Description The Kingston Centre was an indoor mall built in Kingston, Ontario in 1955 and demolished in 2004. The Kingston Centre name now belongs to a 223327sqft. campus-style open-air shopping centre on the same site, which replaced the now-demolished indoor mall.Anchored by the Loblaws supermarket, the current Kingston Centre is, like its predecessor, located beside a Canadian Tire store and bordered by Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd, Bath Road and Princess Street.Anchors & majorsLoblawsCanadian TireRexall Pharma PlusHistoryThe Kingston Shopping Centre was built in 1955 and anchored by Simpsons-Sears (later Sears Canada) department store. It was located at 1100 Princess Street in what was then the west end of the city, and served as one of two main transfer points for all Kingston Transit routes and the starting point for the city's annual Santa Claus parade. Originally an outdoor mall, it was converted to an enclosed indoor mall in 1970-71, and once boasted 78 stores including the two-storey Sears and a Loblaws supermarket.The Kingston Shopping Centre retained the title of largest shopping centre in the area until the Cataraqui Town Centre was constructed in 1982 in the former Kingston Township. Before then, its closest rival was the Frontenac Mall, built in 1967 as Kingston's first enclosed mall with 57 stores, anchored by Woolco.
