Holt Renfrew Square One Finally Opening


Published June 25, 2016 at 4:38 am


Luxury loving shoppers rejoice!

Holt Renfrew’s Square One location is set to finally open sometime in July 2016 after the south expansion has been under construction since 2014.

The high-end, two-storey store boasts over 130,000 sq. ft. of space and offers shoppers such luxury brands as Gucci, Prada, Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo and more. So, if you’re in the market for a very pricey handbag or some jaw-dropping pumps, you’re in luck. 

In true luxury fashion, Holts has left no stone unturned. Architects Janson Goldstein LLP have gone to all lengths to ensure the luxe retailer’s interiors are just as posh as the items being sold within it. The new Square One location will be the fourth largest in Canada, and faces a hefty competition with the likes of American high-end specialty stores Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue on their way to Sherway Gardens. 

Along with Gucci, Prada, Valentino, Manolo Blahnik (and an endless array of posh designers), Holt’s will also introduce the first ever Tiffany & Co. concession to Mississauga, onsite watchmakers and a nail bar and style studio. 

Valet parking will also be available (because let’s face it, the Square One parking lot is a nightmare and if you’re shopping at Holt’s you can probably afford valet), as well as services like a master tailor, shoeshine and concierge. Then, when all of your luxury shopping needs come to a close, you’ll be able to make your way over to the 2,000 square foot Holt’s Cafe for an upscale bite to eat.

Prepare to spend All The Money. 

Or to look at the glorious goods from afar, wishing and hoping for a substantial raise or a generous secret Santa.
