12 Days of Bloor & Better


Our neighbourhood goes all out for the holidays, from the gorgeous decorations in Yorkville to the windows at Holts. This year, we’re joining the festivities in a big way with our very first holiday lounge just inside the Bloor Street entrance.

Relax & Rejoice
Starting December 11th, come take a load off, kick back to some holiday tunes and watch the smiling faces come in with their lists and out with their loot. We’ll have phone-charging stations and free Wi-Fi if you want to send a few selfies to your pals (or to us @ManulifeCentre), and we’ll be serving holiday snacks and drinks throughout the day. Yum!

Munchies & Movies
We’ll be serving holiday food and drinks every day, whether you need some nourishment to get you through the busy shopping season or you want to toast yourself for crossing the last name off your list. And if you stick around a bit, you can catch a festive flick — we’ll be showing a different one every day. Between films, we’ll also be bringing you some exclusive holiday demos you can take in and apply to your preparations. We’ll look at gift thoughts, styling tips and some cooking ideas you might never have thought of but really should, because if there was ever a time in the year to go all out, it’s now.

Speaking of gifts, like last year, we’ll have complimentary gift-wrapping starting December 5th for anything purchased at Manulife Centre to save you time at this busiest of busy seasons. And to save you even more time, we’re offering complimentary valet parking starting December 6th so you don’t have to circle the area looking for a spot. We can tell you right now that it’s going to be busy down here — it already is!

Keep an eye out on our social channels for updates to the holiday lounge schedule, and for any last-minute changes to the movie line-up. And if you have any movie requests, feel free to tweet them to @manulifecentre using the hashtag #movielounge.

The 12 days of Bloor & Better run from December 11th to the 22nd. Whether you’re here to shop or just walking through, stop in for a visit. Ho ho hope to see you!
