Simons, the Canadian fashion retailer from Quebec City is opening its first Calgary location downtown at The CORE Shopping Centre on Thursday, March 16.
This will mark Simons’ 14th store in Canada and the second in Alberta, first being in Edmonton at West Ed.
With a total of 95,000 square feet, the store makes up five floors in the Lancaster Building and portions of the first, second and third floors of TD Square.
The main floor of Simons runs an entire city block on 2nd Street between Stephen Avenue and 7th Avenue.
“The key for Calgary was to bring Simons to the heart of the city in a way that pairs our contemporary style with the heritage of a historic building,” said Peter Simons, CEO of Simons in a release. The result is a five-storey, multi-building layout that creates an exciting shopping experience where customers can explore our branded environments; each with its own space and personality.”
