TUMI is on Canada-wide store expansion. Next stop: Calgary’s Chinook Centre

Tumi is officially on a cross-Canada store expansion, and its third Canadian location will be at Calgary’s Chinook Centre. Mall management won’t confirm Tumi’s exact location but they do confirm it will open in early 2014. Tumi is already hiring for the store and you can find job postings at this link.

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 second Canadian store will open next month at West Edmonton Mall. 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
