J.Crew To Open It's First Store in Canada

J. Crew, the iconic American fashion retailer, will open its first store in Canada at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre in August 2011.

J.Crew first became available to Canadian shoppers in 1991 through its celebrated catalogue, and is well-known for women's and men's apparel, shoes and accessories including weddings and parties, and crewcuts for kids.  This new store will mark the company's first international location.

"We're so excited to be opening our first J.Crew store in Canada," says Jenna Lyons, President and Executive Creative Director of J.Crew. "We're in the process of finalizing the look and feel of the store to be sure it's the absolute perfect backdrop for our carefully edited collections."

The over 5,000 square foot store will showcase a carefully edited selection of women's-only clothing and accessories.  Everyday classic designs along with Weekend, outerwear, bags, belts, jewelry and shoes are intended to mix effortlessly with limited-edition pieces from the highly coveted Collection label.  The J.Crew Collection is an evolving gallery of seasonally-updated designers' fantasy pieces crafted in the world's finest fabrics with couture level detailing.
