It’s All Here at Manulife Centre


Whatever you’re looking for, it’s all here at Manulife Centre. From cabernet to cashmere, there’s something here for everyone and every need. And with plenty of new retailers joining the mix there is even more to discover at your favourite one-stop shop at the corner of Bay and Bloor.

What makes our shopping centre the perfect one-stop shop? Manulife Centre is at the heart of Bloor-Yorkville, one of Toronto’s most bustling and evolving neighbourhoods. This area – from Avenue Road in the west to Yonge Street in the east – boasts a retail mix of fashion, beauty, dining, fitness, homewares, electronics, grocery, pharmacy and specialty retailers. Pretty great, right? Well what if we told you that Manulife Centre – which occupies a single block at the corner of Bay and Bloor – offers all of that and more?

 

Fashion Central

Standby classics like Petra Karthaus, Ron White Shoes, Bonny Satchels & Duffles and Decatarina Leather have had you covered in the fashion department from head to toe for years, but in 2019 we were excited to welcome Yorkville legend Over the Rainbow to our mix. Over the Rainbow brings the best selection of denim in Toronto to Bay and Bloor alongside tons of fashionable and reasonably priced quality items to keep you on trend and on budget.

If you’re in need of a pamper, there’s no where better than Haartek for all of your beauty needs. Whether you need a simple trim, a expert colourist, or a cut that will change up your look complete, Haartek is the place to go. They also offer aesthetician services so you can get your mani pedis, facials and waxing done in one place.

All You Can Eat (and Drink)

Manulife Centre has no shortage of great food. From classic Italian lunch and dinner options at Scaccia to fine dining on the 51st Floor at The One Eighty there’s something for everyone here.  We also have an excellent Starbucks that is now accessible via our Concourse Level, and we’re excited to welcome Pilot Coffee Roasters at the end of September to give us a second option for our daily caffeine fix. On top of all of this, even the Cineplex Varsity & VIP cinema offers sit-down dinner options so you can take in dinner and a movie, all in one place. On top of all of this, Eataly – which is due to open later this year – will bring four new restaurants, half a dozen cafés and takeaway counters, and a craft beer bar to Bay & Bloor. To call Manulife Centre an eater’s paradise would be an understatement.

Workin’ on Your Fitness

Manulife Centre is home to one of Canada’s most iconic fitness duos – no, not Hal & Joanne of BodyBreak fame – but Goodlife Fitness and GNC. The two go together like peanut butter and banana in your favourite protein shake. They’re even located at opposite ends of the Centre so you can get some extra steps in while you head to the gym after picking up a protein bar for your post-workout refuel.

Find your way from GNC to Goodlife and back again using our directory.

 

Home is Where the Heart Is

Electronic Arts

If you haven’t shopped at Bay Bloor Radio can you even call yourself a Torontonian? Bay Bloor Radio is the Canada’s premier independent, family-run retailers of quality audio and video equipment, and with over 70 years in the business (and close to 5 decades at Manulife Centre) they deserve that title more than anyone. If you haven’t shopped there before, next time your shopping for electronics for your home or yourself head to Bay Bloor Radio for incredible product and unrivalled service.

Super Markets 

In addition to the many dining options listed above, Manulife Centre also has plenty of options for the home cook such at the incredible, newly named Independent City Market. You know Independent City Market as Bloor Street Market, and while their name has changed, their incredible offering and amazing staff is exactly the same. When Eataly arrives, with it they will also bring a marketplace that sells quality Italian and local products and produce, doubling your options for everyday and gourmet food at the Centre. If you’re just looking to grab something quickly to keep you going between meetings, pay a visit to Bay Convenience on our Concourse Level for a great selection of snacks and everything else you can find at your local convenience store.

Shoppers Haven

If you’re more of a “do-it-yourself” type when it comes to beauty, the recently opened Shoppers Drug Mart on our Concourse Level is the place for you. The Shoppers Beauty Boutique at their Manulife Centre location is second to none and even boasts exclusive brands such at NARS as well as expert staff who can help you achieve any look or skincare goal. In addition to their stellar Beauty Boutique, Shoppers has all the pharmaceutical essentials you need at one convenient location.

Special Services

In addition to all of the amazing retail offerings listed above, Manulife Centre is also home to a host of specialty retailers and services that make living life in Yorkville all the more special and convenient. Birks – in their new flagship store at the corner of Bay and Bloor – is the place to go for high end occasion and every day jewelry, plus they have a dedicated Van Cleef & Arpels section that is totally worth a browse. If you need to finance your Birks shopping habit, just a little further east along Bloor is BMO in their new state-of-the-art Bay and Bloor branch.

Manulife Centre is also the best place to get all of your life admin done in one place. With a dentist, an optometrist and a stylish optical we’ve got your health admin covered. While you’re at your appointment you can even get your clothes dry cleaned, allowing you to live your best, most organized adult life possible.
