At the time of the centre's opening in , the complex was marketed as "The Eaton Centre", before changing its name to "Toronto Eaton Centre" in the early s.
Despite the bankruptcy of the Eaton's department store chain in and the closure of a short-lived Sears Canada-owned revival in , the mall retained the Eaton Centre name, representing an ongoing tribute to Timothy Eaton and the small shop he once opened at this location.
However, as Sears retained the Eaton's trademarks and other intellectual property , the name was used under licence until December , when Cadillac Fairview acquired the Eaton's IP outright.
In early , mall management began an effort to enforce usage of the full "Toronto Eaton Centre" name. However, at that time, exterior signage was inconsistent as to the centre's name, with signs facing Yonge—Dundas Square simply reading "Eaton Centre" while several others used the full name.
Despite the controversy and criticisms, the centre was an immediate success, spawning many different shopping centres across Canada bearing the same brand name of Eaton. The mall's profits were said [ who? Today, the Eaton Centre is one of North America's top shopping destinations, and is Toronto's most popular tourist attraction. One of the most prominent sights in the shopping mall is the group of fibreglass Canada geese hanging from the ceiling.
This sculpture, named Flight Stop , is the work of artist Michael Snow. It was also the subject of an important intellectual property court ruling. One year, the management of the centre decided to decorate the geese with red ribbons for Christmas, without consulting Snow. Snow sued, arguing that the ribbons made his naturalistic work "ridiculous" and harmed his reputation as an artist, and in Snow v Eaton Centre Ltd , the court ruled that even though the centre owned the sculpture, the ribbons had infringed Snow's moral rights.
The ribbons were ordered removed. The mall has stores and restaurants. When the Eaton's chain went bankrupt in , many of its corporate assets were acquired by Sears Canada , which included the lease on the department store space at the north end of the mall, giving Sears a prime location in Toronto's downtown core for the first time. Sears Canada briefly ran the department store as part of an upscale "eatons" mini-chain but by the store had become a Sears store.
In June , a would-be shopper was filmed shouting at the locked doors of an entrance to the Eaton Centre, which was in the process of entering lockdown as the G20 Summit street protests loomed nearby. However, the video has been re-uploaded hundreds of times by other users. Renovations, begun in , helped attract new retailers to the mall.
It was announced on October 29, , that Sears Canada would close its flagship location at the mall amid the retail apocalypse. On January 15, , Nordstrom announced that it will be taking over some of the space vacated by Sears. In addition, in January , Cadillac Fairview announced that it would take over ownership and marketing of the Hudson's Bay location across Queen Street.
The new north food court, the Urban Eatery, features typical food court outlets; outlets of smaller Toronto-based chains; and international-style cuisine. Disposable packaging has been mostly replaced with cutlery and plastic cups and dishes; the area began with over , dishes and 20, cups.
On June 2, , a shooting took place in the Urban Eatery food court, while the mall was heavily crowded with shoppers. Seven people were shot: According to Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair , Hassan and Nirmalendran may have had gang affiliations and both were specifically targeted. Others were injured in the panic as people fled the area, including a year-old pregnant woman who began undergoing labour but did not give birth.
Two days after the shooting, year-old Christopher Husbands turned himself in to authorities, and was charged with second-degree murder.
He was also found guilty of five counts of aggravated assault, one count of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and one count of reckless discharge of a firearm. Two months prior to the shooting, he had survived an attack in which he was stabbed more than twenty times by six gang rivals.
