Seattle-based large-format multi-brand retailer Nordstrom has removed most of its men’s luxury brands from the retailer’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre store in Toronto. Formerly, brands such as Balenciaga and Valentino were available in the store.
Burberry and Comme des Garçons continue to be carried at the Yorkdale Nordstrom location, with Burberry occupying an area with a dedicated wall space.
Nordstrom also pulled most men’s luxury brands from its CF Toronto Eaton Centre store as well — the Vancouver flagship Nordstrom store is now the only one in Canada with a substantial roster of high-end men’s ready-to-wear. The Vancouver Nordstrom store is said to be the top performing location in Canada by far for the retailer.
Yorkdale’s Holt Renfrew store continues to carry a very robust assortment of men’s luxury brands including a mix of wholesale offerings as well as concession spaces for brands such as Fendi, Dior, Gucci and others.
