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’.
