Canada’s 3rd Kate Spade store to open at West Edmonton Mall

A Kate Spade Store will be opening soon at West Edmonton Mall. The store will be Canada’s third Kate Spade store location, and the first to be located outside of Toronto. 

West Edmonton Mall’s Kate Spade will be located on the mall’s second level in its ‘Phase II’ as per the mall map below. It joins an increasingly upscale set of tenants that will include DKNY, Tumi, Tiffany & Co., Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman and others. Kate Spade will replace part of the retail space formerly occupied by clothing retailer Bluenotes

Kate Spade’s first Canadian store opened in November of 2012 at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre. A second, 4,000 square foot flagship location opened in May of 2013 at 138 Cumberland Street in Toronto’s upscale Yorkville area. A Kate Spade outlet store is also located at the Toronto Premium Outlets

For those unfamiliar, New York City-based Kate Spade is a popular mid-priced designer label that features handbags and accessories, women’s ready-to-wear, footwear, stationery and address books, fragrances, eyewear and a home collection. Given the company’s variety of offerings, it has become referred to as a ‘lifestyle accessories and fashion brand’. 

We’ll update you on further Kate Spade store openings in Canada.
