Danish footwear brand ECCO has opened its largest Canadian location at West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton. The store, which spans about 1,525 square feet, features the brand’s updated store design, with modern and minimalist interiors that feature natural oak, slate, stone, stainless steel and yak leather finishes, as well as a nod to Scandinavian with various design accents.
The West Edmonton Mall store is the company’s 31st Canadian location, as it continues to expand its operations in this country. The new store is located in a high traffic location on the mall’s second level, between retailers Express and RW & CO., as per the mall map below.
Edmonton’s first and only other ECCO store is at the Southgate Centre. Both Southgate and West Edmonton Mall are considered to be among the top malls in Canada, according to Retail Council of Canada’s Shopping Centre Study, which noted Southgate to be Canada’s fifth most productive mall in terms of sales per square foot, while West Edmonton Mall ranked as the largest as well as one of the busiest malls on the continent.
ECCO was founded in Bredebro, Denmark, in 1963. It's products are sold in 88 countries worldwide in over 3,000 ECCO shops and shop-in-stores, at more than 14,000 sales points around the world. The brand has since expanded into accessories and small leather goods. ECCO Canada was founded in 1996 and its representative brokerage is Northwest Atlantic.
