Holt Renfrew Expanding Yorkdale Store in Toronto

Current Yorkdale Shopping Centre configuration

This isn’t “new news” as we often post here on Retail Insider, but we thought we would mention that Holt Renfrew is expanding its current Yorkdale Shopping Centre location via an expansion of the mall, Westward. The current store is 65,047 square feet (gross). The expansion will be directly West of the current one-level store and will be 18,925 square feet, creating an 84,000 square foot space.  It is visible on this updated mall floorplan.

Several retail insiders speculate Holt Renfrew is expanding and renovating several of its Canadian stores in anticipation of competing with Nordstrom, a more upscale Hudson’s Bay Company, and the possible arrival of Bloomingdale’s to Canada.

There is little secret among retail insiders that Nordstrom wants Sears’ store at Yorkdale Mall. We will keep our ear to the ground to see if something comes of this.
