For those unfamiliar, Tumi is a New Jersey-based manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of travel bags and accessories. It has more recently branched into the lucrative handbag retail market. Tumi has over 120 stores worldwide and over 200 shop-in-store locations.
Tumi's first Canadian store opened in November at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. A Vancouver Tumi retail space opened in November as well though it's not technically a Tumi boutique since it shares space with luggage retailer Rimowa within a store called 'Artino'. A Tumi shop-in-store also opened in December 2013 within a multi-brand luxury duty-free space at Toronto's Pearson Airport (put link).
Tumi products are also available at various Canadian retailers including Harry Rosen, Holt Renfrew and Taschen! stores.
