Canada's Hudson's Bay stores are renovating with a 'new look'. Substantial renovations have been underway at its Vancouver and Toronoto stores. Both flagships are still incomplete, while some interesting upgrades have been made to its Yorkdale Shopping Centre store in suburban Toronto.

Check out the store's new jewelry department, image above. The look is clean, modern and elegant. Expect similar jewelry departments at Hudson's Bay stores across Canada in the next couple of years.

We have been told that the new-build Oakridge Shopping Centre Hudson's Bay store (in Vancouver BC) will adopt a similar look, while the Vancouver and Toronto flagship stores will see similar jewelry department designs for Spring/Summer 2013. We recently posted an article about the Oakridge expansion, including an entirely newly-built Hudson's Bay store.

The image below shows an upgraded shoe salon and women's contemporary clothing area. Again, a clean and modern look is highlighted with upgraded lighting and ceiling treatments.

The photo below shows an upgraded women's contemporary designer floor. The ceilings are smooth and modern, and we have been told that they will eventually upgrade all floor tiles from what you see currently at the forefront of this image.

The three photos we used were taken by Adam Zendel. He has an interesting twitter account and we follow him. It's: @adamzendel. We are also posting a link to his Toronto Star blog, below

We will continue watching Hudson's Bay's design strategy with interest. Hudson's Bay's interiors appear to be more modern than those seen at Nordstrom.
