Retail industry news delivered directly to you. Subscribe to Retail-Insider.

Retail Insider resumes our annual tradition of sharing holiday photos of Canadian shopping centres for 2022. Both landlords and merchants have rolled out the red carpet for holiday shoppers and the staff at Retail Insider wanted to share their efforts for those on a mission as they plow through their Christmas shopping, those who haven’t seen their favourite retail haunts over the holiday season for a while, or for those who like to thumb through festive holiday photos like we do!

This instalment of the ‘Holiday Photo Series’ takes us to Durham Region’s community hub, Pickering Town Centre.

At over 700,000 square feet, The shopping centre boasts over 140 stores and services, six dine-in restaurants, 15 food court vendors and a Cineplex VIP theatre. Located at Kingston Rd. and Liverpool Rd. in Pickering, Ontario., the shopping centre is readily accessible by highway 401 and GO Transit – connected by a footbridge over the highway.

First unveiled in 2017, Santa’s Ice Castle is the focal point of the mall’s holiday decor. Designed by Studio Artefact, the Castle was created to resemble a winter palace. This magical display is a popular attraction for everyone visiting Pickering Town Centre throughout the holiday season.

The Castle is home to special events, such as Baby’s First Christmas, Silent Santa and popular with guests for Pet Photos with Santa. The installation is one of the most successful holiday experiences in Canada, driving traffic growth each year.
