While you’re visiting Richmond Hill, shopping is one of the afternoon activities you’ll definitely want to partake in before you leave. Located just north of Toronto, Richmond Hill has some of the best shopping areas in the GTA. One of these shopping centres is Times Square, located at 550 Highway 7.

If you’ve never been to Times Square in Richmond Hill before, here’s a little more of what you can expect from this shopping centre.
A Unique Environment Times Square in Richmond Hill is one of the largest Asian shopping malls in the area, so that means it comes with a unique culture to set it apart from many other shopping centres. Here you’ll find so many independently owned Asian stores, restaurants and bakeries, and very few chain or franchised stores.
Easily Accessible This mall is located at the intersection of Leslie and Highway 7, so despite it being such a busy area this also means it’s an incredibly accessible area. There are lots of public transit routes that pass by the area, plus there’s sufficient parking for those who drive here.
Great Food While people usually come to a mall for the shopping, here you’ll find some really amazing cultural eats. There are places to pick up some fantastic Dim Sum, Vietnamese food and even some Northern Chinese restaurants. During lunch time, and on the weekends you’ll find the food court and restaurants are much busier, so you’ll want to make sure you leave enough time to get the food you’re looking for!

From cosmetics to jewelry, optometrists to dentists and everything in between you’ll find exactly what you need at this mall.

You can take the afternoon to wander around the mall, browse through the stores and you might find a few things you didn’t even know you were looking for.
It’s more than just shopping here though, too: there are dentist offices, optometrist offices and wellness stores. If you’re looking for a new haircut, or if you happen to need a lawyer – they’ve got that too. It’s not just about cosmetics and clothes, there’s something here for everyone to enjoy.
Spending some time in Richmond Hill almost always means you’ll be doing some shopping – there’s lots of great shopping areas for everyone to enjoy.
