The expansion's second level also features dining experience Gourmet Fare, replacing the mall's south-end food court. The former food court, as well as the wing around the former Sporting Life store, will be overhauled for Toronto's third Nordstrom location. The 138,000 square foot Nordstrom is set to open at the end of March, 2017.

Saks Fifth Avenue is scheduled to open a 132,000 square foot store on February 25, 2016, in part of Sherway Gardens' former 225,000 square foot Sears space. Saks will also feature a food hall operated by Pusateri's Fine Foods.
