Hudson's Bay has opened TopShop stores at its Yorkdale Shopping Centre (15,000 sq ft) and flagship Queen Street W. store (19,000 sq ft). The Yorkdale store pulled-in about $11million during its first 12-months of operation.
TopShop/TopMan had an opening party on October 17th 2012 including a performance by Canadian rock indie group Metric. The party cost about $990,000 and of that, $300,000 was paid to Metric for their rather brief performance. Money well spent?
