Winners’ American sister store Marshalls finally opened its first downtown Toronto location yesterday (it was initally supposed to open late last year), transforming Circa’s former digs at John and Richmond into a 29,000-square-foot discount haven. Though Marshalls carries clothing, the store’s focus is on footwear (it carries over 8,000 pairs) and kidswear (it also contains a boutique dedicated to “the fashionable and discerning teen”). As off-price retailer, Marshalls’ lineup is constantly in flux, making pinning down what brands it carries an exercise in futility (the company’s website studiously avoids doing so), but it’s a safe bet there are some decent finds to be had–one shopper interviewed yesterday morning came across a Fendi purse and Roger Vivier shoes.
