East of this, west of that
They did a nice job on the Simons in downtown Ottawa. Shame they can't seem to find a site in downtown Toronto.

Did the space that was intended for Target down on Harbour ever get leased? That was around the right size......

Another opportunity might Atrium on Bay which as I recollect had some sort of plan as part of their office tower expansion to turn one/two floors of offices into part of the retail mix.

A bit on the large side......but I also wonder what HBC will do w/its Bloor St. location........it's old and tired.....but would not be a cheap fix......

Does Simons advertise much? I have not seen/heard one ad for them in any form (print/tv/radio/online) in Toronto yet

La Maison Simons Adds Second-Hand Luxury Goods Departments to Stores

Sept 22, 2020

Simons struck a partnership with luxury resellers LXRandCO and VSP Consignment on the initiative, which last week saw new collections rolled out at Simons’ stores at Place Ste-Foy in Quebec City, downtown Montreal, Square One in Mississauga, and at CF Rideau Centre in Ottawa.

Bag and accessory brands carried at those Simons stores as well as online include Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, Hermès, and others. Women’s apparel brands include names such as Versace, Sonia Rykiel, John Galliano, Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, and Jean Paul Gaultier, among others.

Still nothing for Toronto:

“Honestly, we don’t have anything in Toronto or Vancouver in the works right now but we’re always staying abreast of what’s going on, seeing the redevelopment projects that are happening. We never really had the ambition to grow just for growth’s sake. It was always kind of a thoughtful growth. So that will continue."
