Quebec City-based streetwear and urban clothing retail concept WLKN has announced that, after securing $2.3 million in financing, it will open three stores in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) by the end of this summer. The new locations will be located at Vaughan Mills, Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket, and at Oshawa Centre.

The stores, targeting the 15-35 year age demographic, will feature men’s and women’s sneakers, accessories, and fashion in an environment where “fashion, music, sports and pop culture reunite”. Over 75 new sales and marketing jobs will be created in the GTA as a result of the store openings.
