When it comes to fine dining and luxurious shopping experiences, Toronto has a lot to offer. With world class shopping centers, famous street markets, and outlet malls, Canada’s most well-known city—aside from its capital, Ottawa, of course—has something for everyone. If you’re planning on relocating to Toronto any time soon for business or personal reasons, then be sure to check out some of these top shopping centers. You won’t regret it!
Toronto Eaton Centre
To locals, this bustling shopping complex in Toronto is also simply referred to as The Eaton Centre. Located in the downtown core of the city on one of the busiest street corners in the world (Yonge and Dundas), The Eaton Centre boasts having well over 200 shops and boutiques that are frequented by tourists and city dwellers alike. It’s also within close proximity to the historic Ed Mirvish Theatre, so you can enjoy a full day of shopping right before seeing a highly acclaimed live performance in the evening.
Toronto Premium Outlets
Toronto Premium Outlets is a fairly new shopping centre located in the affluent Halton Hills neighbourhood. It features over 80 high-end shops that are sure to enhance your shopping experience with revered fashion brands like Kate Spade, Burberry, Coach, and Michael Kors just to name a few. If you’re relocating to the heart of downtown Toronto, you can easily take a shuttle bus directly from Union station to get your shopping fix.
Yorkdale Shopping Centre
Yorkdale Shopping Centre (or Yorkdale for short) has been a major staple in Toronto and the GTA since it first opened its doors for business in 1964. Known for its iconic and stunning glass roof that lets in a tremendous amount of natural lighting, Yorkdale has gone through some major renovations over the years including additional parking, a subway extension that makes it easy to get to from Toronto, and a state-of-the art food court that offers a wide range of cuisines.
Much like the other shopping centres in Toronto, Yorkville Village has also undergone a great deal of changes over the years. Until January 25th, 2016, this gorgeous mall with its impeccable architectural designs was known as Hazelton Lanes. Since it’s located on Avenue Road, just north of Bloor Street, if you are temporarily staying on Toronto, this mall is also a short walk away from some of Toronto’s other major attractions such as The Royal Ontario Museum (The ROM for short).
St. Lawrence Market
The historic St. Lawrence Market has been a Toronto staple for well over 200 years. With its beautiful architecture, tasty food options, and summer festivals, this particular street market has been attracting tourists and locals for centuries.
Vaughan Mills Mall
An affordable outlet mall located in Vaughan Ontario, Vaughan Mills mall first opened its doors on November 4th, 2004 and has been attracting eager shoppers looking for bargain prices ever since. Just south of Canada’s Wonderland, this mall is in the perfect location for all day family outings, especially if you are relocating your family to Toronto.
