Toronto Shopping

Like any metropolitan city, Toronto shopping includes everything you could possibly want.   From large shopping malls like The Eaton Center and Yorkdale to hip clothing boutiques on Queen Street, your wallet will certainly be a little bit lighter after your next trip to Toronto.
One aspect that attracts U.S. and European tourists to Toronto is the affordable pricing of goods and wears.  Though the exchange rate fluctuates, the Canadian dollar can sometimes drop to about 20% less than the U.S. dollar.  Due to its proximity to the U.S., it’s a prime location for cross-border shopping and weekend purchasing sprees.
Malls
To find everything you want under one roof, head straight for the best malls on your next Toronto shopping adventure.  The best and biggest option in the downtown core is the Eaton Center.  This huge over ground and underground complex features all the top retail chains for clothing and electronics including Best Buy, HMV, The Gap, Banana Republic, H&M, The Apple Store and more.  There’s a large food court, direct subway access and even a huge AMC movie complex right across the road. 
If you’re uptown, then be sure to get to Yorkdale for some serious Toronto shopping.   Also located conveniently on the subway line, it offers the best in well-known name brands like Guess Jeans, Zara, and Club Monaco to name a few.  For those in search of upscale clothing by Armani, Hugo Boss and Versace, be sure to check out Holt Renfrew.
Shopping Al Fresco
If you prefer to do you Toronto shopping outside then there are several neighborhoods that offer big retail chains.  Visit Yorkville and Bloor Street in mid-town Toronto for fashionable boutiques, jewelry and watches.   Note that this area is comparable to Rodeo Drive in L.A.  in that it attracts the rich and famous and caters to the wealthy market.
For some funky and more affordable Toronto shopping options, check out Queen Street West which features smaller, reasonably priced boutiques featuring exclusive wears by Canadian designer.  Not far away is Kensington Market –an area just north of China Town that includes a number of thrift shops for those seeking out vintage clothing on their Toronto shopping outing.
Underground Toronto Shopping
Due to the fact that Toronto experiences cold and snowy winters, much of the downtown core is connected by a networks of pathways that lead from subway stations to all the big buildings.  This is called the PATH system and it covers a radius of several miles.   But it’s much more than a convenient way to get from the subway to the building you work in without braving the cold whipping winter winds.   In fact, the entire PATH system is lined with shops and restaurants and many people do their shopping there.  You can spend the day exploring Commerce Court West, First Canadian Place and the T.D.  Center (build by famous architect Mies Van Der Rohe), all while doing your Toronto shopping.  The PATH system also connects to many of the large hotels located in the downtown core and financial district.  This means you can walk with comfort and convenience from your hotel to the sopping spots without having to deal with the cold outdoors, taxi or the subway.
