 Toronto Shopping



Toronto has ample opportunities for shopping, and nearly any section of the city has unique places to shop and find deals:

Yonge Street is locally regarded as the longest street in the world. This is actually not true, but it's best not to argue with the locals about it! It runs from the edge of the lake to about 100 km north of the city. The in-town end is a touristy-shopping district with many restaurants, souvenir and gift shops, etc.

Yorkville is the high-end shopping district of Toronto. Once a haven for Toronto's hippie population, it is located just north of Bloor and Bay Streets and is now home to many designer boutiques. During the annual Toronto Film Festival the area is "ground-zero" for celebrity watching.

Located a short walk west of the Eaton Centre is the city's fashion district along Queen Street West, an area usually bustling with local hipsters looking for the latest looks in a variety of trendy stores. The stretch between University Ave and Spadina tends to be much more main stream with an ever increasing number of chain stores. More offbeat choices can be found west of Spadina Ave stretching all the way into Parkdale.
Pacific Mall at Steeles and Kennedy in Markham, the largest Chinese indoor mall in North America is definitely worth a visit if you are interested in Asian-Canadian culture.

Chinatown - Centered at Dundas and Spadina, Toronto's Chinatown is a great way to see China without spending the airfare. Vast crowds crush the sidewalks as vendors sell authentic Chinese and Vietnamese food, and not-so-authentic knock-offs. It is one of North America's largest Chinatowns, and with many stores geared towards tourists, it is a good place to pick up souvenirs.

Toronto Eaton Centre - A massive shopping mall located at Yonge & Dundas Streets, this is a haven for those looking for a more "commercial" experience. Shoppers from around the world will be comfortable here, as most major stores and labels are represented, along with a bustling food court serves fast meals to the rushing crowds.

Yorkdale Shopping Centre - A shopping centre located in the north of the city, accessible from Yorkdale subway station. This is a full-service mall with hundreds of stores, but which is also rife with packs of roving teenagers who use the facilities as a social scene. Make use of the subway if possible on weekends, as visitors pack the parking areas to capacity.
