AllSaints opened its third Canadian store on February 24 at CF Toronto Eaton Centre. The 1,500 square foot store features the brand's Spring 2016 womenswear and menswear collections, as well as the full selection of AllSaints’ debut handbag collection, ‘The Capital Collection’. 

AllSaints' first Canadian location opened in April of 2013 at Toronto's Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The 6,600 square foot store is located in the mall's southwest wing which opened in the fall of 2012. A second Canadian store, measuring 2,237 square feet, opened in June of 2015 at Vancouver's CF Pacific Centre, below the mall's new flagship Nordstrom

The brand is known for being 'edgy and directional' with a muted palette dominated by blacks, browns, whites, and grays. The company's retail stores feature interiors of exposed brick, weathered wood and metal. Store exteriors usually feature windows with antique sewing machines framing each store's entrance.
