Fossil Adds Three Canadian Stores

October 14, 2014

October is shaping up to be a very big month for Fossil in Canada. The Texas based, watch and fashion accessories specialist, is set to bolster its Canadian retail presence with the addition of three (3) new locations.  

Last week, Fossil opened at Polo Park  (1300 sq.ft) in Winnipeg. Next week, the company opens at Tanger Outlets Ottawa (2850 sq.ft). The following week, Fossil opens at Montreal Premium Outlets (3000 sq.ft). 
They say that good things always come in threes. Three new stores, in three weeks, in three different markets, and with three different landlords. To us hockey loving Canadians, that’s the equivalent of a natural retail hat trick. 

The new openings culminate a very busy year for Fossil in Canada. Earlier in the year, the company opened on Bloor Street in Toronto. This flagship location was the first in Canada to be fit with Fossil’s new store design prototype (see attached photos). Fossil also opened new stores at Niagara Outlet Collection, Market Mall (Calgary, AB), Masonville Place (London, ON), Lime Ridge Mall (Hamilton, ON), and Quartier 10/30 (Montreal, QC). Fossil will finish the year with 33 Canadian locations.

Fossil’s next Canadian opening is scheduled for May 2015, at Vaughan Mills (4000 sq.ft).

The above-noted transactions were negotiated by Think Retail, Fossil’s exclusive Canadian real estate broker.

Fossil was founded in 1984. Today the company operates approximately 540 stores, has 4,000 wholesale locations and 13,000 employees worldwide.
