Bed, Bath and Beyond opens its largest store in Canada at Yonge and Gerrard
Less than a month after Marshalls opened at John and Richmond, another big American chain has launched its first downtown Toronto store. Suburban mainstay Bed, Bath and Beyond is now selling home, kitchen and garden merchandise out of a mammoth space in the base of the Aura at College Park condo building on Yonge, just north of Gerrard. The 50,ooo-square-foot store is the largest Bed, Bath and Beyond in Canada, which is appropriate since, once finished, Aura will be the country’s tallest residential building. Whether or not all those superlatives will make downtowners want to run over for bedding and bath stuff (plus all that “beyond” encompasses) remains to be seen, though we imagine the one-stop appeal of the big-box store will see it thrive.
