Plus-size brand Torrid will be opening it’s first Canadian retail location in the new wing of Toronto’s Eaton’s Centre. The store will mark the brand’s first international location.
The vibrant Canadian market is the perfect fit with our expansion plans, said Torrid’s CEO, Lisa Harper, in a statement. We have a robust online business there, and it makes perfect sense for our first international store to open in Toronto.
The sister store to Hot Topic carries fashion-forward, edgy and trendy styles in sizes 12 to 28.
Torrid’s Toronto location will open its doors on September 1st. To celebrate the opening, the store will have special appearances from 10am to 5pm from Torrid models Karyn Johnson, Georgina Burke, Philomena Kwao, who will style outfits for contest winners.
There are currently only two other plus-size retailers in Canada — Penningtons and Addition Elle. Sure, you can find plus-size ranges at stores like Forever21, Old Navy and Hudson’s Bay, but fashion lovers of all shapes and sizes deserve to have options when it comes to their wardrobes. Torrid will surely make a nice addition to the small collection of plus-size clothing available to Canadian women.
Torrid is also planning to open three additional locations in Toronto later this year, including one at Upper Canada Mall.
