Canadians woke up early today for Zellers’ official grand opening.

Videos posted by the retail chain Thursday morning show massive lines outside its stores in Toronto.

Eager shoppers wrapped around the halls at Scarborough Town Centre.

And it was the same scene at Erin Mills Town Centre in Mississauga.

Calgary joined in on the fun showing the long line at Zellers’ Sunridge Mall location.

The launch day festivities even included a drum line at Scarborough Town Centre. Customers will definitely be awake and alert while they shop.

For now, shoppers in Ontario and Alberta get the chance to relive their childhoods with 12 locations opening today.

The store’s e-commerce platform,, is also live.

You can pick up economically priced, but good quality items at the stores, including kitchenware, accent furniture and home decor, organization and storage options, baby and kids toys, apparel for pets, and apparel basics for men and women.

Daily Hive also got a sneak peek of the new store in Toronto, which you can check out here before you go and see it for yourself.

The big returns come after the department store shuttered in 2013.
