StyleXchange is packing up and moving its downtown Toronto location…across the street. The Montreal-based unisex fashion chain is set to open a brand new store in the Toronto Eaton Centre this Friday, which will replace its existing shop at Yonge and Queen.
At 3,000 square feet, the new store on the second floor of the Eaton Centre will be slightly smaller than the 4,300-square-foot Yonge Street shop. But I imagine the new location, inside one of Canada’s largest and busiest malls, could boost traffic at StyleXchange.
The chain, which was founded by Quebec-based brothers Mark and George Batchoun in 2000, has a total of 12 stores throughout Ontario and Quebec. Catering to trendy 16-to-25 year olds, StyleXchange is known for its brand-name fashions, which include Canada Goose, Juicy Couture, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Miss Sixty, J Brand, Rock & Republic and True Religion, among others.
Canadian shoppers seem to be embracing brand name clothing and accessories more than ever before, so it’s no surprise that the StyleXchange concept is succeeding. To cater to its growing customer base, the company is continuing to expand, with plans for new stores later this year and next year.
Toronto will get its second location this fall, when the company opens a new location on Queen Street West. StyleXchange also has stores in Thornhill and Brampton.
