Another Canadian Retailer Closes Down in Danier
As most of you probably know by now, Canadian leather retailer Danier is liquidating and closing down all of its retail stores.
According to a recent CBC article, the brand entered insolvency proceedings last month while attempting to find a buyer. Sadly, it appears no one came forth to purchase the once popular leather goods chain.
The good news for Mississauga residents is that they can purchase steeply discounted jackets and accessories from the retailer's remaining stores before they shut their doors for good.
Danier is holding a huge liquidation sale at all its remaining 76 locations. You can get clothing and accessories (handbags, wallets and other apparel) for anywhere from 25-75 per cent off. You can also purchase furniture and other equipment, if you so desire.
Although the demise of the homegrown retailer is sad, it's not entirely unexpected. According to a recent Financial Post article, leather goods have suffered due to the growth in popularity of goose down coats. The article also mentions those two abominably, insufferably cold polar vortex winters that had people abandoning their stylish (but less cozy) cow-skin jackets for those cumbersome but enduring $700-ish Canada Goose beasts that make the wearer sweat profusely while Christmas shopping at Square One.
After dropping close to a grand on a parka-thingy, you better not take it off while standing in line at David's Tea!
Who knows what will happen to the jacket market once we have a few more winters that aren't reminiscent of a good day in Winterfell.
Danier boasts four Mississauga locations, with stores in Square One, Erin Mills Town Centre, Heartland Town Centre and Dixie Outlet Mall.
