Thanx to my trusted GPS I have been busy exploring the TO Shopping jungle.
Everyone loves a great deal and I'm no exception!
Around the GTA there are a ton of discount stores and outlets offering a large selection of merchandise up to 70% off the retail price, all year round. You’ll find everything from home furnishings to designer fashions that are well worth the drive.

Holt Renfrew Last Call
Located inside Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre, Holt’s Last Call attracts those hungry for designer labels such as Hugo Boss, Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana. AWESOME for the diva on a dime!!!!!!!
Bayview Village Fashion Outlet
This north-end shop is packed to the rafters with women’s clothes including dresses. The ambience is pure bargain basement so dress the part (confy layers that allow you to try stuff on the spot) Chaotic ..., but the clothes, all brand new (consisting of manufacturer’s overruns and overstock) are a fashion hound’s dream ,worth the adventure.
Winners stocks all makes and varieties of designer clothing at discount prices. Arrive ready to search through aisle upon aisle of every type of apparel, because you never know what gems you're going to find.
Five on Spadina
One of the city’s best kept secrets, at Five you’ll find end-of-line stock or last season’s offerings reduced in price by 50 to 80 per cent, from brands such as Paul Frank, Laundry and BCBG. But the best stuff here is from hip foreign labels: Chocolate, the upscale Brazilian line, or Vero Moda from Denmark. AMAZING!!!
Everyone in the city has shopped here at least once, and most tourists have to visit once before leaving the city, if only to see all those lights once night falls. Flash aside, you can find the kitsch you crave, groceries, housewares, hardwares, toiletries and clothing. Name brands can be found here among the rest.
And for the little ones ....stunning simcha dresses can be found for (drumroll)....are you stting down? $5!!!! Kosher food deals are found in the food section around pesach like large kedem juice for a $1! last year..
So there you go, Enjoy!!
