Retail Insider has confirmed that Toronto-based Peace Collective will be opening a flagship location in The Historic Distillery District in Toronto.
The clothing brand shuttered its long-term Ossington location on June 13th, in which the retailer had called home since 2016.
The Distillery District location will be taking over the former Desigual location at 7 Trinity Street. Retail Insider covered Desigual back in 2014 to discuss its Canadian expansion, which saw the brand open at West Edmonton Mall, Premium Outlets Montreal and Bayshore in Ottawa in partnership with J.Michaels. Fast forward to the retail climate of 2021 and a lease expiry, 7 Trinity became available.
“We’re excited to have Peace Collective be part of our growing retail offering at The Distillery District,” said Elena Price, General Manager at the Distillery District. “We pride ourselves on offering our guests unique, quality products and services — many of which are made right here on site or locally in Toronto — which makes Peace Collective the perfect fit.”
Peace Collective will be partnering with a food-service brand to create a destination within the district that will add to it’s already unique offering, which we covered in our March 2021 Photo Tour.
If you’re interested in being part of the opening team in The Distillery District, the Careers page at Peace-Collective.com has a number of positions available. Assistant Store Manager, Key Lead (Sales & In-Store Marketing), Stock, and Sales.
We’ll be circling back with this project as construction commences and the store goes from blueprints to their grand opening.
