After waiting for what felt like an eternity, Saks Fifth Avenue finally opened its chic doors in Toronto last week, and we got a chance to preview it the night before the official opening. Spanning four floors and 25,000 square feet, the store is bright, welcoming, and full of amazing designer finds from brands like Balenciaga, Céline, and Saint Laurent, and exclusive beauty brands like Acqua di Parma, Byredo, and Le Labo. And don’t even get me started on the iconic 10022-SHOE salon – it is amaaaazing!
In May, Leña, a South-American-inspired restaurant and bar by Chef Anthony Walsh will open its doors, offering a premium dining experience with a Spanish influence. And don’t forget about Saks Food Hall by Pusateri’s, which will consist of inspiring culinary stations, and will offer exclusive products, fine foods, services and a deluxe grocery assortment. Both Saks stores (Eaton Centre and Sherway Gardens) promise “a robust calendar of special events, such as fashion shows, personal appearances by designers and trunk shows”.
Having been a Saks customer for many years, I am thrilled that Toronto will finally get 2 stores of our own. What are your thoughts on Saks in Canada? Share in the comments!
