Humbertown Shopping Centre is located in the upscale residential neighbourhood called the Kingsway, on the western side of the Humber Valley. The community was originally planned in the early 1900s, with the era’s architectural style reflected in the stone exteriors and half-timber designs on the streets. “A little bit of England far from England” was the agenda of the planner Robert Home Smith. Humbertown lives up to the area’s unique aesthetic having nurtured successful local entrepreneurs alongside the multinational chain stores.
