J. Crew is getting a second Toronto location (and the fellas are included this time!)
Dear J. Crew,
The fashionable men of this city were a little miffed when they were left out of your first foray into Toronto retail. But we just received your e-mail, and were pleased to note that the second J. Crew store, which will be opening in the Eaton Centre in the fall, will indeed include J. Crew’s classic menswear. Sure, you’ll be carrying womenswear too, and this store won’t look anything like the men’s shop in New York, but you’re trying, and we appreciate that. Are you opening up in the spot that Esprit is vacating? All we know at the moment is that the shop is 8,287 square feet on one floor—sounds large enough, but we sadly don’t have the time right now to bring a measuring tape into the Eaton Centre to double-check. Also, we hope you’ve sorted all of the earlier pricing snafus, although considering your attitude toward the last scandal, we doubt it. But seriously, thanks for coming to Toronto. Let’s hear it for the boys.
Update: J. Crew will officially open its Eaton Centre location in October.
