What is the Mayfair District?

Comprised of Mayfair Mall and The Mayfair Collection, Tosa’s Mayfair District is the ultimate shopping and dining destination for visitors from near and far. 

The Mayfair Collection is a 400,000-square-foot outdoor shopping experience, and Mayfair Mall features more than 160 retailers for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Plus, the two destinations are a quick drive from each other, making it easy to stop by both during your visit.

The Shops in Mayfair Mall

Mayfair Mall is your one-stop shopping destination. Complete with big-name retailers for entertainment — including Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Peloton — there are ample options for a self-proclaimed techy or bookworm. 

If you’re looking for a whole new wardrobe (or a new item or two!), you can’t go wrong with Gap, Lululemon, Macy’s, or Nordstrom.

Bring home a memorable memento from The Container Store, Crate & Barrel, or Pottery Barn — all perfect for an at-home spring refresh, too!

Don’t forget the kids! Mayfair Mall also has a LEGO® store that’s perfect for playing and treating the kiddos to some fun while you’re out and about.

The Shops at The Mayfair Collection

As an outdoor, walkable destination, The Mayfair Collection is perfect for those days when you need some fresh air, but also have a shopping agenda. 

Explore fashion-forward stores for both men and women like DSW, Nordstrom Rack, and TJ Maxx. Ulta Beauty also has your cosmetic needs covered with its extensive selection of top beauty brands — just in case you forgot to pack your favorite product for your trip to Tosa!

Looking forward to spending your vacation time at one of Tosa’s outdoor parks? Dick’s Sporting Goods is perfect for athleticwear and outdoor gear so you don’t have to skip a beat. 

If you’re traveling to Tosa with your dog, Petsmart is open for treats, portable water bowls, toys, and much more. Enjoy your trip with your good pup to the fullest.
