Oxford-Properties-managed Scarborough Town Centre in Toronto is hosting a vintage/sustainable clothing sale for the first time. Called ‘THE STREET MARKET’, the event will be held at the centre of the shopping centre on September 4th and 5th, featuring over 20 small business vendors selling a curated selection of vintage/used name-brand apparel.

“With the secondhand market set to surpass retail within a decade, events like this may become a normalized part of society over time,” said THE STREET MARKET (TSM) in a statement. 

TSM was established in December of 2019 prior to the pandemic. Following the success of its premier event, plans to host its second event in March 2020 were short-lived following the announcement of nation-wide lockdowns.

Another event held in July 24th of 2020 saw the following:

  • Gross Sales – Over $15,000
  • Transactions – Over 150
  • Attendees – Approx. 300
  • The Street Market – August 28th, 2020
  • Attendees – Approx. 350-400
  • The Street Market – October 3rd & 4th, 2020 (Weeks
  • prior to second nation-wide lockdown)
  • Attendees – Approx. 250

Scarborough Town Centre was the first major shopping centre in Canada to also host a second-hand store. In March of this year we reported that the Clarendon Trading Company had opened a storefront in the mall carrying a range of sought-after brands. 

More shopping centres are expected to welcome non-traditional tenants after Cadillac Fairview recently partnered with cannabis retailer Tokyo Smoke to open in CF malls, marking the first major shopping centre landlord with multiple locations globally to welcome on-site cannabis stores.
