Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH Announces Three New Store Locations in Canada

First Quebec location unveiled alongside two more locations in Ontario

TORONTO, ON (November 23, 2015)— Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is pleased to announce three new locations in Canada: Halton Hills, ON, Ottawa, ON and Mirabel, QC. The highly anticipated openings are part of Saks OFF 5TH’s North American expansion plan to open up to 25 locations across Canada by 2018. Saks OFF 5TH previously announced planned store openings at Tanger Outlets in Ottawa, Vaughan Mills in Toronto, Outlet Collection at Niagara at Niagara-on-the-lake, all slated to open spring 2016, as well as CrossIron Mills in Calgary scheduled to open fall 2016.

“We are thrilled with the newly announced Saks OFF 5TH locations in Canada. These new stores are situated in successful retail locations and we are eager to introduce Canadians to the Saks OFF 5TH brand when we launch in 2016,” commented Jonathan Greller, President of Outlets, HBC.

Toronto Premium Outlets, Halton Hills, ON

Transforming the existing Hudson’s Bay Outlet store at Toronto Premium Outlets into Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, the 25,000 square foot store is scheduled to open spring 2016. Situated in Halton Hills, approximately 30 minutes from downtown Toronto, Toronto Premium Outlets will be home to one of the first Saks OFF 5TH stores in Canada. The highly anticipated opening will introduce shoppers in the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding region to Saks OFF 5TH’s signature brand experience.

Rideau Street, Ottawa, ON

Located in Ottawa’s bustling downtown shopping district, the new Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH will be located within Hudson’s Bay’s flagship store at 72 Rideau Street, scheduled to open in fall 2016. The existing Hudson’s Bay store is currently undergoing extensive renovations, adding new visuals, flooring, and natural light. Saks OFF 5TH will utilize 33,000 square feet of the current footprint to build on an exciting new shopping experience coming to this location.

“We are delighted to have Saks OFF 5TH open in the lower level of the Hudson’s Bay Rideau store in Ottawa,” stated Liz Rodbell, President of Hudson’s Bay. “Having Saks OFF 5TH join our Ottawa store will enhance the overall shopping experience at Rideau and offer our customers an expanded assortment of merchandise at complementary price-points under one roof.”

Premium Outlets Montreal, Mirabel, QC

The conversion of the Hudson’s Bay Outlet store at Premium Outlets Montreal, located approximately 40 minutes north of the city in the Montreal suburb of Mirabel, will signal Saks OFF 5TH’s debut in Québec.
