There’s no word yet as to if TopShop/TopMan will open a full-sized store within Downtown Calgary’s Hudson’s Bay store or at any other suburban locations. Downtown Calgary’s Hudson’s Bay carries some collections but does not yet feature the large TopShop stores found within some other Hudson’s Bay flagships.
This is the latest popular retailer to open at Chinook Centre. Other recent additions to the mall have included J. Crew, Hugo Boss and Eileen Fisher. Nordstrom will also open its first Canadian store in the mall next year.
Chinook Centre is one of North America’s most productive malls. It sees sales of almost $1,100/square foot/year and by 2016, it is expected to have annual sales of close to $1 billion with non-anchor sales of about $1200/square foot. In addition to a recent expansion and the opening of Nordstrom, the mall will be undergoing a further expansion that will include an outdoor ‘town centre’ environment.
