Square One like the Eaton Centre were built in the 1970's and all those years, they look ageless. Square One is just like any malls in the suburbs. Unlike any malls, it has two theatres. One is Famous Players and Empire Theatres (former Cineplex Odeon).
Sears, Wal-Mart (2 floors), The Bay, and Zellers are anchors. This is the largest shopping mall in the Toronto area. If you were to visit every store, you could not do it in one day. This mall is big enough to have two Radio Shack stores (Now called The Source)! This is great to visit for "shopping-nuts", or if you just want to see a really-big mall!
What to buy:
This mall is huge! It's one of the LARGEST in the WORLD! When it w as built there were farms in the back yard! It was certainly a visionary project because now the area around the mall is totally built up with condos and homes. It's great for clothes and shoes. It doesn't offer much in the way of books but there's a huge Chapters across the parking lot. You also won't find alot of computer stores, just one CompuCenter which isn't very good. It's got everything else however, Sony Store, Starstruck, Movie theatres, Food, Video games, Phones.. the usual mall stores and some unusual ones too. Theres a Timothys and Starbucks and a Moxi Grill right in the mall, (good food there). The mall is like a small city, and theres alot to do. There's a Playdium arcade across the street with go carts and a huge Famous Players theatre as well as a huge Cineplex. Tons of food and theres a giant Walmart, The Bay and Sears have been there since the mall opened, in 1973. There's a Zellers too. The mall has had many facelifts and expansions over the last 30 years, and they are still improving it today. The food court is large and theres tons of light because most of the mall has glass domed roofs and skylights. It's got tons of parking and theres a library and Living Arts center across the parking lot as well as tons of new condos in the hood. It's a cool part of the city. Check it out! I grew up in this mall since I was 5 so I know what I'm talking about!
What to pay: from 1$ for coffee to 4000 for a huge flat screen tv at the sony store.
This is one of the largest shopping mall that I have been to beside Vaugh Mall....
Well.. basically all the malls in Toronto are selling similar stuff, so there's nothing unique about them that I can think of...
The size of this shopping mall is consider the 2nd largest one that I had been, and Vaugh is the largest and newest one that opened last year - 2004 :)
Located in the heart of Mississauga's City Centre, Square One certainly holds the distinction as Mississauga's shopping central. It also holds the honour as Ontario's largest shopping centre, with over 360 shops and services.
The first image coming into focus would be the indoor kiddy rides that are located along one wing of the shopping centre. Though popular internationally ( West Edmonton Mall, Mall of America, West Kowloon Centre ...), it is the only shopping centre in Ontario to host children's amusements.
