After much anticipation, the Quebec department store Maison Simons has secured its first GTA location. In Spring 2016, the upper-middle-end chain will open a 113,000-square-foot flagship in Mississauga’s Square One Shopping Centre, which already houses outlets of Hudson’s Bay, Target and Walmart. Simons is beloved among loyal Quebecers for its unique blend of high-low merchandise—think $20 tees from in-house line Twik sold alongside $1,200 3.1 Phillip Lim bags. The family-run chain opened its first non-Quebec store in West Edmonton Mall last year, and has another scheduled to open in Ottawa’s Rideau Centre in 2015. The Toronto launch will coincide with the opening of a new Holt Renfrew at Square One, which, needless to say, is set to give Yorkdale and Sherway Gardens a run for their money. Or rather, your money.
