Canada goose to open first Japan store

Canada Goose announced this month plans for its first Japan retail store, located in the nation’s capital, Tokyo, this autumn.

Operated by the Toronto-based company’s distribution partner, the new Canada Goose 3,100-square-foot Tokyo flagship will be located in the Sendagaya neighbourhood, “recognised as one of the high-end fashion centres of Japan,” said Canada Goose, in a press release.

“Having a flagship store in Tokyo is particularly exciting as Japan continues to be one of our strongest growing markets and we can now better answer the call of our Asian customers by giving them an opportunity to engage with our brand, unfiltered,” said Dani Reiss, President & CEO, Canada Goose.

The new store will feature signature Canadian design elements and select heritage pieces from the company’s six-decades of archives, as well as an assortment of seasonal collections and exclusive collaborations.

Canada Goose, the North American specialist in high-end down jackets and parkas, opened the company’s first two flagship stores in Toronto and New York in 2016.

Last year, the firm listed on the stock exchange. At the time, the luxury brand said it had plans to extend its retail network.

Alongside the Tokyo debut, Canada Goose said two additional retail stores are slated for this autumn in Boston and Calgary. Previously announced stores in London and Chicago will also open in September 2017.
