Lifestyle in Wallace Emerson
The Bloordale Village Business Improvement Area holds a major community street festival in July called Big On Bloor which showcases the eclectic mix of international restaurants and artists that proliferate in this area.
The Dufferin Mall at Bloor and Dufferin Streets, and the Galleria Shopping Centre located on the south-east corner of Dufferin and Dupont Streets, both include department stores, small retail shops and medical and dental offices. Together these two shopping centres provide a strong shopping base for Wallace Emerson residents.
Street shopping is also available at the intersections of Wallace and Landsdowne Avenues, and at the recently revitalized Dufferin and Dupont area. There are also a fair number of variety stores that are conveniently dispersed throughout this neighbourhood.
