Luxury Fashion Brand ‘St. John’ to Open Mink Mile Storefront

September 13, 2019

By Craig Patterson

US-based women’s luxury fashion brand St. John Knits will open a standalone storefront on Toronto’s Mink Mile. It will be the second standalone St. John boutique in Canada, joining a Vancouver store that has operated in the city for years.

The Toronto St. John boutique will open in a 2,500 square foot retail space at 130 Bloor Street West, located between Gucci and Intermix. The space that St. John will move into was once occupied by French luxury brand Hermes before it relocated to a flagship space nearby in late 2017. Most recently, athletic brand Peloton occupied the same retail space temporarily before finding a permanent location across the street.

Harry Rosen Launches 1st-of-its-Kind Canada Goose Shop-in-Store [Photos]

October 15, 2019

By Craig Patterson

Toronto-based luxury menswear retailer Harry Rosen has launched a first for North America Canada Goose concept shop at the retailer’s Bloor Street flagship. The partner shop is part of an effort by Harry Rosen to maintain the presence of the highly lucrative Canada Goose brand in its stores at a time when Canada Goose is opening direct-to-consumer stores while at the same time pulling out of some multi-brand retailers.

ba&sh has opened at Yorkville Village - looks like some sort of partnership with TNT. It's in the old TNT Man space.

Departo, a luxury home furnishings brand by Yabu Pushelburg, is opening a shop at the Hazelton Hotel (in the former goop space)

Rejuuv Yorkville is opening in the ground floor at 135 Yorkville, beside CNTRBND

Couple Lab Grown Diamonds is opening a pop-up in the old Michael Kors space on Bloor

Part of the old UGG shop on St. Thomas looks to be making way for something called Enigma Fine Dining

Renos to the TD Bank at Bay & Bloor are now complete. You can probably see this from outer space.

According to an employee, the Dollarama in Charles Promenade has received a one year extension, so they will be leaving in 2021.
Anyone know what the plans are? Is the UofT gonna take down the promenade and build up a new podium (they should)?

dollarama will have a long, lonely stay in that spot.

They have filed for a minor variance for the upgrades. Some elevation updates, infilling a bit of the plaza at the corner of Balmuto and Charles, and the removal of the interior hallway and reconfiguration of the retail units to face out onto Charles.

They also have a much more substantial longer-term play with the property, but that's many years into the future and not particularly high up on their real estate portfolio priority list, but is nonetheless on there.

I don't know about outer space but I can see this from my apartment. Hello, you missed a spot!

On the off chance they have really missed, that, you might want to be nice to them and point that out before they leak all over the place.
