Celebrating 40 Years of Forever, A Retrospective Exhibit
Sherway Gardens' Gallery In The Garden Retrospective Exhibit Until February 26.
- (1888PressRelease) January 28, 2011 - Sherway Gardens (HWY 427 & QEW) is celebrating their 40th anniversary with a special Gallery in the Garden Retrospective Exhibit which illustrates, through photos and archival newspaper clippings, the history of Sherway Gardens since its grand opening in 1971. It will be on display until Saturday, February 26 in the corridor at door 3. For more information call 416-621-1070 or visit www.sherwaygardens.ca
Exhibit photo panels document how Sherway Gardens has changed over the years with the addition of the 1987 Holt Renfrew wing, and the Brettons wing (now the Sporting Life wing) in 1989. At the time of the Bretton's wing addition, the original picnic court called Gourmet Fair, was moved to its current location on a second level. Its signature Teflon-coated fibreglass tented roof structure earned a Canadian Consulting Engineering award of merit for its design and is still a widely recognized landmark on the Etobicoke skyline.
SHERWAY GARDENS - STYLE FOREVER
Fashion and lifestyle are synonymous with Sherway Gardens. Sherway's commitment to style and fashion has evolved with the times, trends and tastes of fashion-conscious clients and retailers.
This exhibit features samples of award-winning advertising campaigns and fashion ads from the last four decades. Sherway Gardens continues to commit to its fashion brand with industry icons such as Holt Renfrew, Michael Kors, Coach, Harry Rosen and relative new-comers to the Canadian market such as Scotch & Soda, Hollister & Abercrombie & Fitch.

The innovative BREATHE GREEN initiative was introduced at Sherway in July 2007. This landmark first step was implemented to provide a cleaner, healthier environment for both customers and employees. In keeping with the commitment to providing a "best in class" shopping experience, which includes a clean and safe environment, smoking is prohibited anywhere on Sherway Gardens' property.
