Toronto Shopping Guide

Toronto is a world-class city with shopping to match. Its eclectic multicultural mix supports vibrant neighborhoods, each with a distinct flavor. Each neighborhood has its own specialties, from haute couture and trendy streetwear to rare books and antiques. Best of all, most neighborhoods within easy reach of the downtown core.


Sometimes referred to as “The Mink Mile” because of the vast number of luxury boutiques and high-end retailers on and around Bloor Street, the world’s most prestigious fashion brands have established flagship stores here. Among them are Canadian style leaders like Holt Renfrew, Roots and Harry Rosen. If you are going to spot a visiting celebrity, this is the place to do it.
