British fashion brand Ted Baker has opened a location at Calgary’s CF Chinook Centre. The store marks the company’s sixth freestanding Canadian location. 

The Chinook Centre store spans about 2,900 square feet, and is strategically located between retailers Kate Spade and the mall’s busy Apple Store. Nearby retailers include Harry Rosen, Tesla Motors, Tiffany & Co., Burberry and Michael Kors. Ted Baker replaces fashion retailer Marciano, which shuttered its Chinook store earlier this year.

CF Chinook Centre is considered by many to be Calgary’s premier mall. Nordstrom opened its first Canadian store at CF Chinook Centre in September of 2014 and in early 2018, Saks Fifth Avenue is confirmed to be opening a 115,000 square foot unit in the mall’s former Target space. 

Earlier this summer, Ted Baker opened two Canadian locations – one at CF Rideau Centre in Ottawa, as well as an outlet at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlets near Vancouver. Deals for those two locations, as well as for the Calgary store, were negotiated by Northwest Atlantic Principal/Broker Dianne Lemm
