Preview: Hudson's Bay Sherway Gardens Renovation

Major Renovation Nearing Completion

Mall entrance featuring new Hudson's Bay signage

The Hudson's Bay Sherway Gardens location has been undergoing significant renovations as part of a broader mall renovation and expansion. In the coming years Sherway Gardens will grow significantly, adding new retailers, restaurants, a parking garage, as well as a new Nordstrom store opening in 2016.

The new women's accessories department

Hudson's Bay is incorporating many of the design elements also being used at their Yorkdale and Queen Street locations which are also under renovation. Ceilings are being raised with bright new lights installed; floors are glossy and smooth; and the finishes are high end and modern.

Fragrance department
New cosmetics counters are currently being installed and the fragrance department has undergone a complete rethink. Locked glass showcases have been replaced with open sell units and freestanding display stands.

Topshop and Topman opening this fall

As part of a continued roll-out of the Topshop/Topman brands a dedicated shop-in-shop will open this fall with direct access via the mall.

Men's denim brands on the main level
Main level

Selected menswear is moving to the main level, joining women's shoes, accessories, and cosmetics. The second level now features women's fashions, but is still largely unrenovated.

New bed and bath shop on the lower level
All home accessories have been relocated to the lower level where you will also find men's suiting, accessories, and a newly expanded men's shoe department.

Gift Registry and china department
An official opening for the main level is scheduled for later this fall, and mall renovations will continue through to 2016.

In a related note, Sherway Gardens has officially announced an extension to store hours. Beginning September 28th, the mall will extend its Saturday closing to 9 p.m.
