Going back to school, after summer break, is one of the most exciting and long-awaited moments, especially for kids. But what’s even more exciting is going back-to-school shopping!
Parents are looking for deals on products that are of good quality, that will last the whole year and kids want products that look cool.
Generally, when we think of where to shop, we think of the big malls or superstores. This year I encourage you to shop right here in Downsview and support a local business. Look for small business owners and help boost the economy right in the neighbourhood by shopping close to home.
There are many shops in the area where you can find all your child needs for the new school year. We have two malls in the area: Jane and Finch Mall and Yorkgate Mall, both at the corner of Jane St. and Finch Ave. These malls offer great discounts to residents who live in North York with stores for students of all ages.
In Yorkgate Mall they have stores like S’il Vous Plait, Payless -which usually offer a 40% discount on shoes for back to school, Ardene’s -featuring some products that are 70% off all year round. In the Jane and Finch Mall some great stores to shop at are Mega Children’s Wear, Mini Kids Fashion, Urban District. You can also check out the many shops on Orfus Rd (off of Dufferin near Yorkdale Mall), also close to Downsview.
Happy back to school shopping, we wish you all the best in your new school year!
