Canada Goose announced plans to open six new stores with two in Europe, one in the United States and three in Canada. Set to open in fall/winter 2019, Canada Goose said the new stores highlight the increasing demand both at home and internationally for the brand.
“Success in retail is about more than just selling things – it’s about helping people find the perfect product, while delivering exceptional service and creating a memorable experience. Canada Goose stores deliver on that and more,” said Dani Reiss, president and CEO, Canada Goose. “In addition to growing our footprint in Asia, expanding in Europe and broadening our presence in North America enables our fans to explore all of our collections in a unique and engaging environment and discover the story behind our products, unfiltered.”
Canada Goose will open its first store in Italy on Via della Spiga in Milan’s Fashion District. Featuring an Arctic-inspired mid-century environment, the store will combine design elements of both Canadian and Italian heritage. In Paris, the new store will be located on Rue St. Honoré. In the U.S., Canada Goose will open its fifth location in Minneapolis, MN at Mall of America. Each of these stores will feature a ‘Cold Room’, the brand’s acclaimed shopping experience where shoppers can test out Canada Goose products in the environments for which they were created.
In Canada, the brand will open three new locations to serve its growing home market. Its second Toronto location will be at CF Sherway Gardens, a luxury shopping mall located west of the downtown core. In Alberta, Canada Goose will open a new store in West Edmonton Mall, the largest shopping mall in North America, which will also include a ‘Cold Room’. Additionally, Canada Goose will open at Cascade Shops in Banff, Canada’s most visited national park, a leading international tourist destination, and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
