fixtured shop-in-shop environments in key doors, based on the iconic creative

this the perfect time to introduce Tommy Hilfiger womenswear at Hudson's Bay 
stores," said Gary Sheinbaum, Chief Executive Officer of Tommy HilfigerNorth 
America. "Our strategic alliance with Hudson's Bay for Tommy Hilfiger menswear 
has served our business very well, and we're excited to be expanding the 
partnership."  
"Hudson's Bay is thrilled to expand our Tommy Hilfiger offerings with the 
introduction of womenswear at our stores across Canada and also on 
thebay.com," said Liz Rodbell, EVP, Chief Merchant, Hudson's Bay Company. 
"Introducing womenswear is a natural expansion as we grow our Tommy Hilfiger 
business and falls in line with our commitment to offer our customers the very 
best brands."

flagship stores in downtown Toronto (176 Yonge Street at Queen West), downtown
