Owned by Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust, one of the largest diversified real estate investment trusts in Canada and the largest commercial property owner and manager in Quebec, Centre Laval serves the shoppers of the Montreal area and numerous visitors.
Centre Laval opened in 1968 with a Famous Players theatre, Woolco and Steinberg's department stores. A 1972 mall expansion was anchored by The Bay. Other expansions followed culminating with the present size in 1988.
Centre Laval has seen a lot of changes. In the early 1990s, the Famous Players theatre was expanded to twelve screens. Club Biz (now Staples) occupies the former Steinberg's space and Woolco was taken over by Walmart in 1994 after F.W. Woolworth Company sold Woolco to Walmart. The cinema space is now The Brick and a Future Shop while Best Buy took over the former Bouclair space.
Music World and Palais des Copains video arcade have closed. The Scotiabank branch, an original anchor in 1968, moved to the Quartier Laval open air shopping centre across the street.
In 2012, Walmart left Centre Laval to relocate as a Walmart Supercentre. Its site at Centre Laval was cleared to make room for a new Target store.
