Ann Taylor has announced the opening of its first store located outside of the U.S. — the Toronto Eaton Centre location, being unveiled October 5. The 277-store U.S. women’s apparel chain is scheduled to open a second international store at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto in November 2012.
The Ann Taylor Toronto Eaton Centre store grand opening will be celebrated on Saturday, October 13, in partnership with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The event will feature live music, product giveaways and a free limited edition tote with any purchase over $100. As part of the affiliation with BCRF, Ann Taylor will donate 10% of sales from the event to the foundation.
“We are thrilled with the positive response we have received in anticipation of the launch of Ann Taylor in Toronto,” said Brian Lynch, Brand President for Ann Taylor, in a company press release. “We are so pleased that we can finally cater directly to our Canadian clients here in Toronto.”
