Holt Renfrew will also be expanded, as we previously reported. It will be one of Holt's largest stores at about 120,000 square feet. The Holt's expansion will open early 2013.
"The line will open at 2 p.m. for an opportunity to play Xbox Kinect with Wayne Gretzky at 6 p.m. at the Microsoft store (details at Microsoft’s Facebook page). The first 200 customers in line for the store, which opens at 9:15 a.m., will also receive two wristbands to attend the Microsoft concert, featuring the band Train, on Nov. 17 at 5 p.m. on the Yorkdale upper level parking deck, and will meet the band. The next 1,500 in line will get tickets to the show."
