TORONTO, May 8 /CNW/ - Harry Rosen Inc. launched Western Canada's first
official Canali shop-in-shop at its flagship Pacific Centre location today.

leather-clad fitting rooms provide a sumptuous place for customers to
experience the Canali collection.

Italian craftsmanship and style," states Larry Rosen, CEO & Chairman of Harry
Rosen Inc. "We are very excited about sharing this unique retail concept with
Vancouver customers and giving them the opportunity to experience a greater,
dynamic selection from Canali."
