We've been privileged to work with many leading retailers over the years. Here's what some of them had to say about Think Retail.

Philippe Jambon (President of Jeff de Bruges)

Going into our partnership with Think Retail, Jeff de Bruges had no presence or brand recognition in Canada. We needed someone who was incredibly knowledgeable about the Canadian market and we found that in Tony and his team. The advice and suggestions received are genuine and we have full confidence in them and their work. They have put us in a position to be able to expand our brand throughout Canada. Our partnership has over exceeded our expectations thus far and we look forward to everything we will accomplish together for the years to come. right quote

Fossil - Bob Higgins (VP New Store Development)

Our Canadian entry plan was developed and set in to action by Think Retail with a level of professionalism that is hard matched in the industry. Their recommendations and efforts helped us establish a concise target list that acted as our company real estate bible. Meetings with key shopping centre holders were just the starting point. They went on to filter out all the noise and negotiate the financial terms on behalf of our interests. Partially thanks to our strategic placement, our stores have exceeded our initial expectations and continue perform. Today, Think Retail remains an active associate in meeting our orientation needs, delivering vital information and resources that are the backbone of our relationship. right quote

International Currency Exchange - Shamir Desai (Director)

Think Retail has been instrumental in the implementation of ICE’s Canadian real estate strategy.  Their relationship with Canadian landlords was extensive and this allowed us to quickly expand our Canadian real estate portfolio into markets and shopping centers that we were unable to open our own. In turn, we were able to lease a number of sites in top performing locations all over Canada. Tony and his team continue to be a key element in our Canadian success and provides us with a high level of service, professionalism and integrity. Think Retail continues to exceed expectations as we expand our mandate and pave the way to seeing the partnership grow in the years to come. right quote

Bizou – Marcel Labrecque (Owner)

Tony has been Bizou’s exclusive Canadian broker for 14 years, remaining our longest standing client relationship, built on excellent rapport and mutual respect. As a real estate partner, they negotiated over 150 leases for Bizou and continue to manage and negotiate all of our lease renewals in addition to securing new locations for growth. As lead negotiator in the company’s restructuring plan 3 years ago, Tony tenaciously negotiated store closures and rent relief efforts, helping us save a great deal of money and jobs. Our company is now looking to open new stores in the New Year and continues to rely on Tony's expertise and devotion. right quote

Pinkberry - Ken Thicke (Area Franchisor)

Based in Vancouver I was reluctant to hire someone from Montreal, but Tony was incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of Canadian real estate and he worked tirelessly to bring Pinkberry to Canada. From the beginning he was upfront about what he could do for us and his work exceeded our expectations. He met with top real estate representatives and landlords at various malls and retail centres, interviewed and researched the competition, and created a thorough analysis of North America’s obsession with our product. He executed Pinkberry’s real estate market entry program into Canada to perfection. Furthermore, he was tenacious while securing all of our primary targets at below market rents. Think Retail has been a great resource, one that we consult on a daily basis. right quote

American Apparel – Dan Abenhaim (Director of Real Estate)

Working in tandem for seven years, American Apparel and Think Retail have developed a very strong relationship and secured spots all across Canada. Access to prime mall retail points was not without its difficulty as Canadian malls have very limited availabilities and we wanted to enter the malls very fast .American Appare operates most of their stores on streets so Tony helped us on diferent aspects other then leasing to assure our success . While working with Tony we successfully secured spots in many of Canada's top performing malls, such as Yorkdale, Market Mall, Sherway Gardens, Carrefour Laval...etc. Furthermore, our mall stores went on to be featured in several retail design publications and are all top performers for the company. right quote

Chop Crazy – Ralph Pulice (Owner)

In just over two years, Chop Crazy has grown to eight units around the Province of Quebec. Tony was with us from the beginning: in the development stage, pushing us forward when we needed motivation, and just being there, ready to answer all of our questions and concerns. When it comes to CC, no real estate broker or agent could possibly be more proactive, aggressive, and passionate working on behalf of our dream. right quote

Crabtree & Evelyn – Rob Ditchfield (President)

C&E has leveraged our nine-year relationship with Tony into a collaborative, reliable, and steadfast instrument to our continued success. We use Think Retail on all real estate related matters, trusting them with all tasks and mandates: new stores, renewals, relocations, downsizing, and store closures.
