Famous UK Brand Expanding Across The Pond
What does Tokyo, London and Toronto have in common?
Hunter, the iconic UK boot and footwear brand, is opening its third freestanding shop and first in North America at the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto.
In October, the brand will open the doors to a beautiful 2,800 sq. ft. store, showcasing outerwear, footwear and accessories from the Hunter Original, Hunter Field collections and the full Hunter Kids range.
As reported by our friends at Retail Insider, in addition the company will release a limited-edition Canada-branded backpack as a special campaign to celebrate Canada’s 150th.
The expansion highlights the brand’s strategy to increase its footprint in North America, close to its biggest market: The U.S.
Creative Director of Hunter Alasdhair Willis told Women’s Wear Daily that the brand is also planning to expand to New York in the near future.
