Turns out the speculation was true: Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is opening at Tanger Outlets in 2016. Here’s the official press release.
Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is excited to reveal its first three store locations in Canada as it prepares to enter the Canadian marketplace next year. Three Ontario cities – Ottawa, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Vaughan (just north of Toronto) – will welcome Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores in spring 2016. This much–anticipated announcement identifies the first of up to 25 locations that Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH plans to open nationwide.
The 28,000 sq. ft. Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH Ottawa will be located at Tanger Outlets in Kanata. As the first outlet mall in area, the centre will deliver a new shopping experience and meet the needs of shoppers in the region that have previously had to travel to outlet shop. The centre has already seen strong customer demand and become a key shopping destination for both Ottawa residents and visitors to the nation’s capital, making it a great location to introduce the OFF 5TH brand to the Ottawa market.
“We are extremely excited to be growing the Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH brand by opening our doors to the fashionable residents of Canada,” stated Jonathan Greller, President of Outlets, HBC. “We have long recognized the tremendous opportunity that the off-price segment represents in Canada and today marks a significant milestone for us. We believe that the incredible product, modern store environment and the great deals that we are known for will truly delight and resonate with Canadian shoppers.”
Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is proud to be a premier luxury-value destination for designer fashion, with more than 800 brands in store, all at amazing prices every day. With new arrivals shipped to the store weekly, customers will discover new and exciting merchandise, including direct-from-the-runway designer finds, with each and every visit. The Canadian stores will align with the redesigned Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH aesthetic, featuring an open and modern modular layout, in an easy to shop ‘treasure hunt’ environment.
