Boathouse to Open at CF Toronto Eaton Centre in the Fall

The Ontario-based fashion retailer will be moving into Toronto’s downtown core again and taking a high-traffic location in the CF Toronto Eaton Centre.

Boathouse closed its long-time location at the corner of Yonge & Edward Streets pre-pandemic. Being steps from Yonge Dundas Square gave the brand curb-appeal, but the decision to close the store didn’t mean that they were exiting the market entirely. That location in The Atrium has since opened as a West 49.

Fast forward to March 2021 when Retail Insider helped to break the news that Boathouse and Blackwell Supply Company would be expanding into a number of closing or announced-to-be-closing Le Chateau leases and the question came up about the Toronto Eaton Centre.

With the help of a Linkedin post from Janet Weatherhead, Director of Sales and Operations for Boathouse/Blackwell Supply Company, the brand can share that they are indeed moving into the 2nd level location that was recently vacated Le Chateau. The store is scheduled to open in September 2021.

We will be bringing more announcements from the Toronto Eaton Centre, as the property will be announcing a number of new tenants as shopping centres begin to re-open and move into full capacity in Ontario.
