Woolrich Looks to Open Canadian Stores
American outdoor wear brand Woolrich plans to open 80 stores around the world over the next five years, and the company specifically says that Canada will be part of that expansion.
Founded in 1830 in Pennsylvania, Woolrich is America’s oldest manufacturer of outdoor wear. The company was founded for the purpose of manufacturing fabric for the wives of hunters, loggers and trappers. Later, the company also outfitted clothing supplies to the American Civil War.
Woolrich boasts annual sales of U.S. $250 million globally, with the vast majority of sales being wholesale.
