Eaton Centre, one of the largest malls of Toronto, has announced to give up its ritual and keep its doors completely open on the Easter Sunday holiday. Toronto Eaton Centre assured in an official announcement that it will remain open for five hours regardless of the constitutional holiday starting next March as the shoppers are likely to take a worldly view of formal religious holidays.
Meredith Vlitas, the Marketing Director of Eaton Centre, informed the media claiming that she wants the consumers to be the one deciding whether they want to visit the mall on Easter Sunday or not. She pointed out that, since the mal is designated as tourist destination, it is exempted of city rules asking retailers to open on statutory holidays.
According to Vlitas, the mall has finally decided on the long-considered issue after gathering all sorts of input and advice from its tenants, neighboring communities and shoppers themselves. She asserted that the city caters a very large community worshiping an extremely versatile range of religions, so general public shall not be restrained to spend their cash at the mall on specific holidays. Vlitas stated that “Toronto being one of the most diverse cities in the world, many treat the current religious holidays as secular statutory holidays and celebrate a variety of other religions events on many occasions throughout the year.” She said that “as strong advocates of consumer choice, Toronto Eaton Centre believes that consumers should ultimately determine where and when they can shop.”
