This mall is next to the TTC subway & bus stop and is popular with female (older) shoppers. Therefore, it features “boutique” higher-end clothing, jewellery-accessories, optical, and intimate apparel—not casual /children’s stores. There is no food court but restaurants/cafes (N-S and W) besides Loblaws supermarket with covered parking. However, some seating has been removed, aside from permanent fixtures nearer Pusateri’s / washrooms. Like at other Toronto area malls, a lot of vendors have not done well esp. due to past health-related closures; and on-site library shutdown has meant no regular visits by mothers with young kids. Prices remain higher—in the central Shoppers Drug Mart, too. Still, salons and dental offices manage to operate on the top/bottom (N/S parking-access) levels, although numerous independent stores have gone out of business. Increasingly, indoor dining near Tabule (Lebanese) keep leaving…resulting in far less options than Fairview’s food court / offices or vast retail / restaurants at Yorkdale mall. On the North side, there’s makeshift covered patio dining labelled Bayview Village ‘Haute’, parking/curb-side but at least safely outdoors. However, management doesn’t seem to enforce mask requirements indoors, and I didn’t see many seniors shopping. Hopefully, storekeepers will make a quick recovery with the ongoing public health measures…and Mastermind toys might hang on for families after Chapters’ Indigo bookstore, now gone. Bayview Village is not bustling like before—especially recollecting age-old pictures with Santa !
