Lindt goes upscale at Bayview Village

December 10, 2015

We are always happy to work with great retailers and use our valuable industry relationships to make their expansion dreams come true, be it as a broker of record or teaming up for a one-off project.
In the case of Lindt, it was a two-store deal, with Think Retail helping the Swiss chocolatier open two new stores in 2015. 
Lindt had their sights set on two great locations, one in Ottawa and another in Toronto. We were honoured when asked to step in to help them reach an agreement and pushed all of the right buttons to help the company realize their real estate objectives.
A 1,500 sq. ft. store opened at Tanger Outlets in Ottawa in August and now Lindt is celebrating the much-anticipated opening of a 1,100 sq. ft. store in Bayview Village, just in time for the holiday season.
The new store is well positioned in this prestigious shopping centres, which caters to discerning, affluent customers in an inviting, upscale environment.  The 440,000 sq. ft. centre at Bayview and Sheppard Avenues in Toronto, is home to more than 110 one-of-a-kind and luxury retailers, including Andrews, Brooks Brothers, Chadwicks, Honey, Judith & Charles, Lole, Sarah Pacini and more. 
Lindt is a premium brand known for its exquisite Lindor truffles and its shops are rich in atmosphere, creating the ultimate chocolate destination that includes, chocolate truffle Pick & Mix featuring more than 20 flavours, a line of Excellence chocolate bars; and unique chocolate specialty items with holiday themes.
The company dates back to 1879 when Rodolphe Lindt revolutionized chocolate making with ‘Conching’—the intense mixing of heated liquid chocolate to create what we now recognize as the signature silky smooth Lindt chocolate texture. 
The company is a global favourite with its products and shops located in more than 100 countries around the globe. In Canada, Lindt operates approximately twenty-five (25) stores.
Lindt is recognized as the market leader in premium quality chocolate and we were delighted to have the opportunity to work with the brand. For more about the company, visit www.lindt.ca or contact the Think Retail Team.
