Toronto-based cult-favourite Craig’s Cookies announced on Instagram Thursday that it would be opening its fifth retail location this fall at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The 1,200 square foot storefront will be located in a retail space vacated last year by NYX Cosmetics.
The location is prime being at the end of a hallway that leads to the mall’s TTC subway station. A Roots store is located immediately north and a busy Starbucks is located across the way.
It will be the fifth location for Craig’s Cookies which was founded in 2013. Founder Craig Pike has developed over 85 flavours of the over-the-top cookies which burst with chocolate and other sweet fillings. The brand’s first Toronto location opened in the city’s Parkdale area and was followed by locations on Church Street in Toronto’s Gay Village, on Bayview Avenue in Leaside, and most recently on Queen Street East in Leslieville.
Yorkdale has been adding various food and beverage offerings to the shopping centre since the beginning of the pandemic, including Danish Pastry House and a Chinese restaurant called Yu near the mall’s RH store. The centre continues to diversify its offerings which also includes the most comprehensive clustering of standalone luxury brand stores anywhere in Canada.
