With over 240 locations across Canada,Winners is one of the leading off-price fashion retailers in the country. Torontonians can’t resist Winners’ off-price, designer fashions, home goods and accessories at 20-60% off daily. With Winners locations easily accessible all across Toronto and the GTA, shoppers familiar with this discount chain will confidently note that no two Winners locations are alike.
Winners’ stores and product offerings can vary significantly based on a number of factors including location, store size and proximity to another Winners, Marshalls, and/or HomeSense store. We found that the cleanliness and organization of many Winners locations can also differ depending on the time of day, how busy the store is and the store’s management.
Here’s our line-up of the best Winners locations in Toronto:
Yorkville (110 Bloor St. West)
This discount haven is discreetly hidden amongst the high-end designers along Toronto’s Mink Mile. Recently renovated, this Winners and HomeSense combo in Yorkville should not be missed. Spanning two floors, the Winners side offers massive footwear and accessories departments including a sparkly jewellery counter fully stocked with everything from Coach necklaces to Movado watches. Look out for a well-organized beauty department including a wall of clearance Lancôme cosmetics and Moroccan Oil hair care items.
Bathurst and Lawrence(3090 Bathurst St.)
The brands at the Bathurst and Lawrence Winners location are truly unbelievable. While most Winners stores now carry “The Runway by Winners” department featuring premium, high-end designers in a 10×10 display area, this Winners location carries endless brand names across all departments. We spotted Michael Kors dress shirts in the men’s department, Kate Spade skirts in the women’s department and Jimmy Choo shoes in the footwear department. Look out for an expansive home décor section with beautifully curated seasonal displays at the end of each aisle.
College Park (444 Yonge Street)
The Winners location at College Park is hard to compete with in terms of selection and size. This store is huge and while it can get messy quickly due to the large volumes of shoppers, the merchandise makes up for it. We found a covetable travel section at this location (think Diane Von Furstenberg luggage, Marc by Marc Jacobs passport holders and YSL sunglasses). If you spot an incredible deal at this College Park Winners location, don’t think about it – buy it right away, before someone else does.
Yonge and Church (35-45 Front St. East)
Just steps from St. Lawrence Market, the Winners location on Front east of Yonge Street boasts an elegant exterior, friendly staff and a warm and inviting store environment. While this location isn’t the largest, it’s easy to shop and not at all overwhelming. We enjoyed the massive footwear department and well-organized pet section (typically pet-friendly items are scattered by the cash). Also worth checking out are the sizeable men’s department and well-lit beauty department.
