JIMMY CHOO’S 1ST FREE-STANDING CANADIAN STORE TO OPEN AT TORONTO’S YORKDALE

Canada’s first free-standing Jimmy Choo store will open at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Interestingly, a Jimmy Choo shop-in-store is already located steps away, within the mall’s Holt Renfrew store. More Canadian Jimmy Choo locations are expected to follow.

Yorkdale’s new Jimmy Choo will be only steps away from Holt Renfrew’s Jimmy Choo shop-in-store

Jimmy Choo will locate next to Yorkdale’s Tiffany & Co. store, in part of the retail space formerly occupied by Mexx. We were first alerted to Jimmy Choo’s new Yorkdale store by an article in Womenswear Daily. ACT7 of Urban Toronto subsequently confirmed its location via this City of Toronto Building Application.

In December of 2013, a Jimmy Choo shop-in-store opened within Yorkdale’s Holt Renfrew. As can be seen from the floorplan in this article, the new free-standing Jimmy Choo will be mere steps away from Holt’s.

London-based Jimmy Choo is one of the world’s most well-known footwear and accessories brands. In Canada, it’s carried at selected Holt Renfrew stores. Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue stores will also likely carry Jimmy Choo when they open their Canadian locations. There are 26 Jimmy Choo stores in the United States, including three concessions within Bloomingdale’s stores.

The shop will be designed and executed by Toronto-based dkstudio inc., which has designed some of Canada’s most prestigious stores including several Louis Vuitton location, Prada at Yorkdale’s Holt Renfrew, and De Beers in Vancouver. It will also design Canada’s first Vince Camuto store, also to be located at Yorkdale.

A source familiar with the company informs us that Jimmy Choo will likely open at least two more Canadian stores. A Downtown Vancouver store is foreseeable as well as another Toronto location, either in the Yorkville area or at the Toronto Eaton Centre.
