1975–99), Holt Renfrew (1965-2015) and Les Ailes de la Mode (1997-2015).

The sale of Mail Champlain to Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust in 2014 left Place Sainte-Foy as the last remaining shopping mall originally built by the former Ivanhoe Corporation that is still managed by Ivanhoé Cambridge. From 2004 to 2012, Place Sainte-Foy was owned in equal proportions by Ivanhoé Cambridge and Commerzbank AG (Commerz Real) of Germany.[5][6] Ivanhoé Cambridge reacquired Commerbanz's stake in Place Sainte-Foy in 2012 to become wholly owner of the mall again.[7]

On October 2010, Place Sainte-Foy completed a two-year renovations which added an underground parking to the mall and increased the size of the Simons store.[8]

The most recent investment project was announced in 2016, when the mall owners announced a $60 million project to build a state-of-the-art parking facility in the rear of the mall, adjoining Hochelaga Boulevard. The structure will include four stories above ground and one other underground level, totaling 3000 parking spaces.[9]
