One of the most popular shopping destinations in North America, Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto grew out of the now defunct Eaton's department store chain that once held much of the land on which it is built.
Timothy Eaton purchased a dry goods business on Yonge Street in 1869 and the Eatons family business grew rapidly from there. The first phase of today's Eaton Centre was opened in 1977. While the Eaton's 'empire' entered bankruptcy in 1999, there are still shopping malls carrying it's name in several Canadian Cities.
Today this shopping centre and office complex is the fourth largest in Canada. It features multiple levels with a galleria style vaulted glass ceiling, a design which has been copied in various forms in malls throughout North America. The centre is also connected to a 17 storey Marriott hotel.
The mall offers over 230 stores, restaurants and services including two food courts. Major retailers include Best Buy, Canadian Tire and H & M. Canada's largest 'flagship' Hudson Bay store is not in the mall, but is connected via a covered pedestrian walkway.
The mall was home to the largest Sears store in Canada, but it has since shut down and upscale American fashion retailer Nordstrom is planning to open for business in the same space sometime in 2016.
Getting to Eaton Centre by public transit is easy with the mall stretching between Queen and Dundas Subway Stations.
