Hazeldean Mall
Hazeldean Mall is a shopping centre located in Ottawa, Canada at the intersection of Eagleson Road and Hazeldean Road, where Hazeldean Road changes turns into Robertson Road. First opening around 1980, Hazeldean Mall was anchored by Steinberg's and Towers. Many other stores and services were available, including a branch of the TD Bank, although it later moved across the street on Hazeldean Road next to Blockbuster Video, and then moved again to the Farm Boy Plaza. The decor of the mall was very dark, with floors of brown brick and wood panels. It was the largest retail venue in the former city of Kanata throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. In the early 1990s, the Steinberg's chain closed, and was replaced by Your Independent Grocer. Around the same time, Towers was purchased by the Hudson's Bay Company which transformed many Towers stores, including the one at Hazeldean Mall, into Zellers stores. Drug City was also a major tenant during the 1980s, until it was replaced in the early 1990s by Pharma Plus. Starting in the mid 1990s, the Kanata Centrum shopping area on Terry Fox Drive opened. With its big box store concept, the Centrum lured customers away from Hazeldean Mall. Toward the end of the decade, the mall underwent an extensive period of renovations, which completely removed the brick floors and wood panels, replacing them with much lighter coloured hues, and also installing a fountain. The space occupied by Zellers was expanded as well, and Pharma Plus expanded into the space formerly occupied by the TD Bank, also receiving a larger door leading directly to the outside. The mall's slogan used to be "THE Mall", but is currently "It's Better Inside." There are a few tenants at Hazeldean Mall today that have been there since the mall first opened, although all of them have changed locations within the shopping centre. They include:
  • Black's Camera
  • Granny's Natural Food
  • Parchment & Quill
  • Harden's Jewelers (originally known as House of Gold, and then Harden's House Of Gold)
