Maison Simons opens its $30million, 115,000 square foot West Edmonton Mall store on October 31st 2012. The opening has been delayed twice already (it was supposed to open late summer 2012) and we’ve been told the store will look fabulous.

The store will include changing stalls that descend from the ceiling and photo studios allowing customers to photograph themselves in outfits to send to friends for opinions. 

The store will be located at the West-end of the mall. We have provided a floorplan of the mall, below.

The store will also include some interesting art work, differentiating the interior from competitors Holt Renfrew and Hudson’s Bay (Formerly known as The Hudson’s Bay Company). 

For those unfamiliar with Simons, its owner Peter Simons describes it as: “a junior department store with a full range of price points in apparel, accessories and home decor. It combines affordable chic with designer fashions and private label brands for men and women.”
