    Woodbine Centre

    The creditors went to seize the property, propose punitive damages on the owner, then saw how the mall looked and said "nah, bro. You've suffered enough, lol".

    Woodbine Centre

    Besides more stores and food court restaurants closing down, I noticed the Zellers portion of the parking lot is filled with cars. Seems like that partition is being used for temporary storage. As for the tractor trailers, I think the Woodbine will be gutted soon. Whether store by store, or in...

    Woodbine Centre

    Yes, hello there, hello. I am the owner of the Woodbine Centre; voted #837 on Closeout King's 'Best malls to visit in the GTA list', three years running. As a trusted business owner and accomplished entrepreneur in the retail sector, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for continuing...

    Rexdale Plaza

    Thanks to Eugenio Arcilesi of Vintage Rexdale for this 1965 coloured photo of Rexdale Mall looking south towards Chilcot Ave. Eugenio was also kind enough to provide this accompanying photo from 1965 of the Candy Time shop in Rexdale Mall. See if you can spot the old Sears water tower in...

    The Albion Centre

    Thanks to Chuck Woodill over at the Vintage Rexdale facebook group for providing scans of this Albion Mall Restaurant menu from 1964!

    Woodbine Centre

    Either the owner has no other property left to place the trailers besides the Woodbine Centre, or we're about to be hit by a massive snowstorm of liquidated goodies. Brace yourselves, shoppers. There's broken glass, expired soda, and trips near Disneyland to be won.

    Woodbine Centre

    More fantastical daydreams from Woodbine's 200 trillion dollar renovation plans. I was at the Woodbine two days ago (you can stop applauding now), and I couldn't believe how gutted the food court was. New York Fries: gone. Taco Bell: Adios. The Sushi spot around the corner: ancient history...

    Woodbine Centre

    If you wear a hard hat during demolition, you could probably walk out with as many Woodbine benches as you wanted. "Yeah, I'm just gonna bring these to the dump for scrap metal, brb"

    Woodbine Centre

    I still question how Hudson's Bay stays in business at the Woodbine. Despite there being other Bay locations in Brampton and Mississauga, do people intentionally go out of their way to shop at the Woodbine's location? Does the Fantasy Fair have that much leverage over us? I say this defiantly...

    Woodbine Centre

    All of the tractor trailers are already parked at a dump. The next stop would be a landfill. Not the most eco-friendliest solution. So, we might all have to buy a Coronation DVD game, or set of broken dishes to help save the environment.

    Merry Christmas, everyone. You can warm up this holiday season by reading the fire hazard order placed outside Shop A Lot in the Woodbine Centre:

    Cedarbrae Mall

    The former Walmart/Zellers has been converted into a new wing within the Cedarbrae Mall. One side of the extension is Dollarama, while the other is Ardene. The Dollarama (which used to sit at the lower level of Cedarbrae) is now a gutted lot. Following suit, the Fruugo on the opposite end of...

    Water damage to the ceiling was my first guess as well. I remember Freedom mobile had a bucket set out to catch the leaking water months ago. I guess the Woodbine's current owner finally got the indoor water theme park he always wanted.

    Woodbine Centre

    For many years, it was a weekend ritual for my pops, brother and I to visit the Woodbine cinemas. We were there for the last run of Cineplex Odeon, stumbled upon the grand opening of Rainbow Cinemas, and were present for the dying days of Imagine Cinemas. As usual, Dad would put five dollars on...

    Woodbine Centre

    The area outside of Cinestarz is currently sealed off with caution tape, as parts of the ceiling are being removed. A bin at the bottom collects the fallout. Local residents are reportedly furious, as they are no longer able to use the lone ATM, or enjoy the Airplane and choo choo train...

    Woodbine Centre

    I remember when you could look down from the second level and admire the Woodbine Centre logo etched into the floor tiles. A time when the elevator had a functioning fountain around it. Even with the weekly shows these days, I think adding the stage was completely unnecessary. It just makes (a...

    Woodbine Centre

    Perhaps Rexdale Mall is slowly being gutted, much the same as parts of the Woodbine has in the past. I guess the owner is skipping the auction process this time around. Needless to say, Woodbine has plenty of empty stalls perfect for Rexdale Mall's product.

    When Albion Mall opened as a strip plaza in1964, Loblaws was the anchor that sat where Canadian Tire now resides. Kmart took over in the 70's, and Loblaws switched to the opposite end of the mall (where Fortinos would eventually pop up in the 90's). Dominion was a fixture of the Rexdale Mall...

    Despite my razor-sharp quips as of late, I admittedly want the Woodbine to stay afloat ...and that's not because I make a decent side hustle selling stuff I pick up from the mall every week. Totally not for that reason at all.....

    Woodbine Centre

    Visited two days ago. Shop-The-Rot's (lower Zellers) lights were back on. I'll hold for everyone's applause/shortness of breath. Yet, the store was still sealed up. Either the Woodbine is finally getting around to fixing the fire hazard problem, or Shop-The-Rot is in the process of becoming...
