Tiffany & Co. has opened its ninth free-standing Canadian location at Ottawa's Rideau Centre. It replaces the city's former Tiffany concession within Holt Renfrew, which closed earlier this year. 

The new 2,400 square foot Ottawa Tiffany store carries a range of jewellery including engagement rings, 'celebration rings' and diamond jewellery. Lines such as the Atlas Collection and its newest collection, Tiffany T, are showcased along with jewellery collections by Tiffany designers Jean Schlumberger, Elsa Peretti, and Paloma Picasso.

The Rideau Centre Tiffany replaces a shuttered shop-in-store concession within the city's recently closed Holt Renfrew. Holt Renfrew shuttered its Ottawa store on January 25, as the Toronto-based luxury retailer focuses on operating larger stores in a handful of primary markets

Tiffany has three free-standing stores in Toronto, two in Vancouver, and one each in Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal. Three smaller Tiffany & Co. concessions also operate within Holt Renfrew locations in Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal.

Rideau Centre is undergoing a $360 million expansion. Nordstrom's second Canadian store opened on March 6,  measuring 157,000 square feet and occupying the top two levels of the mall's former Sears location. New retail space will be added and in August of 2016, including a 100,000 square foot La Maison Simons which will open at the north end of the mall. As well, upscale menswear retailer Harry Rosen recently opened a 17,000 square foot replacement store featuring a footwear store with its own entrance, replacing a location about half its size.
