Never been to Toronto before, eh? Check out Fairview Mall, a huge shopping center containing over 250 specialties stores and located at the intersection of 401 and 404 (Sheppard at the 404). Toronto's first multi-level mall (all previously built shopping centers were a single story), this fully enclosed center is easily accessible by car or via bus (a portion of the parking lot acts as a terminal serviced by both the Toronto Transit Commission and the York Region Transit).
Fairview Mall reinforces good health habits with its Mall Walkers Program, opening its doors to provide a year-round, climate controlled walking track daily from 7:00-9:30am. The mall also offers conveniences such as car lock-out and battery starter services. There are lockers in the food court for any items that a heavy shopper may not wish to carry around for hours while they make their way from Nine West to get that perfect pair of shoes to The Children's Place to be ensure their child is clothed in the latest fashion, then down to Starbucks to infuse the system with a shot of caffeine to boost the metabolism and keep on the move.
When you've bought that special gift for your significant other at Swarovski and found a new sweater at Tommy Hilfiger, you may want to sit down and rest with some popcorn and a movie. Head to the Rainbow Cinemas, where you can catch the latest action-adventure, or perhaps a fun family film.
For those with children, strollers are available, and wheelchair services are offered for those with disabilities, both free of charge on a first come, first serve basis. With accommodating hours (Monday through Saturday from 9:30am to 9:30pm, and Sunday from 10:00am to 7:00pm – Theatre and Department Store hours may vary), and exciting store locations, Fairview Mall is sure to be a memorable experience for visitors to Toronto.
