Vintage shots of one of (if not) the first shopping malls in Canada. DON MILLS CONVENIENCE CENTRE was dedicated in 1955. Originally encompassing fifteen stores and services, it included a Dominion supermarket and Koffler's Drug. Toronto-based Eaton's added one of their earliest branches in 1961. The centre was enclosed in 1978 and completely demolished in mid-2006. It has been redeveloped as SHOPS AT DON MILLS, an open-air "lifestyle" retail hub.
