Bizou’s new Oshawa store sparkles

December 02, 2016

Montreal’s Bizou is making its mark in Ontario, with the opening of a new store at Oshawa Centre.
The 750 sq. ft. boutique is part of the company’s commitment to expand across the province, with a focus on regional and super regional shopping centres.
Oshawa Centre, which is owned and managed by Ivanhoe Cambridge, is a perfect fit for Bizou, which is flourishing here at home and on the international retail stage.
The two-story shopping centre in the city of Oshawa, about 30 minutes east of Toronto, recently unveiled a $230 million renovation, making it a marquee space. The 1,040,369 sq. ft. mall features more than 230 stores, and recently welcomed 60 new brands, including Adidas, Adore, Forever 21, Hot Topic, Geox, NYX, WKLN and more. Zara is slated to open next year.
Bizou, with its inspired collections of stainless steel and silver ladies fashion jewellery and accessories, will be right at home among the centre’s strong line up of fashion tenants.
Next up, Bizou is poised to announce another Ontario store, to be located within a Cadillac Fairview property—details to come. As well, more international stores are in the works.
The brand is on fire and Think Retail is thrilled to be part of its journey, which started when Marcel Labrecque opened the first boutique in 1984. Today, Bizou boasts a global network of 129 stores and counting.
In Canada, Bizou’s focus remains on Ontario, in particular regional malls in the GTA. Ideal spaces are 500 to 900 sq. ft., with notable co-tenants, such as, but not limited to, H&M, Zara, Lole, Sephora, Banana Republic, Fossil and Victoria’s Secret.
Bizou is evolving into a powerhouse Canadian retail brand and has proven itself the ideal tenant, offering a modern retail experience. Its stores are definitively fresh, organized spaces, designed to attract those who seek a unique array of quality fashion jewellery and accessories.  Part of what makes its products stand out, is a team of in-house designers, who travel the world for inspiration.
