Calling All Shoe Lovers--Town Shoes Limited announces DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse Nationwide Expansion in Canada

TORONTO, April 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Hot on the heels of four store openings this spring, Town Shoes Limited has announced an additional six DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse locations set to open this fall. DSW currently has six locations in Canada; three in Ontario and three in Alberta. The new stores will solidify DSW's national presence, with locations opening in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick and Ontario.

The six new locations, averaging 20,000 square feet in size, will be amongst Canada's largest shoe stores. From Moncton to Victoria shoppers will be able to select from over 22,000 pairs of designer and name brand shoes with everyday savings of up to 40 per cent off suggested retail prices. A vast assortment of on-trend styles will feature brands including Converse, Sam Edelman, Vince Camuto, Steve Madden, Nine West, Nike, New Balance, Lacoste, Timberland and Coach.

"When launching our first two DSW locations in Canada last summer, we immediately saw a tremendous appetite for designer shoes at everyday low prices in a big box format. We wanted to deliver this same experience to Canadians across the country, so we've expanded into new markets; most recently Calgary and Edmonton," said Bruce Dinan, president and chief executive officer of Town Shoes Limited. "The expansion will take DSW to new heights across Canada, giving us a coast to coast presence. We're looking forward to being part of these communities."

The stores will open in the following locations:

Sherwood Park Mall, Sherwood Park, Alberta
Island Home Center, Victoria, British Columbia
Mapleton Center, Moncton, New Brunswick
Park Place, Barrie, Ontario
170 North Queen Street (Across from Sherway Gardens), Etobicoke, Ontario
Westwood Power Center, London, Ontario
