DSW Opening Three New Locations in Canada

We just found out exciting news! Designer Shoe Warehouse, known for their off-price multi-brand American footwear, has announced that it will be opening three stores in Canada this Spring. Two of these stores will be located in Ontario and one will be in suburban Edmonton. This will bring its Canadian store count to 27 units nationally.

According to Retail-Insider, “all three stores will feature DSW Kids footwear and accessory departments, bringing the total number of stores with kids’ products to 17 in Canada. The new stores will also include about 1,500 square feet dedicated to women’s handbags, as DSW further grows its accessory business to compliment expansive off-price footwear offerings.”

The two brand new Ontario locations will open on March 1 of this year in suburban Toronto — one at Trinity Commons in Brampton, and another at RioCan Durham Centre.

“The company’s expansion slowed in 2017 from its initially rapid expansion that began in 2014, though this spring 2018 announcement could be a sign that things are ramping up in terms of store openings.” After the closure of Sears Canada, retailers like DSW have more real estate options at more favourable lease rates, as landlords seek to repurpose vacated space.
