Canada Goose is migrating across the globe. The upscale outdoorsy-apparel brand, which boasts that its merchandise is as rugged as it is luxurious, announced plans to open two flagship stores this fall, one each in London and Chicago.
In Chicago the brand will open on Michigan Avenue, on the city’s Magnificent Mile. The London flagship, the brand’s largest retail space to date and the company’s first store in Europe, will be on Regent Street, one of the U.K.’s most iconic shopping destinations.
Both stores will feature Canadian design elements, including marble quarried in British Columbia.
“Opening our first European store is not only a milestone for Canada Goose, but it’s turning a dream into reality,” said Dani Reiss, the chain’s president and CEO. “London and Chicago are world-renowned shopping destinations, and I’m proud to bring our Canadian heritage, experience and unparalleled product to their historic streets.”
Last year Canada Goose opened its first flagship stores in Toronto and New York City. Building on six decades as a manufacturer, Canada Goose became a retailer in 2014, with the launch of its first e-commerce site in Canada, followed quickly by operations in the U.S. in 2015, and in the U.K. and France in 2016.
