They’ll also be available on Thursdays and Fridays in December to accommodate the busy holiday shopping season.

New Retailers

A handful of exciting new shops have opened this season including Miele, Oliver Peoples, Bottega Venetta, Lindt and Peloton. These are in addition to Yorkdale’s 270+ shops and services over two million square feet, including 49 restaurants to give shoppers that much needed respite and energy boost.

Car Wash and Detailing

Why not kill two birds with one stone and get your vehicle spruced up while you shop? This new service will wash and detail vehicles using the Yorkdale South Service Road valet. Yorkdale’s exterior hand wash and light interior detailing services include hand wash & dry, tire dressing, interior windows, upholstery and dash cleaning and dressing. Prices range from $40-$55, which include the valet parking fee. Large vehicles are an additional $25.
