Tommy Bahama Ramps Up Canadian Expansion Plans
Seattle-based fashion brand Tommy Bahama is expanding its base of Canadian stores, including its newest location which opens next week. The company’s new stores will be larger and feature the company’s updated aesthetic, as well as a wider product assortment that will include more womenswear as well as substantially expanded denim offerings.
The company’s CF Chinook Centre location in Calgary, which opened in June of this year, will act as a prototype for future Tommy Bahama locations, according to Tommy Bahama CEO Doug Wood. The Calgary store, designed by Seattle-based architectural firm MG2, showcases a wider selection of women’s products than are typically carried in Canada’s Tommy Bahama stores, which have also been traditionally smaller than the 3,800 square foot CF Chinook Centre unit.
