Upscale retailer TNT The New Trend has just opened its newest (and smallest) store at Toronto’s Bayview Village. It’s about 5,500 square feet. We first reported on this store’s opening in April. It will be TNT’s fifth store, following other Toronto and Montreal store locations.
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.
TNT’s Hazelton Lanes store will see some changes as the mall prepares to expand and renovate for more luxury retailers.
