After a long day of hydro issues, power at Yorkdale Shopping Centre has been completely restored. 

The mall, located near Allen Road and Highway 401, first experienced the outage around 9:45 a.m. Saturday — about 15 minutes after doors opened.

The outage completely shut down power at the mall and forced stores to close for several hours. 

Toronto Hydro originally said power would be restored by 1 p.m., but later said the fix would take longer than expected. 

The issues were fully resolved around 5:30 p.m.
