1) It's One of the Largest Shopping Centres in Canada

It's also home to many speciality retailers, such as clothing store Red Coral, coffee and tea hotspot Beanwise, trendy plus-sized women’s wear store Voluptuous, Walter's Music and Nishat Linen. If you're planning a party, a renovation and a wardrobe change, it's the place to be.
2) They Have an App
If you don't know about the Wayfinding and Promotions App, you're missing out. The Heartland Town Centre app is the best way to plan your trip and find exactly what you’re looking for on your visit (and in a centre this large, it's helpful).
The app features interactive maps, exclusive promotions and store directories. It also has a feature called Trip Planning that directs you from store to store. If you're worried about your data, don't be—no internet is required.
You can download the official app here.
3) It's Perfect for Electric Car Owners
With the launch of 28 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, Heartland Town Centre shoppers can now charge their electric vehicle while they shop. The new charging stations are publicly available and capable of charging all electric vehicle models.
According to Plug ‘n Drive, this is one of the single largest installation of EV chargers in all of Canada. Better yet, the first two hours of use are completely free. After two hours, drivers pay affordable fees of just $2 per hour for up to three hours.

4) It Has a Historical Victorian Home
Known as The Forster House, this house was constructed around 1848 and is protected under the Ontario Heritage Act.
The Victorian-style home was originally owned by the Forster Family, and it is proudly part of Heartland Town Centre.
