Two mainstays at 100 Bloor West, Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn, will vacate their prime Mink Mile real estate early next year. A massive rent increase is forcing the two shops to move out after 12 years on the block, according to Retail Insider. There’s no news yet on who will take over the 37,000 square feet of available space. Given that the rent was too steep for a multi-billion-dollar retailer, it’ll have to be someone with very deep pockets. If we had to hazard a guess, we’d bet on another international luxury brand, like recent neighbours Mulberry and Agent Provocateur.
