Finally, a long weekend to celebrate the warm weather! Victoria Day weekend is upon us and that means three whole days of basking in the sunshine and having fun with friends. Whether you’re up at the cottage or planning a relaxing weekend in your own backyard, Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers are here to help.
Buy the supplies
First things first, you need to purchase the necessities. Crowds are brutal during long weekend hours, so plan ahead and shop for what you need throughout the week. Pro tip: head to the LCBO in Royal Bank Plaza the Monday or Tuesday before to grab your favourite beer before it runs out!
Grocery shopping is another must-do before the long weekend rush hits. Regardless of whether you’re staying in or heading up north, you’ll want a full fridge to avoid having to retrieve anything over the weekend. Head to MetroCentre Marketplace for a great selection on tasty snacks, refreshing fruits and plenty of fluids. You can also pop into Gateway Newstand down the hall for any quick supplies you need on the go.
Protect your skin
Summer is just around the corner and so are those long-awaited sunburns. To keep your skin in tip top shape, make sure to stock up on plenty of sunscreen and after-sun skincare. You can head into Rexall in MetroCentre or Shoppers Drug Mart in Royal Bank Plaza for a wide range of sun protection, making sure to purchase more than you need. Trust me, whatever you don’t use you’ll make use of over the course of the summer.
If you’re looking to invest a little more, Consonant Skincare in Richmond-Adelaide Centre has a variety of topical solutions to help protect, repair and revitalize your skin. Their ingredients are tried, tested and true so they’re a safe bet if you’re looking for the best in quality skincare. We recommend their customizable CMP Kit for the ultimate in sun protection!
Find some comfy clothes
The beauty in long weekends is the ability to spend three whole days in your comfiest clothes. If your sweats are looking a little worse for wear, head to Reitmans in MetroCentre and browse through some of their cozy apparel. You may even want to check out their Hyba line of activewear, in case you’re planning on taking full advantage of the warm weather with an adventure!
For pyjamas, you can always trust Calvin Klein to deliver the best in quality and comfort. Relax into your vacation with their cotton sleepwear and under garments, perfect for the rising temperatures.
Once you’ve completed your shopping, you’re all set! Pick up a few magazines from Richmond-Adelaide Centre’s International News and a few coffees from Starbucks and you’re ready to hit the road! With the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, you don’t have to worry too much about the details and just focus on enjoying your free time with the family!
