Real estate giants Simon Property Group and Calloway Real Estate Investment Trust are opening a huge outlet mall on August 1 in Halton Hills, about an hour’s drive from downtown. Along with the first Hudson’s Bay outlet store, Toronto Premium Outlets will also have the first Canadian discount locations of several big-name brands, including Kate Spade New York, DKNY and Restoration Hardware.  In all, the mall will have about 85 stores, with plans for a second phase of construction when some of the luxury brands just now arriving in Canada are ready to open discount offshoots. Between Halton Hills and Tanger Factory Outlets’s plans to expand their Cookstown outlet centre, Torontonians could soon see the end of a long-standing tradition of cross-border shopping.

    There is already a J.Crew outlet in Vaughan Mills.

    I doubt this will end cross border shopping. If the arrival of Target and other US based stores are any indication, prices will probably still be higher.

    This article isn’t accurate. The first DKNY outlet store opened at Vaughan Mills a couple months ago. Also, I don’t see how this mall will change cross border shopping, pretty sure Vaughan Mills has almost all these brands.

    this would NOT be first ever Hudson’s Bay outlet store .. HBC used to have an outlet on Dundas St in Etobicoke

    Please Toronto: Stay home to shop. There is nothing for you @ this new mall and you’re gumming up my 401!!!

    I have shop at Premium Outlets in the US in the winter months & prices for Coach, American Eagle, Children’s Place, are comparable Columbia is much better in the US & the Hudson Bay Outlet is amazing…definitely worth stopping in…& don’t forget Lindt. Also Nike’s back wall has some great finds & Bench has a great clearance section :)
