COS is finally coming to Canada. The mid-range subsidiary of H&M Group is set to open two brand new stores this fall and winter. A three-story location is planned for Toronto’s Bloor and Yonge Street neighbourhood in September where Aritzia, Zara and nearby Holt Renfrew have their flagship stores. To make an even bigger impact on the Canadian market, a second store on Montreal’s trendy Sainte-Catherine Street West will open this winter. Two additional Toronto locations – in Toronto Eaton Centre and Yorkdale Shopping Centre – are rumored to be next.
COS, short for Collection of Style, launched in London in 2007. The retailer currently has 121 stores across 26 countries.
