The mix of high-end and mainstream retailers reminds me of Somerset Collection in metro Detroit.A few photos from Ladurée which opened Thursday at noon: https://www.retail-insider.com/retail-insider/2017/12/ladure-opens-1st-toronto-location
Yorkdale is coming together quite nicely, and is unlike any mall in North America in terms of its retail mix. Buscemi has opened its 3rd store in the world, and Mr. and Mrs. Italy is across from Ladurée. Next week Dyson opens -- had a peek yesterday, it looks pretty cool inside.
That wasn't my impression. I saw the same mix of high-end and mainstream in both parts. The north wing has Nordstrom; the south wing has Saks Fifth Avenue.It's more of a mix at Yorkdale. Somerset is really two malls (one high-end, one mainstream) connected by a long bridge.
Have you seriously not realized by now that most Torontonians can't fathom not driving? It's not a coincidence that transit in the city sucks so much when for half a century local politicians have been successful in making the parasitical car-centric model of a city a priority... and then people have the audacity to call Toronto a "world class" cityWhy are people driving to Yorkdale Mall when the TTC is free all day today, December 17, 2017?
