Everything We Know About Eataly Toronto So Far
In case you hadn’t heard the blessed news, Italian marketplace Eataly is opening its first Canadian location in Toronto. If you’ve always wanted to go to Italy but aren’t into the long plane ride, Eataly Toronto is where you need to be.
Wondering when you can expect to shop all the Italian treats and eats? Here’s what we know so far!
The Store Is Slated To Open Later This Year
Eataly has been super hush-hush about the store opening but we finally have an idea of when we can expect to shop all of our gourmet Italian essentials. It was first said that Eataly would open its doors in early 2019 but we all know that huge developments can take longer than expected. But there’s good news! Manulife Centre has confirmed that it will finally open late 2019 — perfect timing for the holiday season.
It’s All Happening On Bloor Street

It seems that Bloor Street is becoming home to all the gourmet grocery stores. Eataly is set to open its 50,000-square foot inside Manulife Centre. Now, not only can you shop all the latest fashions at Over the Rainbow, browse the books at Indigo, but soon you can shop up a storm at Eataly!
This Ain’t Your Regular Supermarket
