Due to global lockdowns and restrictions, it comes as no surprise that many retailers have had no other choice but to shutter doors. However, there are actually a handful of brands that have not only expanded throughout Canada but have fully re-entered into the Canadian market after previously going out of business. Now you can enjoy some of your fave brands again without having to pay for duties!
Here are brands that have now re-entered Canada.
Back in 2018, Mexx announced that it had plans to re-open in Canada with its own standalone shops, but unfortunately, those plans never came to fruition. Now, the Dutch fashion retailer is partnering with Walmart, to be stocked in Walmart stores and on the online site. You can expect comfy classics and chic pieces for both men and women at affordable prices.
Forever 21 is officially making a return to Canada with physical stores.This may come as quite a surprise since the brand shuttered all of its locations across the country after filing for bankruptcy in 2019. The Toronto company, YM Inc., established a partnership with the brand a couple of years back and was able to create the Forever 21 e-commerce site for Canadians last year. A handful of the previous Forever 21 spots that were turned into either an Urban Planet, Urban Behaviour, or Stitches, will once again be transformed back to a Forever 21. Confirmed Forever 21 spaces in Canada are in Vancouver and in Windsor, Ontario.
After filing for bankruptcy and shuttering all operations throughout the country last year, the company now has major plans for expansion with the assistance of Thriftys Family of Brands. A total of ten store locations of Lucky Brand have already opened which include stores at Vaughan Mills, Square One, and Metropolis at Metrotown. Another two retail spaces will open soon at Polo Park in Winnipeg and at CF Shops at Don Mills in Toronto. Plus, due to the partnership with Thrifty’s Family of Brands, Lucky Brand products will also be available at certain Bluenotes locations too.
