Tiffany & Co. opens today at West Edmonton Mall. The 3,300 square foot store is the 12th Tiffany store location in Canada, and its first in Edmonton. Tiffany announced this store location in March.

The store is located on the second level of the mall's "Phase III", between Coach and a new Stuart Weitzman shoe store which will also open soon. We first mentioned Tiffany's arrival at West Edmonton Mall last February when we got word that the mall's owner is spending a fortune to renovate the property.

The store replaces a small Tiffany & Co. 'corner' which was located within Downtown Edmonton's Holt Renfrew store. It closed in January of this year.

Tiffany & Co.'s other Canadian locations are in Metro Toronto (3 locations), Vancouver (3 locations), Calgary (2 locations), Montreal (2 locations) and Ottawa.

Along with its multi-million-dollar renovation, West Edmonton Mall has seen several recent retail announcements. There are also rumours that the mall could possibly open Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue stores, though this is still currently speculation.
