The mall's original layout. Anchor stores fronted on dramatic, 3-storey court areas, each with its own balcony bistro. Some of the original inline stores were Reitman's, Fairweather, S.S. Kresge and a space-age Dominion supermarket. YORKDALE would be the nation's largest shopping mall for years to come. In 1964, it was also promoted as North America's largest interior mall...I don't suppose that they had heard of Chicagoland's RANDHURST CENTER?
