At Manulife Centre, we’re all about making sure every experience you have inside our doors is a memorable one, and that philosophy has been at the heart of our transformation.
While we’re proud to show off our new look, we’re even more proud that so many fantastic retailers have joined us on this journey of transformation, creating memorable retail experiences to delight your every sense. While at this moment in time you’ll have to wait a little longer to experience all we have in store, read on to learn a bit more about how your favourite retailers – new and old – have transformed their spaces to even better serve you.
Bay Bloor Radio
This downtown audiovisual staple has been serving up some of the best sonic experiences in the city for 75 years and they haven’t stopped yet! While Bay Bloor Radio has transformed many times over the years, their recent renovations are definitely worth a visit (once it’s safe to do so again)! Complete with a totally reimagined headphones department – including a private listening room for higher-end models – and a spectacular new entrance off of Bay Street, you’re sure to be impressed. Renovations to the Concourse Level are still underway, but these should be ready for you to experience this summer.
Bonny & Decatarina
Bonny Satchels & Duffles and Decatarina leather are a match made in heaven in their new Concourse Level store. While they relocated temporarily during the redevelopment, their new store brings even more polish and personality to their already incredible selection of handbags, briefcases, luggage and travel accessories.
New on the block, Eataly’s stunning 3-story space at the corner of Bay and Bloor is an experience unto itself – and that’s before getting into the incredible food on offer! Every corner of Eataly’s space has been carefully designed to create an authentic Italian experience in the heart of Toronto and we look forward to sipping Aperol at La Piazza once again, looking out over a bustling Yorkville.
The flagship Bay and Bloor location of Indigo underwent a huge transformation in 2019 to bring you a perfectly curated retail experience featuring the best of books, music, wellness, home decor and so much more. With specialty shops within each store to help you find exactly what your looking for and a calming atmosphere one can only hope to achieve in your home, you’ll be able to easily find exactly what you’re looking for while discovering everything you never knew you needed.
The Toronto flagship of the iconic Candian jewellery brand Birks underwent a massive transformation during our redevelopment. Their new store which opened in 2019 is accessible via Bloor Street and boast an incredible selection of Birks own designs as well as brands exclusive to select Birks locations, including a dedicated Van Cleef & Arpels Boutique.
Over the Rainbow
While Over the Rainbow has been Yorkville staple for decades, they opened new flagship store at Manulife Centre in 2019. Like their jeans, their presence here has been a perfect fit and we can’t love their store more. With their iconic denim walls flanking the store, impressively lit fitting rooms, an on-site tailor and plenty of space for non-denim fashions for men and women, this is a shopping experience you won’t want to miss when stores reopen.
Pilot Coffee Roasters
Pilot Coffee Roasters took over the coffee corner on our Main Level in 2019 and we’ve been loving their open concept, picture-perfect tambour wall and freshly ground beans ever since. Whether you’ve come by for a quick takeaway or to stay for a catch-up with a friend on the bench just outside (when permitted, of course), a visit to Pilot is sure to brighten your day.
Ron White Shoes
Ron White revamped their Manulife Centre flagship location on our Main Level in 2018 with a fresh new look that is as luxe as the shoes you’ll walk out in. Step inside for a customer service experience like no other (once store reopen again following the current lockdown measures).
Shoppers Drug Mart
Shoppers is another new addition to the Manulife Centre Family and their fully-stocked store complete with Pharmacy and an unrivalled Beauty Boutique is your one-stop shop for self care. You can come experience this essential service any time!
While the Wicket relocated when our Bay Street entrance was under redevelopment, we’re thrilled to have them back in a new location. Stop by for all of your post office and lottery ticket needs!
Toronto Eye Care
Your local optometrist relocated to their current location early in our redevelopment into a fresh new space on our Main Level. With a large waiting room and separate optical that is twice the size of their original space you are bound to have a comfortable experience while you tend to your eye health.
While doors are currently closed for many of our retailers, we can’t wait for you to experience these transformed spaces in the future. Stay tuned to our blog and social media to learn about future transformations and new additions.
