With more than 50 million annual visitors, CF Toronto Eaton Centre is a destination unlike any other shopping centre in North America. 

 

"When people think of iconic tourist destinations, they think of CF Toronto Eaton Centre and when people think about iconic Torontonians, they think of Drake and the OVO brand," said Sheila Jennings, General Manager, CF Toronto Eaton Centre. "The two joining forces makes total sense and launching on the weekend of the Caribbean Carnival is also perfect—the city’s vibe is fun, and electric, and we’re proud to be a part of the experience with this great Canadian brand."

We are proud to announce our newest retail location will open in the iconic Eaton Centre this OVO Fest Weekend. For us this is a dream come true," said Oliver El-Khatib, co-founder of OVO.

 

OVO Eaton Centre will be approximately 2,700 square feet and features a Calacatta Volakas facade and interior columns imported from Portugal. Matte black steel fixtures with Nero Marquina marble stone plinths and cash desk sourced from Italy.
