Saks Fifth Avenue‘s off-price division Saks OFF 5TH will open its first Western Canadian location at Calgary’s CrossIron Mills. Opening in September of 2016, the 30,000 square foot store is the fourth Canadian location confirmed by Saks, which plans to operate up to 25 OFF 5TH locations in Canada over the next five years and open as many as eight locations in 2016. 

The store will reflect OFF 5TH’s redesigned aesthetic, which features an open and modern layout. The store will carry more than 800 brands, according to Saks. New arrivals will be shipped to the store daily.
