Fjällräven to Bring its Functional, Timeless Outdoor Equipment to Queen Street West
Swedish outdoor brand set to open its first Toronto store this April
Swedish heritage brand Fjällräven is opening its first brand centre in Toronto in the heart of Queen Street West. The location will serve as a hub for Fjällräven’s functional and sustainable outdoor equipment while showcasing the brand’s commitment to making the outdoors accessible to more people at all experience levels. The opening follows several successful launches in other Canadian markets including Vancouver, Victoria and Montreal.
“We’re thrilled to expand our brand footprint in Canada with our first bricks and mortar store in a bustling retail district in Toronto,” says Nathan Dopp, President of North American, Fjällräven. “Our intent is for the Queen Street West location to serve as a hub for Torontonians who are outdoor enthusiasts while helping local customers find the perfect Fjällräven fit for their next adventure.”
Fjällräven, which means arctic fox in Swedish, has crafted durable and timeless outdoor equipment for 60 years. Equally beloved by outdoor enthusiasts and style aficionados, visitors to the new brand centre can expect an impressive selection of women’s and men’s apparel. The store will also have a dedicated space to showcase its iconic Kånken backpack, which comes in a variety of colours and sizes. A waxing station will allow for shoppers to see the magic of the brand’s G1000 material firsthand and an in-store tailor will allow buyers to fine-tune the fit of their outerwear free of charge.
The 2,200 square foot store located at 356 Queen Street West will be Fjällräven’s 24th retail location in North America and the 5th freestanding store in Canada.
Fjällräven will celebrate the new store by hosting a Grand Opening event on Saturday, April 28, 2018, with doors opening at 10 AM.
In 1960, Åke Nordin founded Fjällräven in his basement in the Swedish town of Örnsköldsvik. Since then, Fjällräven has made a commitment to high quality and high-end design, while staying true to our mission of developing timeless, functional and durable outdoor equipment, acting responsibly towards people, animals and nature and inspiring people to get outside.
