Etobicoke (1840 The Queensway)
Located just outside of Toronto, this Etobicoke HomeSense store is in the vicinity of a slew of other home décor retailers (think Home Outfitters, Bouclair, Urban Barn and Structube). Our guess is that this Etobicoke HomeSense has really upped their inventory game in order to remain competitive with neighboring décor retailers. We found this HomeSense store to be a hot spot for large, modern furniture pieces like dining room tables, nightstands, and armchairs. Act fast because although these larger items are heavy to transport back home, the “sold” pile of items by the entrance accumulates rather quickly!
Mississauga (4141 Dixie Rd.)
Located just inside of Rockwood Mall, this Mississauga HomeSense location will blow you away with a huge selection of decorative wall pieces. Unique and modern picture frames, clocks, mirrors, and artwork spill over into multiple aisles, one with more selection than the next. We particularly loved this location for the amount of clearance merchandise at the back of each aisle. Each department (from cookware to bathroom accessories,) had a minimum of two end caps worth of clearance décor items to shop from.
Burlington (777 Guelph Line)
This west GTA HomeSense store is tucked away inside of Burlington Mall and is a gold mine for glassware, bowls, plates and other kitchen knick-knacks. Bonus points to this store for its unique selection of stationary finds and paper products by the checkout. The shelves of merchandise surrounding the checkout line houses a wide selection of novelty mugs and high-quality gift wrap – a great one-stop shop for gift giving indeed!
Vaughan (1 Bass Pro Mills Dr.)
Looking for a deal? We were pleasantly surprised by the assortment of pantry and closet organization items at the Vaughan Mills HomeSense location. While this particular store isn’t as large as others on our list (it’s combined with a Winners location), we found staff to be friendly and very helpful. Just be sure to shop this location early in the day for the best selection; we found that by early evening the store becomes messy and a bit discouraging to shop through.
Newmarket (17940 Yonge St.)
When you only have one HomeSense location in your town, it has got to be a good one! The Newmarket HomeSense store at Woodland Hills Shopping Centre is a great source for a mix of items from laundry storage solutions to decorative vases to quality bedding. While the clearance selection at this store isn’t the greatest (we found most items to be damaged or missing parts,) the inventory of new merchandise was incredible. In addition to shopping through the aisles, be sure to pull pieces from the curated displays found around the store (these items are for sale too and not just for display!)
