Popular Vancouver-based Saje Natural Wellness has announced that it will open 12 new locations, as it looks to grow to about 50 locations by the year 2018. Its aggressive expansion is especially impressive, considering that Saje had only 14 stores when we first reported on the company in September.
Ten of the 12 locations to open in 2015 include:
- Kingsway Mall, Edmonton, AB
- Market Mall, Calgary, AB
- Metropolis at Metrotown, Burnaby, BC
- Rideau Centre, Ottawa, ON
- Connestoga Mall, Waterloo, ON
- Limeridge Mall, Hamilton, ON
- Mapleview Mall, Burlington, ON
- Sherway Gardens, Toronto, ON
- Toronto Eaton Centre, Toronto, ON
- Oshawa Town Centre, Oshawa, ON
Saje will reveal the last two locations at a later date. In 2014, Saje opened a total of eight stores in West Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, as well as four locations in the Greater Toronto Area.
Founded in 1991, Saje retails hundreds of different natural wellness products, accessories and gift ideas. Products contain 100% natural ingredients, including plant-derived essential oils and base ingredients. With impressive revenue growth of 122% and unprecedented same store comparable
sales of 57% in 2014, Saje currently operates 22 stores in Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and the Greater Toronto Area.
Saje plans to continue its expansion, seeking space between 700 and 1,200 square feet in top tier malls and high traffic street front locations. Its current focus will be on Ontario, Alberta and Atlantic Canada, although it will also consider locations Canada-wide. John Snable is responsible for mall opportunities and Josh Campbell, VP Retail, is responsible for high profile street-front locations.
