Everyone who lives in this area knows Oakville Place Mall. It originally opened in 1981, and has been a staple of the Oakville retail and shopping scene ever since. The mall has a traditional layout with department stores and a wide variety of retail and food stores inside.
Oakville Place Redevelopment
In the spring of 2015, RioCan Oakville Place broke ground on an ambitious $40 million renovation. The centre was enhanced with more upscale sophisticated elements including revitalized interiors that display timeless elegance, illuminated common areas, a grand south entrance and elevated façade, a new parking garage (opening on November 24th this year just in time for the holidays) with LED lighting throughout, along with four car charging stations, and an enhanced concierge kiosk.
Oakville Place offers a sophisticated shopping experience with a variety of upper-end lifestyle retailers for women, men and youth. General Manager Carl King explains that “Oakville Place is one of Oakville’s most recognizable landmarks, known as a great destination for the best in home decor, entertaining, food, fashion and beauty. Our shopping centre boasts new and noteworthy retailers such as Hudson’s Bay, Pusateri’s, Sephora, Pandora, Swarovski, Yankee Candle, Starbucks, Oliver & Bonacini and more.”
What’s happening over the holidays?
Christmas traditions are alive – and updated – at the mall. “Oakville Place is thrilled to announce its plans for the holiday season – a new Santa display known as Santa’s Imaginarium,” says King. “Santa’s new home is packed with something special and nostalgic for the whole family, including the Santa display that will feature a large tree with Santa residing underneath.” To ensure that special needs are met for children with disabilities, as well as their parents, Oakville Place has designed the visiting area to allow for private one-on-one time with Santa. There will be twinkling Christmas lights, dazzling gold and red decorations, elegant vintage toys in crystal clear balls, and a giant snow globe with a dancing ballerina. The centre court will come to life with beautiful holiday décor, which carries throughout the mall and into all of the Oakville Place entrances.
