Brooks Brothers to Relocate Bloor Street Storefront in Toronto After 8 Years

Retail industry news delivered directly to you. Subscribe to Retail-Insider.

Preppy American fashion brand Brooks Brothers will relocate its Bloor Street store in downtown Toronto this summer. The current two-level location at 110 Bloor Street West will move to 83 Bloor Street West where it will operate until the building is demolished for a massive condominium tower. 

The new Brooks Brothers at 83 Bloor will span multiple levels, each measuring over 3,000 square feet per floor. The Hugo Boss store that occupied the site until the fall of 2019 measured about 10,000 square feet over three above-ground levels along with a basement. CBRE listed the space

It’s not yet known how long Brooks Brothers will occupy 83 Bloor Street West. The building has a demolition clause with occupancy said to be of a maximum of two years. A redevelopment of the building as well as adjacent buildings to the west will see a massive new mixed-use residential condominium tower occupy the site in years to come.

Brooks Brothers moved into its current space at 110 Bloor Street West in the spring of 2014. The store currently spans two levels including a street-level space and a concourse level. An employee at Brooks Brothers told us that a spa has already leased the lower level of the store. 

With the exit of Brooks Brothers, every Bloor Street-facing retailer at 110 Bloor Street West, other than Winners, will have vacated the podium. Prior to the pandemic, retailers facing Bloor Street at 110 included Calvin Klein Underwear, Guerlain, Browns Shoes, Brooks Brothers and J. Crew. 

New tenants set to open on the Bloor side of 110 Bloor Street West will include the first Canadian locations for foodservice concept Paris Baguette, French ‘white shirt’ luxury brand Anne Fontaine, and American luxury fashion brand Alexander Wang. The former J. Crew and Brooks Brothers spaces are still for lease on the street level of the podium.

Bloor Street West is said to be seeing a flurry of leasing activity with several new retailers set to be announced. We’ll follow up on this story as we continue to announce these new stores over the coming weeks. Brokers are saying that there is considerable interest in space on the stretch of Bloor between Bay Street and Avenue Road after some tough times partly due to the pandemic. 

In Canada, Brooks Brothers currently operates five full-priced stores and seven factory outlet stores. The brand closed a full-priced store at Bayview Village in Toronto during the pandemic. Besides the current Bloor Street store, full-priced Brooks Brothers locations in Canada include Royal Bank Plaza in Toronto, CF Shops at Don Mills in Toronto, The CORE in Calgary, and 1026 Alberni Street in Vancouver. Factory outlet stores are in Ontario at Vaughan Mills, Toronto Premium Outlets, Outlet Collection at Niagara, Tanger Outlets Ottawa; BC at McArthurGlen Designer Outlets and Tsawwassen Mills; and Alberta at CrossIron Mills near Calgary.
