As Canada’s largest city, Toronto also has the largest range of shopping options. From chic boutique to brand names stores in malls to unique one of a kind items at trendy shops, Toronto is a shopper’s paradise. There are outlet malls, discount centres, very expensive designer’s boutiques and huge shopping malls.


Some malls like Yorkdale with the likes of Burberry and many other big labels and of course the Eaton Centre, located right in the heart of the city, have hundreds of stores.


Yorkville is a delightful district of Victorian buildings, narrow streets – one special shopping area is Hazelton Lanes – and beautiful streetscapes completely surrounded by the gleaming steel and glass towers of downtown. Yorkville is home to dozens of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries, including the shops on Bloor Street like Holt Renfrew, Prada, Hermes and Gucci.


Queen Street shopping ranges from retro funky shops in the west end to the upscale boutiques and chic shops of the Beaches area on Queen East. Queen West is also home to some of Toronto’s best known Clubs and Cafes.


Another great shopping area is around Yonge & Eglington where you can find everything from designer shoes to stores like FCUK and other labels.


These are just a few of the shopping options in Toronto. Others include the Annex, close to Yorkville and home to ‘Honest Ed's’ – the world’s largest department store selling ‘everything from twine to wine’ – Kensington Market, full of bohemian shops and a large area of food markets, and Danforth, which has a huge number of Greek shops. With Toronto's diverse ethnic population, it's not surprising that there's an endless variety in shopping options.
