Harry Rosen Unveils Overhauled Winnipeg Store [Photos]

Upscale Toronto-based menswear retailer Harry Rosen has unveiled its newly renovated store at Winnipeg's CF Polo Park shopping centre. The 8,000 square foot store is located on the mall's second level. 

The updated Winnipeg location features an enlarged shoe department, designer sportswear section, new dress furnishings area, as well as a complete refresh of the tailored clothing and sportswear departments -- not to mention a new store front. The store stayed open during the 4.5 month renovation, which cost several million dollars.

Brands featured in the store include Armani Collezioni, Belstaff, Versace, Canali, John Varvatos, Zegna, Canada Goose, and Hugo Boss, among others. New this season is Munro Tailoring from Amsterdam, featuring custom made and ready-to-wear suits, sports jackets and dress shirts 'at a compelling price point', according to the retailer. Behind the scenes is a fully staffed tailor shop for timely alterations.

The store's formerly adjacent Hugo Boss boutique, which had its own separate mall entrance, has been integrated into the main store.  

Harry Rosen first opened in Winnipeg in August of 1986, with this year marking the retailer's 30th anniversary in the city. 

Cadillac Fairview's CF Polo Park is one of Canada's most productive shopping centres, in terms of sales per square foot. It's also one of the largest, and boasts foot traffic in excess of 10 million shoppers annually. This fall, Retail Council of Canada will launch its first Canadian shopping centre ranking study, which will be widely distributed and promoted to the entire Canadian retail industry. More details will be revealed next week and to discuss sponsorship opportunities, contact advertising@retailcouncil.org.
