The next move in Bonnie Brooks’s overhaul of The Bay, according to the Globe and Mail, is the ousting of shoe retailer Browns from its department stores. Getting rid of Browns, which is currently at nine Bay locations, means the store will be able to work directly with suppliers to bring in brands that in the past considered The Bay too fusty. Coach handbags and shoes, for example, will be available there in the fall, and Brooks is looking to expand the designer offerings.
