American womenswear retailer White House | Black Market will open three Canadian stores in 2013. Parent company Chico's will open more Canadian stores under the Chico's banner in 2014. 

White House | Black Market is known for its 'slimming' clothing (some have been featured on Oprah) and targets the 30-55 year-old female. It plays on variations of staple white-and-black clothing styles.

The Canadian store-opening information was confirmed in a fourth-quarter investor conference call the afternoon of Thursday, February 28th by Chico's CEO David Dyer. This was immediately reported to Canadian readers via the Financial Post

We are awaiting news on the whereabouts of the first three Canadian stores. 

White House | Black Market has about 350 American stores, while Chico's has almost 1100 American locations.
