If you’re visiting North York, or are even just in the area normally, you’ve likely driven by Shops at Don Mills. It’s a premier mall owned by Cadillac Fairview, and it’s where you can find all your fashion, dining and entertainment needs. There’s so much this centre offers that you’ll likely find something you didn’t realize you need, every time. If you’ve never been to Shops at Don Mills, located at 1090 Don Mills Road in North York, here’s what you can expect to find when you drop by.

Lots of stores

There’s so many stores here you may not be able to actually visit all of them in one day. Are you looking for a new purse or wallet? You can stop by Coach. Or if you are more in the market for some outdoor gear, take a wander through Atmosphere and pick up everything you need. There are so many stores within this shopping centre, you’ll find complete retail therapy here. Make sure you plan some time to just wander around because you’ll want to take it all in, even if you don’t buy something at every store.

More than stores

While malls used to just be for shopping, things have changed a bit. Shops at Don Mills has way more to offer you than just retail therapy (though there’s lots of that, too). With three dental offices, a movie theater, an eye doctor, a plastic surgeon and more this is obviously more than just a place to shop. This area has almost everything to offer a family in one stop, so it’s a great place to have just down the street from your house.

Enjoy some eats

This shopping area does feature many options for eating, too. While you’re here you can enjoy some pizza, bubble tea or even a smoothie from Booster Juice. During the summer – or even the winter – you can pick up a delicious ice cream cone or sit down to enjoy a delicious burger from South St. Burger.

Feel a little more like sitting down to eat? No problem! There is also a big selection of restaurant options located here – like Jack Astors and Taylor’s Landing – so you could also sit down to enjoy a nice quite meal. No matter what you’re feeling, there’s a food option here for you and it’ll give you a nice break from your shopping excursions.

You could live here, literally

Unlike other malls and shopping centres, Shops at Don Mills has a unique arrangement that allows you to live on site so you don’t even have to drive here. This is Canada’s first outdoor lifestyle area, and the community Shops at Don Mills is located in offers a wonderful selection of condos for you to choose from. There are modern, urban lofts, elegant suites and everything in between. There will definitely be a living option that works for you and your lifestyle, right in the heart of a unique shopping area that surrounds a beautiful town square. Included in the plan for completely developing this area are open, outdoor public spaces and a full, family-friendly park so you will have everything your family could need in one convenient place.
