The high end American retailer, Saks Fifth Avenue was recently purchased by the Hudson’s Bay Company. This 3 billion dollar deal will inevitably put pressure on Toronto’s existing luxury superstore, Holt Renfrew, as Saks plans to open an additional 30 stores in Canada. Saks will be initially introduced through the existing HBC Flagship location on Queen Street and it’s product offering will include luxury brands such as Prada, Gucci, Givenchy and Celine. The exact date of it’s grand opening is still unclear.
Nordstrom is finally here! With it’s grand opening just around the corner, the excitement is surely contagious. The luxury retailer will be opening its first doors in Toronto at the existing Sears location in the Eaton’s Center. “We’re excited to be coming to downtown Toronto at the Toronto Eaton Centre,” Karen McKibbin, Nordstrom Canada’s president, said in a statement. “We want to serve those who live and work downtown as well the many visitors to the city and think the Toronto Eaton Centre is a great place to do so.”
