Saks Fifth Avenue to open first store in B.C. in 2016

HBC to open new discount fashion retailer at new Tsawwassen Mills mall

Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th will open a location in B.C. next year.

B.C. will get its first Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th discount fashion outlet in the fall of 2016.

HBC, which owns the brand, says it has picked the new Tsawwassen Mills mall under construction in Tsawwassen for the first B.C. store.

The 32,687-square-foot Saks Off 5th outlet will be one of the anchors of the 1.2-million square foot retail complex on Tsawwassen First Nation land, being developed by Ivanohoe Cambridge.

It’s one of four Canadian locations announced Thursday.

More Saks outlets are being planned, according to HBC president of outlets Jonathan Greller, who said up to 25 could be opened across the country.

Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth bills itself as offering luxury designer fashion, footwear and accessories for men and women at deep discounts.
