Ready to cross those names off your shopping list? Or maybe you still need some inspiration for that ‘Gift List’? Well look no further, this is the shopping weekend to get you ready for the season. So what are you waiting for, grab you walking shoes, jump in the car and head to Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre, but, first, plan ahead, and reserve a Vaughan Mills Shop and Stay package to receive a $40 Vaughan Mills gift card to help get your shopping started. Stay at the trendy Aloft Vaughan Mills Hotel and you’ll be directly across the street from Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre – it can’t get more convenient than that! Vaughan Mills is Toronto’s premier outlet destination, and with over 250 stores and designer outlets, you’ll be powering through that list in no time. Be sure to stop for a coffee or sweet treat, you might need a break – did we mention the mall is shaped like a racetrack and spans 2km around? Give yourself plenty of time, you might be there a while! Retire to your room and call it a day. There will time for more shopping in the morning.
Start day 2 on Main Street Unionville for some unique finds at their all-new Christmas Market set in a heritage barn. Check out the various vendors for your inspiration to finish off that gift list. And don’t worry, if you don’t find everything you need, as there’s one last stop – Market & Co., Newmarket’s newest addition, is your final destination. This 40,000 square-foot, indoor, fresh food market features 18 artisanal merchants, with cooking classes also available on-site. So, check out their cooking class calendar and plan ahead to get hands-on during your visit. Stroll the aisles and visit this uniquely curated group of merchants for additional inspiration and satisfy that sweet (or savory) tooth at the same time. And if you’re still not done with your holiday shopping, head on into Upper Canada Mall, conveniently accessed from Market & Co., before getting back on the road.
