Shopping’s a holiday at Manulife Centre


We work hard every day to create an elegant, relaxed and well-curated experience for our visitors.

In December we take it up a notch.

 

Look for gifts, not spots.

We’re still offering two hours of free parking with a $25 purchase, but from December 8–23, we’re also pleased to offer free valet service.

 

Wrap for a cause.

Our gift-wrapping service is back on the Concourse level across from Guest Services from December 5th to 24th, and this year it’s in support of the Children’s Aid Foundation.

For gifts purchased outside the Centre, we’re accepting $5 donations for small gifts, $10 donations for medium-sized gifts, $15 donations for large gifts and $20 donations for extra large gifts. Wrapping is complimentary for purchases made here.

Gift wrapping is available from Monday to Friday from 10am-8pm, Saturday from 10am-6pm and Sunday from 12pm-5pm. On Christmas Eve, the wrapping station is open until 4pm.

 

Shop to a soundtrack.

We invited the Steve Koven Duo to set the mood with a mix of soft jazz and seasonal favourites. Look for them on Monday December 12 from 12pm—2pm, Tuesday and Wednesday (December 13 and 14) from 5pm–7pm, Thursday and Friday (December 15 and 16) from 12pm–2pm and Saturday December 17 from 3pm–5pm.

 

Do extra right by the people on your list.

We sent some stylish elves through the Centre to find the perfect gift for anyone. Then we put them all together in a small, portable holiday gift guide you can pick up at directory stands on every floor. You can pick up your copy starting the week of December 5th.

 

And, of course, take it all in.

Bloor Street’s amazing this time of year. There’s our tree, of course, and then there are the gorgeous holiday displays, festive lights, happy faces and holiday spirit from Yonge Street to Avenue Road. Grab a hot drink from Timothy’s or from the Starbucks in Indigo and stroll the strip in style.

Ho ho hope to see you here.
