  • Not the a very busy mall, but you can find some good enough deals, the bay is ok, the food court is ok. Over all good.  more »
  • I was surprised to find the Pickering Town Centre nowhere near crowded on a Saturday in November. We don't come here as much as before, mainly because of the expansion and renovations at the Oshawa Ce...  more »

  • Fresh sampling available welcomes shoppers throughout the store. Sales offer reasonable pricing and good value. Ready made food is available with a variety of selection to satisfy all cravings. Soups are to die for and you save $1 if you buy them cold and heat them up at home! Alcoholic beverages are also now available which helps with convenience shopping.
  • Loved the Pickering Town Centre. Something about it that sets it apart from the other Town Centers. Right amount of shops and restaurants. Much less crowded. Loved spending an entire day shopping and eating. The roof allows lots of natural light inside the entire mall making it feel a lot more open and spacious.
  • Honestly; there isn't much here anymore... There is a large amount of stores that are closed. Most big box stores have left or are shutting down - the smaller stores look cheap and have disposable clothing. However it's does have a decent food court if you're looking to grab a quick bite. But overall of you drove 20 minutes in either direction on the 401 you would hit either the Scarborough Town centre or the Oshawa Centre and have a better experience.
  • Something about this mall can give me the creeps. On the one hand i am stuck in the early 2000s. Some good stores like Aldo and Hudson's bay (but then again what mall doesn't have one if its big) are here. Food court has a decent selection of restaurants and has a lot of seating areas. On the other hand its really dead. You will wonder if you have gone to a mall that is shutting down. It's big and looks like a nicer mall on the outside, but it crushes your hope almost instantly in some areas. Basically it is okay. I would not go out of my way to be here. The stores are so outdated. Even shoppers drug mart is stuck in 2005.
  • Of all the shopping centres in the Durham Region, the Pickering Town Centre is my favorite. I love the variety of stores and the overall vibe of the mall. The food court has a great selection of food (the best is Bawarchi Kabob). Also,the new Santa castle is beautiful and magical. My children were in awe of it. If I could make two suggestions, it would be that the family washrooms were monitored more often. We frequently see people (with no children with them) going into and using these bathrooms. We have spoken to security about it numerous times, and are hoping that they will be watching the bathrooms more often. Also, the mall would greatly benefit from a makeover of the movie theatre. Overall, our family prefers this mall much more than the Oshawa centre.
