Holt Renfrew to Close Sherway Gardens Location in Toronto; to Open New Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, Ontario

Holt Renfrew announced that it will shutter its Sherway Gardens location in Toronto later in 2016.

At 130,000 square feet, the Square One shop will be almost four times larger than the Sherway Gardens site.

Hallmarks of the menswear store will include customized services such as shoe shines, monogramming and a dedicated space for bespoke tailoring. The store features novel artistic touches from a bronze sculpture by Canadian artist Dennis Lin to chain-link curtains on the upper level and dangling wooden shoe inserts in the footwear section. An expansive array of artifacts from NHL legend Conn Smythe's collection will also be displayed, including a Toronto Maple Leafs mini Stanley Cup and ring and Muhammad Ali's boxing gloves.
