GO: hr2 - Holt Renfrew's New Discount Department Stores
November 12, 2012
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been caught on more than one occasion halted on Bloor St., staring into Holt Renfrew’s windows. You impulsively begin your shopping spree, only to end up restraining yourself for the good of your wallet.
Well get ready to shop designer divas! Canada’s go-to luxury retailer, Holt Renfrew, has recently announced its plans to open a chain of discount department stores, cleverly named hr2. The expansion will begin in March of 2013, with a 30,000 square foot mega-store in Brossard, Quebec, and a second opening in Ontario soon after (we’re hoping for Toronto!). The new hr2 stores will carry some additional labels to the ones we already know and love, but at lower price points.
With low price luxury retail outlets are becoming more popular, (Nordstrom and it’s discount counterpart, Nordstrom Rack have plans to expand into Canada), we think Holt Renfrew is right on trend with hr2!
