German women’s fashion brand Gerry Weber has closed its eight corporately operated Canadian stores, after entering the market in the spring of 2015. Three franchised Gerry Weber stores, which have operated for several years, will continue to remain open.

As of last week, all corporately owned Gerry Weber stores in Canada had closed, except for a location at Vaughan Mills, north of Toronto. The store continues to clear out the brand’s merchandise and will close on Friday, January 27.

Gerry Weber’s first corporately owned Canadian store opened in March of 2015 at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, followed a month later with stores at Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket and at Scarborough Town Centre in Toronto. In May of 2015, locations opened at Vaughan Mills, Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, and at Outlet Collection at Niagara, near Niagara Falls. The company’s last two Canadian stores opened at Calgary’s CF Chinook Centre and at CF Promenade in Thornhill, north of Toronto. More were expected to follow.
