Quebec City-based large format retailer La Maison Simons has announced the opening date of its first Greater Toronto Area store at Mississauga’s Square One next month. Two more Toronto Simons locations will open before the end of the decade. 

The Square One Simons location will open to the public the morning of Wednesday, March 17. The 106,660 square foot  store will occupy retail space in part of Square One’s former Sears location. Oxford Properties-owned Square One is seeing an overhaul which will include new retailers as well as a considerable amount of new retail space. A southwest mall expansion will house new Harry Rosen and Holt Renfrew flagships as well as several smaller upscale retailers in a ‘luxury wing’ which will also open to the public this spring. 

Simons’ CEO Peter Simons recently revealed that the company will open two more Toronto stores — a Scarborough Town Centre location in 2018, as well as a Yorkdale Shopping Centre store in 2019. 

Simons currently operates 11 stores in Canada. Of those, nine are in the province of Quebec, while two are in Western Canada — a West Edmonton Mall location opened in August of 2012, and West Vancouver’s Park Royal store opened mid-October of 2015. The company also just revealed that it secured a former Target location in Quebec City, where it will almost double its presence in the mall.
