Toronto's Pearson International Airport has opened a collection of luxury designer boutiques, located in Terminal 1, International (Non-US) Departures near Gate E76. The shops are operated by Nuance Group. Some of these are either the first in Canada or one of very few in the country. Shops include the following:
- Victoria's Secret
- Salvatore Ferragamo
The airport's Bulgari shop is currently the only store location in Canada. Bulgari once had a 700 square foot store at Toronto's Royal des Versailles Jewellers at 101 Bloor Street West. The shop closed several years ago, and the space is now occupied by a small Rolex shop.
Salvatore Ferragamo has two other Canadian store locations: one in Vancouver (which has been open for decades) and second location, recently opened, at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The company is also said to be scouting retail space in Toronto's Bloor Street/Yorkville area.
Omega's only free-standing Canadian store is currently located within the Hotel Vancouver. A free-standing Toronto store is rumoured to be opening in 2014, and we'll report more when we can confirm its location.
