We are committed to offering an elevated experience and that means personal assistance from the moment they enter our parking lots,” says Mina Barbuto, Marketing Director, Yorkdale Shopping Centre. “Our parking concierges are returning to guide vehicles to available spaces leading up to Christmas.

This year, Santa Claus is making an appearance at his brand-new chalet, located near Sporting Life and RH. This traditional yet stylish place is open for Santa photos or selfies, and is the perfect place to grab those “Instagrammable” moments. The best part yet is that with every picture posted on social media, Yorkdale promises to donate $1 to SickKids — just make sure to use the hashtag #SantasChaletYKD!

Shoppers can expect lots of fun events going on here, like Sensitive Santa with Autism Ontario and three pet photo nights.
