Another brand is expanding in Canada! Athleta will be opening five new stores across the country this year.
According to Retail Insider, the Gap Inc. owned activewear brand will open locations at CF Chinook Centre (Calgary), CF Sherway Gardens (Etobicoke), West Edmonton Mall (Edmonton), 1035 Robson Street (Vancouver), and the fifth being the recent spot in Mapleview Centre (Burlington).
Even up until last year, Canadians weren’t able to even shop the brand online. Now, the e-commerce site is available as well as a few physical stores.
The Mapleview Centre Athleta is the third operating location in Canada right now, alongside one in Vancouver and one in Yorkdale, so by the end of 2022, there will be a total of seven.
It was first reported last year that Athleta has major expansion plans across North America, so it makes sense to see it making moves.
The best part is that Athleta prides itself on being size-inclusive and offering products created with sustainable materials.
It’s in fact a certified B Corporation, meaning it’s not only committed to reducing its environmental impact but also to using fair labour practices.
