The Terrace Shopping Centre on Lakelse and Emerson opened its doors for business May 15, 1968.
Fifty years later, the centre’s merchants are working on plans to celebrate this milestone anniversary and thank the community for its support.
The public is invited to come out on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help them celebrate, starting with a barbecue, music, a history walk and more.
Organizers are asking people to bring any old pictures or stories they wish to share on anything relating to the Terrace Shopping Centre over the last 50 years.
When Terrace Shopping Centre opened on May 15, 1968, the first businesses to make their entry into the Terrace market were F.W. Woolworth, Canada Safeway, Toronto Dominion Bank, Cunningham Drug, Copp the Shoe Man and Sweet Sixteen. Other merchants who were already located in Terrace opened new stores in the centre including Erwin Jewellers and Terrace Photo Supply.
