On the exhibit’s reopening, Toronto Mayor John Tory cited that “Our city and its residents have been committed to keeping one another safe during this challenging pandemic year. Now that things are reopening, I know we’ve all been eager to get out again safely and enjoy all that Toronto has to offer. I am excited to see that the Marvel Avengers exhibit will be coming back to Yorkdale for families to enjoy. I’m looking forward to visiting this exhibit and I encourage residents to do the same.”
Yorkdale Shopping Centre Director William Correia also added that “We’re all feeling like Super Heroes after this past year. The Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. experience at Yorkdale is an ideal way for families to connect with engaging entertainment in a safe and socially distant manner. Tickets sold quickly when the exhibit was first announced, and we know that Avengers fans and ticket holders have been eagerly anticipating the opening.”
The venue will feature a timed ticketed-entry system and limited capacity. Guests will undergo a health screening upon entry and masks are mandatory at all times within the exhibit. The retail experience will feature many limited-edition items and exclusive merchandise, including a limited-edition collection of Roots apparel, including a unique range of leather jackets, bags and accessories all handcrafted in the Toronto Roots Leather Factory.
On the exhibit’s merchandise, Roots Vice President of Wholesale and Development Melinda McDonald said that “Roots is thrilled to partner with Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. experience and take part in the excitement.
