The History Of StyleDemocracy

Starting out of his home in 2000, Michael Berg launched StyleDemocracy — Canada’s first outsourced warehouse sale business — with instant success! 

Before StyleDemocracy, Michael worked in his family’s business, the iconic Toronto luxury retailer Ira Berg, which originally opened in 1929 and introduced Toronto to brands like Prada, Celine, Louis Vuitton, Benetton, DKNY, and Kiehls. But like all good things, they must come to an end. And after closing Ira Berg in 1997 with a spectacular liquidation sale, Michael quickly noticed how customers reacted to a can’t miss sale — the line ups were like nothing he had ever seen. 

Coupled with his relationships with some of the world’s most coveted brands, the sense of urgency the Ira Berg sale created for shoppers provided that “Aha!” moment that Michael needed to start his next big endeavor: warehouse sales. Not only were they an effective way for businesses to sell their excess inventory, but a unique way to get shoppers excited about their favourite designers and brands. 

Now more than 20 years later, StyleDemocracy is thriving as the authority in the warehouse and pop-up sale industry.

StyleDemocracy has run over 350 events across North America for notable brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, New Balance, Nordstrom, Holt Renfrew, Dolce & Gabbana, Levi’s, Lacoste, Sporting Life, Holt Renfrew, The Gap, Ted Baker, Hugo Boss, TOMS, Tommy Hilfiger, and dozens more.

Not only is StyleDemocracy the leader in warehouse sales, sample sales, and pop-ups, but StyleDemocracy.com has emerged as a content rich publication.
