Over the next few years, Toronto’s Mink Mile is expected to undergo a number of major changes.
But that’s not to say change isn’t a good thing.
Included in the affluent neighbourhood’s makeover is a brand new Aritzia. Unveiled on February 14, renovations saw the retailer take over the former BCBG store and a street-level entrance to the Holt Renfrew Centre in between them.
Located at 50 Bloor St. West, the newly expanded Aritzia is seriously impressive.
Standing at over 10,700 square feet, the Bloor St. flagship is double the size of the former location. Outside, visitors are greeted by a large Aritzia sign that sits atop bright marquee lights.
Inside, the ultra-feminine store is light and spacious.
Clothing is displayed on marble tables and wire-wheeled oak tables, as well as in custom built-in wood fixtures.
Dotted throughout the space, shoppers will find specially curated artwork and lush green plant life.
Buttery brown leather couches create optimal lounging spaces, which are perfect for shopping companions.
As retail evolves, shoppers demand more immersive spaces, and Aritzia has been providing that in its newest locations. In the past few years, the Vancouver-based retailer has opened stores for in-house brands like Babaton, Wilfred, and TNA.
Aritzia has also been expanding its footprint across the United States, with locations opening in California, Illinois, New York, and more.
What makes Aritzia Bloor stand out from the rest, however, is the welcoming of a new feature in-store: A-OK CAFE.
Featuring espresso-based beverages, teas, sustainably sourced Columbian coffee, and a variety of micro ground tea, the cafe offers those in the area another option for their daily pick-me-up, as well as freshly baked pastries from local Toronto partners.
Take a peek a closer look inside the store below.
