Arc’teryx to Open Store at CF Toronto Eaton Centre

Vancouver-based technical apparel and equipment brand Arc’teryx will open a 3,900 square foot storefront at CF Toronto Eaton Centre this summer. Construction hoarding was installed this week in a retail space that was previously home to PLUS on the 3rd floor of the downtown Toronto shopping centre.

PLUS will be relocating within the mall to a permanent location, as per social media posts and a sign on the door. The brand originally secured the former Ann Taylor location as part of an expansion, which included stores at CF Sherway Gardens, Yorkdale and Square One. This specific location at CF Toronto Eaton Centre was constructed to utilize less than half of the overall square-footage of the space, giving the opportunity for the brand to find a more suitable storefront when it became available. We will follow up with PLUS on its future location.

With the new Arc’teryx location being on the third floor, the galleria roof construction project will have an impact of the area, including substantial infrastructure of scaffolding to be installed and used throughout the lifespan of the project. CF Toronto Eaton Centre has recently added a number of new brands to the third floor, including Moose Knuckles and Jo Malone.

The Arc’teryx location will be the 15th in the Canadian market, following the opening of a new 2,028 square foot store at CF Carrefour Laval, near Montreal, in December.

Arc’teryx, named for the Archaeopteryx Lithographica, the first reptile to develop the feather for flight, was founded in North Vancouver in 1989. Arc’teryx products are distributed through more than 2,400 retail locations worldwide and includes 115 branded stores in the chain.

We’ll be following this announcement with a store tour when the location opens this summer.
