Hidden Gems

By The CORE, Apr 28


When it comes to The CORE Shopping Centre, we know you come here for the great shopping, delicious food, free Sunday fitness classes, and exciting new events we take on every month. But did you know that we have a lot more to offer that may have passed you by? We’ve listed some of our hidden gems around the mall that you may not have heard about or seen. Take a peek and find out!

 

1.Indoor Playground: While a portion of the gardens are closed, the children's playground remains open. Located on level 4, this play space is perfect for the little ones! And for a sweet treat for your little sweeties, swing by Froshberg Gelato, which happens to be right beside the playground.

 

2. Phone Chargers: The Guest Services desk located on the third floor will rent out portable phone chargers for free. All you need is government issued photo ID, and you’re good to shop until you drop - without having to worry about your battery dying.

3Style & Beauty Bar: Want a little makeup lesson or tips and tricks on keeping your skin safe, healthy and glowing? Our Style & Beauty Bar may be for you. Pop by and book an appointment for yourself or a group of friends. We also heard you get a bonus $25 CORE gift card with your booking. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

4. Land and Sea: If you’re looking for cute and quirky gifts, look no further. Land and Sea has virtually everything you need for gifts. Do you need essential oils? Baby soothers? A necklace? Books? Cooking utensils? Land and Sea has got it all, so don’t let the small store front fool you.

5. Café Ève in Simons: There is a great cafe located inside the new Simons store. It’s called Café Ève, and you can grab a great cup of coffee, lunch or something sweet to eat. Find it behind the Maison section on level 2. 

6. Mangoland: Feeling like you want to take a vacation? Well how about something that will taste like you’re on a beach somewhere tropical? Mangoland is our newest addition and it’s packed with flavour! Whether you like something spicy, sweet or salty, Mangoland has got your taste buds covered. And the bonus is - these treats are healthy too!

7. Eye Checkups: Need to get your eyes checked? Lenscrafters is one of our newest stores and it comes with double the perks! Hidden inside is CORE Eye Care, ready to help you with your next eye checkup. After, Lenscrafters can help you find the perfect pair of frames and lenses too. It's your one-stop eye shop.

8. Key Cutting: Things Engraged has finally opened it's doors on level 2. This great new shop has finally opened up as of a few weeks ago, and it’s Things Engraved. While you can grab beautiful frames, keychains and engrave anything you like, they also have a key cutting service that you may not have known about!

9.Tableside Caesar Salad: Do you know where to get the best Caesar salad in town? Well, we do and we’ll share our little secret. Hy’s Steakhouse offers a tableside Caesar salad. Let them know exactly how you like it and you’ll be in salad heaven.

10.Valet Parking: Did you know the CORE offers free valet service! That's right, just pull up to valet on 3rd Street S.W. between 7th and 8th Avenue S.W. and they'll park your car free of charge. All you pay is the parking rate at the time. And don't forget, after 4pm and on weekends, parking if free for the first three hours, with only a $2 flatrate thereafter.
