Toronto-based TNT The New Trend will open its fifth store at Toronto’s Bayview Village Shopping Centre in September 2013. The store will be almost 5,500 square feet. TNT is an upscale larger-format clothing store with branches in Toronto and Montreal. Designer fashions are considered ‘cutting edge’ and the store includes about 350 designer labels, some with prices into the thousands.
TNT started in 1992 with a 1,200 square foot store on Toronto’s Eglington Avenue West. The current Eglington Avenue store is about 18,000 square feet and includes both women’s designer clothing, shoes and accessories. TNT has two stores at Toronto’s Hazelton Lanes Shopping Centre: a 14,000 square foot women’s store and a separate 4,000 square foot men’s store. TNT also has a 6,000 square foot women’s store location in Montreal.
Bayview Village Shopping Centre is an enclosed, upscale suburban Toronto mall lacking large ‘anchor’ stores. It includes more than 110 stores over about 440,000 square feet. It includes nine jewellery stores, an upscale grocery store called Pusateri’s, and many unique retailers found only in a few other Canadian shopping locations.
