Toronto's flagship Hudson's Bay 'Queen Street' store's renovated seventh floor officially opens in May. Toronto Shopkeeper takes us on a tour, highlighting its attractive renovations.
For years the seventh floor at the Hudson's Bay Queen Street flagship was overlooked and housed only a small appliance department and stockrooms. All that has changed as the floor is being reborn with the addition of Kleinfeld Bridal and a brand new home department.
The seventh floor is meant to be a one-stop destination for housewares and help cement the retailer's reputation as gift registry experts (they maintain the country's largest gift registry).
The china and glassware department has begun the move from their former fifth floor location, and other home departments will move in the coming weeks. Windows have been uncovered creating a modern, open, and light-filled space.
Brides visiting the adjoining Kleinfeld Bridal boutique will be able to shop and create gift registries all on the same floor.
Whereas previously home departments were scattered throughout the large store, now they will be found together on the seventh floor (with furniture and appliances one level below).
he grand opening for Kleinfeld Bridal and the rejuvenated seventh floor is set for May.
