Saks has Landed in Canada

by amandamcdougall

…and it is beautiful!

Took a trip down to Toronto a few weeks ago to check out the brand new Saks Fifth Ave that opened in the Hudson’s Bay. There was so much hype, and let me tell you, it was worth it. The inside looks fabulous and due to the sky high prices, checking it out is a dream-like scenario. One day when I can actually shop there, I’ll provide more info on the contents. But for now, a girl can dream…

This brings to light a surprising corporate move on Saks part as they were able to see how well Target’s move went. However, as Target was way too optimistic with opening everywhere at once, Saks is taking their time to dip their feet in the Canadian luxury market competing with big players such as The Room at Hudson’s Bay and Holt Renfrew. It will be interesting to see their effects on the existing shopping.

Also got to stop by Dineen Coffee Shop (gorgeous inside and out and their iced vanilla latte is to die for – even on a cold day)

Definitely make it a priority to stop by Sweet Jesus! Their “pimped out” cones are very instagram worthy and every bit as delicious as they look. And trust me, you won’t want to share but these cones are insanely big. Make sure to allot time for waiting in the standard around-the-corner line.
