Saks Fifth Avenue has launched a Canadian website, featuring renderings of its first two Canadian stores. Although the website is fairly minimal, it provides a glamorous web presence for the retailer’s Canadian brick-and-mortar entry, expected as early as next February.
Featuring Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha, the Canadian Saks site provides renderings of Saks stores at Toronto Eaton Centre and at Toronto’s Sherway Gardens. Both locations are currently under construction.
Saks’ 150,000 square foot Toronto Eaton Centre store will span four levels on the eastern side of the Queen Street Hudson’s Bay building Its concourse level will feature a 25,000 square foot grocery floor to be operated by Pusateri’s Fine Foods, while its top three levels will be dedicated to fashion and accessories. We recently wrote an extensive article on how the store will be configured, including a ground-floor restaurant and valet parking on Richmond Street.
Saks’ 130,000 square foot Sherway Gardens store will be located in part of the retail space formerly occupied by Sears. We’re awaiting further details on the store’s layout, and it’s confirmed that Pusateri’s Fine Foods will also operate a roughly 25,000 square foot grocery department at Saks’ Sherway location.
Saks has also started advertising management jobs for Saks in Canada. All are in Toronto.
