Yorkdale Mall announces its expansion is almost complete, proves it is not the Yorkdale Mall of yesterday

Yorkdale made a big announcement today, sharing the news that its planned 145,000-square-foot expansion will be completed by Nov. 15. Among the 30 stores set to open are Ted Baker London, Kate Spade New York, Tesla Motors, Ann Taylor, Diesel, Wilfred Boutique, The North Face, an exclusive Rolex boutique at Raffi Jewellers, and Ta-ze and Joey restaurants. Holt Renfrew, Lacoste and Club Monaco will move to  larger locations within the expansion, and Loft will open in late 2012. The transformation of Yorkdale is a bit shocking—it has gone from an average mall with an Orange Julius and a Rainforest Café to the glistening, Vegas-like gauntlet of high-end shops we know today. What’s next: a roller coaster and an aquarium?
