Vaughn Mills is a relatively new shopping centre, with unrivaled shopping and high end outlets that include Hugo Boss Factory Store, Guess, Michael Kors, A/X Armani Exchange and Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. Popular stores like H&M, Lululemon and MAC Cosmetics are here, as is the high end department store Holt Renfrew

Kill some time at entertainment attractions like Legoland Discovery Centre or Hollywood’s Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes, where you can enjoy laneside food and drink service while you bowl a few frames and rock out to the nightclub style sound system. Any service you could possibly imagine is here, from one-hour dry cleaning to shoe repair, and the top salon professionals at Fiorio can take your do from flat to fab to get you destination ready.

Yorkdale Shopping Centre is located on a south-easterly trajectory from Pearson airport, and has plenty of unique stores, restaurants and services to help you pass the time on your layover. Boasting both a Hudson’s Bay and Holt Renfrew department store, as well as over one hundred specialty stores, every possible whim can be attended, including many restaurants to help you refuel. Coach and Versace have stores here, and you’ll find an extensive selection of cosmetics at Sephora, lingerie at Victoria’s Secret and truly Canadian apparel at Roots. Restaurants offer a wide variety for all palates from Starbucks to sushi, fine dining at Milestones, inspired Indian cuisine at Amaya, Mexican at Chipotle Grill and all the wheat grass juice you can knock back at Jamba Juice. If you’re traveling with the kids, you’ll want to grab a bite at the Rainforest Café: it’s like dining under the canopy of an exotic rainforest, complete with jungle sounds and the occasional thunderstorm – or at least a good audiovisual representation. There’s plenty of parking at the mall entrance, transit shuttle service to the airport and convenient pick up lanes for limo access when you’re ready to head out.

While at Yorkdale, it’s recommended to check out the outlet stores of Orfus Road. Orfus runs perpendicular to Yorkdale Rd., and though you may not recognize the store names, you will have a hard time finding better bargains anywhere. From Italian factory shoe and suit outlets, Le Chateau Factory Store, and the Roots Factory Outlet to the gourmet paradise of Kitchen Stuff Plus, you’ll be in bargain hunter’s heaven. Here’s where it’s really advantageous to have your own ride, as Orfus Road’s stores are not as well joined as they would be in a conventional mall.
