Meanwhile, in Greater Montreal, shopping malls began to appear. Quebec's first entry, ROCKLAND CENTRE, made its debut in September 1959. Above we see a full-page spread announcing the gala grand opening of the 39-store, open-air shopopolis. Anchored by Montreal-based Henry Morgan & Company, the centre included Macy's Drug, a Steinberg supermarket and F.W. Woolworth 5 & dime.
