The 27,000 square foot Toronto OFF 5TH will open at 1950 Queensway at The West Mall in Toronto, also in September of 2016. That property is owned and operated by Fima Developments. Saks OFF 5TH will compliment the nearby full-priced 143,200 Saks Fifth Avenue store at CF Sherway Gardens, which opened in February of this year.
