Meanwhile, shopping malls began to appear in Greater Montreal. Quebec's first, ROCKLAND CENTRE, made its debut in September 1959.

Anchored by Montreal-based Henry Morgan & Company, the centre included Macy's Drug, a Steinberg supermarket and F.W. Woolworth 5 & dime. Advert from The Montreal Gazette
