Yorkdale will soon open its doors to the 300,000 square foot, $331 million expansion. This wing will feature a 112,000 square foot corridor featuring some of the the finest fashion names, the most-coveted luxury labels and every must-have brand making it in every sense, the Centre of Style.
Here is a list of stores you can expect to see between October 18 – 21:
- Canada Goose
- The Face Shop
- NYX Cosmetics
- Oak + Fort
“This expansion will signal a new era in the evolution of the Canadian retail landscape,” said Claire Santamaria, Yorkdale Shopping Centre’s General Manager. “We have been strategically expanding to meet shopper demand for a retail environment unlike any other in Canada. This investment is designed to cater to that demand and attract new shoppers seeking exceptional choice and diverse retailers.”
Yorkdale is one of Canada’s leading shopping destinations with the country’s highest sales per square foot ($1,610). Many existing retailers experience some of their highest sales worldwide at their Yorkdale locations.
“Yorkdale’s latest expansion will make Canada’s top-selling center even better. Investment into creating engaging brick-and-mortar retail experiences is critical to driving consumers into stores,” said Craig Patterson, Director of Applied Research at the University of Alberta School of Retailing. “Complementing a new anchor tenant with 30 new stores is a great strategy that will see increased pedestrian traffic at the property and more specifically in this expansion.”
Following the expansion launch in October, RH (Restoration Hardware) Toronto the Gallery will be opening a 69,000 square foot, multi-level flagship location on the west side of the property, its largest Canadian location to date.
