News Dec 06, 2017 North York Mirror

Woolrich has opened its first Canadian store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

After a soft opening Friday, Nov. 24, the American brand will host its grand opening Thursday, Dec. 7 at the Dufferin Street and Highway 401 mall.

Actors Emma Roberts, Jaime King and Avan Jogia are scheduled to appear at a private cocktail reception inside the 2,880 square-foot Woolrich John Rich & Bros. store Thursday night.

“People everywhere value high quality garments,” Andrea Cane, Woolrich’s global creative director, said in a release. “Woolrich offers sophisticated outerwear that has been tested since our first parka design in 1972. And we believe that appreciation of versatility, carrying wearers from a great outdoor hike to their everyday city commute, is what has stood the test of time.”

The Yorkdale store features a spacious interior reinterpreted from the brand's global store concept, which was designed by Japanese architecture firm Wonderwall under the creative direction of Masamichi Katayama. The space showcases the men’s and women’s collections, accessories and the brand’s new footwear line. The store’s exterior displays the iconic Woolrich Buffalo Check plaid on the entire facade.

Woolrich was established in 1830 in north central Pennsylvania by founder John Rich. Today, it’s the oldest American outdoor clothing brand, encompassing two distinctive labels — Woolrich Outdoor, the original outdoor clothing collection distributed solely in North America, and Woolrich John Rich & Bros., the contemporary high-end outerwear line distributed worldwide.

The Woolrich brand is owned by Woolrich International, a new entity created in 2016 after the merger between Woolrich Inc. and Woolrich Europe.
