Kate Spade plans to open stores Canada-wide, according to a source at the company. Its first location outside of the Toronto area opened this spring at West Edmonton Mall. Spade’s two Toronto stores include a 4,000 square foot unit at 138 Cumberland Street in the Yorkville area, as well as a 1,620 square foot location at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Yorkdale’s Kate Spade will relocate to a space more than double that size, and we’ll provide further updates shortly. Spade also operates two Canadian outlet stores, at the Toronto Premium Outlets, and the Outlet Collection at Niagara

West Vancouver’s Park Royal has seen substantial renovations to its southern portion, recently adding retailers such as Brown’s Shoes, Anthropologie, J. Crew, and others. In the fall of 2015, Quebec-based La Maison Simons will open a 105,000 square foot store nearby. According to Park Royal Vice President, Rick Amantea, the north side will also see substantial renovations, including an upscale 45,000 square foot grocery store. 

New York City-based Kate Spade is a popular mid-priced designer label that features handbags and accessories, women’s ready-to-wear, footwear, stationery and address books, fragrances, eyewear and a home collection. Given the company’s variety of offerings, it has become referred to as a ‘lifestyle accessories and fashion brand’.
