Upscale Canadian retailer Lemonwood continues expanding its footprint in the marketplace with the opening of its sixth upscale boutique in the heart of the Kingsway Village shopping district in Toronto.
It’s the second Toronto location for the fashion retailer with stores as well in Summerhill, Oakville, Collingwood, Unionville and a seasonal outlet in Port Carling.
The first store opened in 2017 in Oakville.
President and Founder Christine Peters said the business started as a wholesale brand selling to spas, hotels and small gift shops.
“My thought was to have a retail space to check to see what colours were selling ahead of the season. It started off to be something very small and like ‘okay we’ll do wholesale out the back door and retail at the front’. We started on a side street in Oakville,” she said.
“We quickly realized a side street probably wasn’t where we should be and took the opportunity to pop up on a mainstreet in Oakville just before Christmas. It was November of 2017 and the product was a huge hit with the local community. It was our start and from there we went on.”
