Luxury brand Banana Republic to launch 1st shop in Quebec

Aug '05
One of the world's largest specialty retailers, Gap Inc announced it will open its first Banana Republic store in Quebec on August 12th in Carrefour Laval.

Three additional stores are scheduled to open in leading Quebec shopping malls in August of 2005. The stores will range in size from 6,000 to 8,000 square feet.

Locations will include:
Fairview Pointe Claire - opening August 17
St. Bruno - opening August 24
Rockland Shopping Centre - opening August 25

For Fall, Banana Republic evokes eclectic chic. Fedoras tilted and slouchy bags in tow, Banana Republic men and women represent the look and attitude of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway a la 'Bonnie and Clyde' with effortlessly chic and glamorous style.

Banana Republic customers will love this 1970s-inspired look with long trenches and body-conscious sweater vests for him and houndstooth belted jackets and cropped trousers for her.

"They are really excited about bringing Banana Republic to Quebec," said Marka Hansen, President, Banana Republic. "They already have so many fashion- conscious loyal customers who come from Quebec to shop in the Canadian and U.S. stores. Expanding their brand portfolio in Quebec builds on well over a decade's worth of retail experience in the country. We're excited to have stores in these leading shopping areas."

Banana Republic, which currently has more than 450 stores and annual sales of more than $2 billion in North America, is known for offering modern interpretations of classic fashion for women and men through elevated design and luxurious fabrications at affordable prices.
