Putting the Gap back on the map

The Gap’s Bloor Street store has recently undergone a facelift, and the retailer celebrated the store’s new look with Toronto shoppers this week.Gap1

With the renovations just barely complete, the grand unveiling on Wednesday revealed a bright and fresh new feel. The main floor, which features women’s apparel and the Gap Body collection, is nicely spaced out, with a cluster of cash registers in the center of the space and fitting rooms at the back.

The upper level houses the Gap Kids and Gap Baby collections – complete with adorable pint-sized t-shirts and flip-flops – and the lower level is jam-packed full of men’s apparel.Gap2

Currently, bright coloured clothing permeates all three levels of the store. The Gap’s spring and summer collections are dominated by bold shades and fun patterns, from gingham, plaid and stripes to mini animal and insect shapes. Even the collections of shoes, belts and other accessories are far from neutral, boasting all colours of the rainbow.

At the re-launch event, hosted in collaboration with Fashion Magazine, shoppers sipped on cocktails while browsing the newest fashions.Gap3

For anyone who missed out, this weekend is the ideal time to check out the revamped store: nearly everything in the store will be on sale as part of a weekend-long promotion.

The store is located at 60 Bloor Street West, at Bay.
