SAKS FIFTH AVENUE TO OPEN IN CALGARY; FIRST STORE IN WESTERN CANADA
Saks Fifth Avenue today announced plans to open its third Canadian location, in Calgary, Alberta. Expected to open in January 2018, the 115,000 square-foot, two-level location will be part of CF Chinook Centre, a Cadillac Fairview property. The new store will feature a modern and authoritative merchandise assortment, including women’s designer, contemporary, modern ready-to-wear, men’s, beauty, jewelry, shoes and handbags. In addition to its elevated assortment, the new location will offer a full service Fifth Avenue Club, complete with private suites and personal shopping consultants.

"Following our incredibly successful entry into Canada earlier this year, we are excited to bring Saks Fifth Avenue to Western Canada in 2018. Our strategy is to opportunistically open new stores where we have the customer, the right location and we are able to deliver a consistent Saks brand edit, focused on modern fashion. Calgary, specifically the CF Chinook Centre, fits these criteria and is a logical next step in our Canadian expansion,” commented Marc Metrick, President, Saks Fifth Avenue.

“We are thrilled to once again partner with Saks Fifth Avenue to bring their iconic brand to a Cadillac Fairview shopping centre,” said John Sullivan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cadillac Fairview. “The addition of Saks to our Western portfolio will further enhance the premium shopping experience Canadians have come to expect from us.”

Saks Fifth Avenue two full-line stores in Canada opened in February 2016 at CF Toronto Eaton Centre and CF Sherway Gardens.

Things You Need To Know About PARKSHOW 2016

Things You Need To Know About PARKSHOW 2016

Calgary’s longest running Canadian emerging fashion designers showcase by PARK organization, PARKSHOW 2016, is taking place in CF Chinook Centre on May 27th and 28th. For the first time, PARKSHOW will have two distinct programs, where each is influenced by a piece of imagery of Miami, Florida. The idea came from the PARK team’s recent photo shoot at that location, which inspired them to bring the vibrancy and liveliness vibe of the South Beach back to the Heart of the New West.

The first night on the 27th, themed the colorful Wynwood District, will present everyday and casual ready to wear collections from eight labels including: KATE HEWKO (Calgary), LENARD TAYLOR (Winnipeg), SEED YOGA (Cochrane), HONUBELLE (Calgary), MADAM WOLF (Calgary), SUKA CLOTHING (Edmonton), VANDAL (Toronto), and BANO EEMEE (Calgary).

The second night on the 28th features designs that will remind the audience the light, color and shapes of retro Miami art deco. The line-up includes CARA CHEUNG (Toronto), HOUSE OF NONIE (Calgary), ANNEKE FORBES (Calgary), BARCLAY CLOTHING (Bragg Creek), VANDAL (Toronto), MALIKA COUTURE (Calgary), REBECCA KING (Saskatoon), S.P. BADU (Calgary), and ANNE B. ACCESSORIES (Calgary).

Following PARKSHOW, CF Chinook Centre in collaboration with PARK will host a pop up shop (PARKSHOP) for the first three weekends in June. In the pop up space, you’ll find a curated collection of Canadian art, fashion, and accessories.
