Tumi will open its first free-standing Toronto store at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The store will be almost 1,300 square feet and will be located between Birks jewelers and Thomas Sabo. We expect the store will open some time in September.
It could technically be Canada’s first Tumi store, as the one we reported on in Vancouver will be a combined Tumi and Rimowa retailer.
For those unfamiliar, Tumi is a New Jersey-based manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of travel bags and accessories. It has more recently branched into the lucrative handbag retail market. Tumi has over 120 stores worldwide and over 200 shop-in-store locations.
Tumi products are also available at various Canadian retailers including Betty Hemmings, Harry Rosen, Holt Renfrew and Taschen! stores.
