LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - 7 For All Mankind, the Los Angeles-based premium denim-lifestyle brand, is continuing its aggressive retail expansion strategy with the opening of its first fully owned stores in Canada.

7 For All Mankind has been available in Canada since 2003 through high end department stores including Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen and Simons.  The decision was made to focus on a direct to consumer strategy due to the Canadian consumers' increasing demand for the 7 For All Mankind® product and the strong, resilient buoyancy of the Canadian market.   Canada will utilize the brand's U.S. platform for its retail operations.

On March 10th, 2011, 7 For All Mankind will open its first store at the famed Chinook Centre in Calgary.  Following the opening at Chinook Centre, the brand plans to open between two and three stores per year for the next four to five years.   The new Canadian stores will feature design characteristics similar to other 7 For All Mankind® retail locations but will also uphold a regional feel.  7 For All Mankind will offer shoppers a broad assortment of the brand's collection for men and women including; denim, sportswear, and eyewear. 

"Canada is a perfect market in which to offer our complete collection. The brand has been available in Canada for several years and has been extremely well received. Opening 7 For All Mankind® stores will enhance the brand's presence and permit us to offer a wider range of products to our Canadian customers.  Each new store will be located in the most prestigious areas for contemporary, high-end consumers.  The stores will stay true to the 7 For All Mankind® aesthetic and will be perfect additions to the brand's existing retail footprint," said Giuliano Sartori, President of VF Contemporary Brands Canada Corp., a division of VF Corporation.
