Saks Fifth Avenue Heads to Western Canada
- Jun 01, 2016
Calgary, Alberta—Saks Fifth Avenue has revealed plans to open its third Canadian location in Calgary in January 2018.
The two-level, 115,000-square-foot store will be housed within Cadillac Fairview’s CF Chinook Centre and will feature a wide assortment of products, including women’s designer, contemporary, ready-to-wear, men’s, beauty, jewelry, shoes and handbags. The Calgary location will also offer customers a full-service Fifth Avenue Club featuring private suites and personal shopping consultants.
Saks Fifth Avenue opened its first Canada location on February 18 at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, followed by CF Sherway Gardens on February 25. Both stores feature select brand offerings such as Dior, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Stella McCartney.
These openings follow the debut of Saks OFF 5TH, Saks Fifth Avenue’s lower-priced sister brand, in Canada in May 2015.
“Following our incredibly successful entry into Canada earlier this year, we are excited to bring Saks Fifth Avenue to Western Canada in 2018,” Marc Metrick, president of Saks Fifth Avenue, said in a prepared statement. “Our strategy is to opportunistically open new stores where we have the customer, the right location and we are able to deliver a consistent Saks brand edit, focused on modern fashion. Calgary, specifically the CF Chinook Centre, fits these criteria and is a logical next step in our Canadian expansion.”
