Lifestyle in North Toronto - "Eglinton Village"
North Toronto residents patronize the local shops and restaurants on Yonge Street, between Eglinton and Lawrence Avenues.
The mix of stores on Yonge Street is very diverse, ranging from mom and pop owner-operated stores, to international chain stores; that have added a certain lustre to the entire area.
Indoor shopping is available nearby at the Yonge and Eglinton Centre, which has recently undergone a major renovation and expansion.
The Yonge and Eglinton corridor has been coined 'Young and Eligible' due to the many bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and movie theatres, that proliferate at this intersection.
