Aritzia Just Opened Its First Outlet Store

The Aritzia outlet is the first of its kind in North America and is now open at the Toronto Premium Outlets. The store is a part of the outlet centre’s ambitious expansion.

Aritzia fans know that sales at the Vancouver-based retailer are a dime a dozen. They only happen a few times a year, and when they do, you’ve gotta act fast. Over the years, Artizia has been a little more generous with their discounts…and things just got a whole lot better!

As part of the Toronto Premium Outlets expansion, Aritzia launched a new outlet store — it’s the first of its kind in North America, and the store is joining 130 other outlets in 500,00-square-feet of outdoor shopping space. While a rep for Aritzia was shy to comment on full store details, they told StyleDemocracy that shoppers can expect more than half of the store’s inventory to be offered up at a discount, and hey — that sounds pretty good to us!

While Toronto has been waiting patiently for more Aritzia discounts, each year, the clothing brand hosts something special for their hometown each year. The Aritzia Warehouse Sale has been a longstanding tradition for the fashionable females of the West Coast, and it is without a doubt one of the most anticipated warehouse sales in Vancouver year after year, with lineups that are well worth the wait.

In-house labels like Talula, TNA, Wilfred, Babaton, Wilfred Free, Le Fou, Sunday Best, The Group by Babaton, Golden By TNA, 1 -01 Babaton, and Community have become cool girl favourites, and offer up selections for almost every aspect and age of life. Over the years, those brands have launched their own spinoff stores of their own, and the company has even begun to expand in the United States. Aritzia shows no signs of slowing down.

With that being said, Torontonians shouldn’t hold their breath for a warehouse sale — with a brand new outlet, it’s unlikely we’ll see one.

But on the bright side for shoppers, the outlet opens at just the perfect time. Aritzia is joined by outlets from notable designers and brands like Montblanc, Jimmy Choo, Zadig et Voltaire, Versace, UGG, and Max Mara, who were all given a warm welcome as the Toronto Premium Outlets hosted a slew of influencers and VIP guests for a ribbon cutting and speeches.

According to Where Toronto Mag, shoppers were more than willing to brave the cold to get inside the stores and have a first look at the new shops.

Gucci was one of the most anticipated store openings at the outlet and had people lined up around the store. Instagram user @riccovieira claimed that the lineup was over two hours long, while Instagrammer @elisab3th excitedly praised the 30% off deals.

In the upcoming months, bargain hunters can expect a lot more from the Toronto Premium outlets, too.

According to the outlet centre’s store directory, shoppers will soon be able to browse discounts from Citizen Watch Company, Maje, Prada (which you can see the inner workings of below), and Sandro, with discounts of up to 65% off.
