featured? We want to hear about it!
Stone Road Mall
Location: 435 Stone Rd W, Guelph, ON N1G 2X6
Stone Road Mall is the largest shopping centre in Guelph as well as Wellington County. It was constructed in 1975 and is currently operated by Primaris, a company who also operates over a dozen shopping malls across Canada.
The mall is located on Stone Road and is easily accessible from Highway 6 (Hanlon) and is in close proximity to the University of Guelph, making it a convenient venue for both permanent city residents and students.
Surrounding the shopping centre are dozens of restaurants and coffee shops, gas stations, a hotel, housing complexes and other residential homes. In fact, our own Talisman Square is located directly next to the mall's property, close to the intersection of Stone Road and Edinburgh Road.
If you can't find what you're looking for at the mall, you will almost certainly find what you're looking for at one of the many surrounding amenities (and vice versa).
Back to the mall...
It is 522,000 square feet and last underwent a significant renovation project in 2016. The project modernized much of the centre and saw the expansion of stores.
Stone Road Mall has more than 140 retail stores, a water fountain, and a large parking lot that includes a parking garage that connects directly to the second floor of the mall. SportChek, Old Navy, Indigo, Roots, H&M, Forever 21, and Footlocker highlight the list of stores.
It is open 7 days a week; Mon-Fri 10:00am-9:00pm, Sat 10:00am-6:00pm, and Sunday 12:00pm-5:00pm. It is closed on most holidays, though.
Whether you live in Guelph or are simply visiting, Stone Road Mall has nearly everything you need (and want).
It's definitely worth a visit.
