Holt Renfrew‘s first free-standing menswear store opens October 1 at 100 Bloor Street West, in the heart of Toronto’s ‘Mink Mile’. Called ‘Holt Renfrew Men‘, the store measures 16,500 square feet and features distinctive branding and luxury amenities, including its own doorman. Holt Renfrew is upping its game to compete with neighbouring Harry Rosen and other luxury retailers entering the Toronto market over the next two years.
The two-level store replaces Roots Canada which, until last year, occupied the prominent 100 Bloor Street corner location. We’re told that Holt Renfrew signed a long-term lease for the space, paying a premium for what is arguably ground zero for Canadian luxury retailing.
Holt Renfrew Men offers a variety of upscale services. Sartorial options are provided, including made-to-measure suiting and a bespoke tailoring space. Luxurious shopping suites offer a personalized experience, and enhanced levels of service include complimentary alterations, valet service, shoe shine, a cobbler for shoe repairs and on-site monograming. Bespoke tailoring will be provided by Toronto-based Walter Beauchamp Tailors.
