British luxury retailer Mulberry will open its second Toronto store at 131 Bloor Street West in Toronto. It replaces a Lacoste store in unit 103 of The Colonnade, arguably Canada's 'centre ice' of luxury retail. This will also be Canada's second Mulberry location.

We announced Canada's first Mulberry store will open Autumn 2013 at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Other Canadian locations are expected to follow.

Toronto is only the second North American city to have more than one Mulberry store, and only the fourth North Amercan city to have free-standing Mulberry shops. New York City has three Mulberry stores and a fourth in Short Hills, New Jersey (a NYC-area suburb). Mulberry also has stores in San Francisco and suburban Washington DC.

The Bloor Street Mulberry store will carry the full line of accessories as well as women's ready-to-wear clothing and shoes. We are waiting to hear back as to whether or not the store will be two floors, taking over part of the Colonnade's Japan Foundation Library & Museum lease. The ground floor of the former Lacoste store is 2,237 square feet, while the second floor Japan Foundation space is 2,730 square feet.

Mulberry women's handbags are currently available in Canada at Holt Renfrew stores in Toronto (Bloor Street), Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.
