The mall opened in 1972 as the Sheridan Mall with 80 stores, its first major renovations were in 1998.

The PTC underwent a $17 million renovation through 2008 and 2009.[1] This included new floors, ceilings, lighting and seating areas. It has a modern look and features an additional elevator.

On the morning of November 28, 2016, the Pickering Town Centre was flooded with water, causing a closure of the majority of the lower level stores, as well as Santa's Castle; the cause of flooding was due to a broken water main. [1][2] Most stores had reopened by December 1, 2016.[3]

Following the closure of Target Canada in 2015, in 2017, the former Target store at the mall was replaced by 3 new stores, a Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH outlet store, Cineplex Cinemas 11 and VIP movie theater and a Farm Boy supermarket. There are also redevelopment plans for the former Famous Players movie theater and a Sears department store at the mall. In 2018 new stores were added such as Winners/HomeSense and a Hakim Optical store.
