Dufferin Mall Gets a Facelift

2006_06_14dufferinmall.jpgRenovations at Dufferin Mall are underway to “meet the needs of the community it serves.” Dufferin Mall cares about you and your shopping needs and wants to add some zest to the lives of consumers. “Dufferin Mall is re-inventing itself to deliver a youthful and vibrant shopping experience. It will soon sport a trendy look with powerful fashion stores taking the shopping experience at Dufferin Mall to new heights. The mall will transform completely in the next 7 months and will become virtually brand new. It will have a new food court, stores, floors, ceilings & washrooms. If you visit the mall you will see the transformation in the new store facades in the mall.”
With an H&M set to open this fall, we’re not so sure that “Ghetto Mall” will be a suitable nickname for our favourite mall any longer. As far as we know, the mall’s air conditioning will be pumping throughout the days of construction; you can continue to take advantage of Dufferin Mall for its cool air on those hot hot days (napping in the massage chairs is still a good idea). You won’t have to worry about going deaf due to non-stop jackhammering since “there will be no re-invention work in the mall during mall hours.”
We tend to think that Dufferin Mall will lose its unique atmosphere due to the re-invention and we’re feeling somewhat unsettled by the news. Most of the construction should be done just in time for this year’s holiday season so that you can have the pleasure of doing stress-laden shopping with throngs of bustling crowds in style.
