This is what the massive Yorkdale expansion looks like
Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Toronto's ever expanding mall, just got bigger. The new addition features 18 stores, including big-ticket retailers Nordstrom and Uniqlo as well as a standalone Canada Goose boutique and a spacious Nadege.
Yorkdale's Uniqlo opened today, and just like its sister store at the Eaton Centre, it attracted massive lineups. Clearly Torontonians are keen to get their hands on Heattech before the cold weather sets in.
Muji sits right next to Uniqlo, meaning you don't need to travel very far to check out both of these popular Japanese brands.
This location features clothing, homeware and stationary as well as an in-store embroidery station and a food department. Yum.
The 199,000 square foot Nordstrom also opens today. Its multiple departments - for women, men, kids and babies - are spread over three storeys. And just like its downtown location, it features a cafe and bar.
Sure, Samsung might have had a problem with exploding phones, but its high-tech new store is still pretty lit.
Head here to drool over and maybe even test out the latest gear - it's like the Apple store for Android enthusiasts!
For those looking for some me time, the expansion features a lush Saje store. It's filled with natural wellness and beauty products. Let your nose guide you in and relax thanks to the essential oils that are defusing through the space.
For more beauty options, there's a brand new NYX. Like its flagship outlet on Queen Street, it sells its signature cruelty-free makeup products at very affordable prices.
There's also a Face Shop with lots of skincare products - like face masks, cleansers and toners - and makeup if you're looking for an alternative to NYX's bold colour palettes.
The Canada Goose store will definitely come in handy this winter. You can shop the iconic brand's various styles to keep yourself toasty throughout the long winter months.
As for clothing, there's a Strellson boutique for men and a bright new Maje store featuring ready-to-wear styles for women. The brand's fall jackets look like the perfect item to throw on during this weird October we're having.
For homeware, there's a huge Williams Sonoma with fancy-looking kitchen gizmos and gadgets aplenty.
And to refuel after wandering around through all of the high-end stores, you can visit Nadege for a macaron and a cup of coffee.
Yorkdale had fairly humble roots, but now it's a retail powerhouse with many of the biggest and most expensive brands on offer.
