In the coming weeks we'll be discussing:
-Target's new Canadian store format, including its smaller floorplates and multi-floor concept,
-Nordstrom's continued Canadian store negotiations, as well as what will be in-store at Canadian Nordstrom stores,
-New luxury and chain retailers coming soon to a Canadian city near you,
-Sears Canada's continued strategy of selling-back store leases, which has also occurred recently in the United States,
-The surprising number of retailers knocking on Winnipeg's door, including some international large-format retailers. (including one American, one Canadian and one from Sweden) and
-The plethora of designer outlet malls to open Canada-wide.
Our website is being re-designed by an outside source and we are waiting to see updates. The new format may not transfer-over until later in January. In the mean time, we'll be updating Retail Insider daily with 2013 retail news!
