Canadian Fashion Retailer Groupe Dynamite Announces Expansion into the U.S. and international markets

MONTREAL, May 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Widely popular and ever-expanding, fashion retail giant Groupe Dynamite opened its first-ever Dynamite American retail location Friday, May 17, 2013, in New York, following the huge success of Garage, which launched in the U.S. in 2007.

Groupe Dynamite, a Canadian retailer who has been providing customers with on-trend fashion for more than 38 years, is set to open three more U.S. Dynamite stores and three international locations in 2013. Over the next five years, Dynamite is expected to see approximately 60 new stores. Garage, which currently has 33 American retail locations, will open three more in the U.S. and six more internationally by the end of this year.

"We are very pleased to be opening our doors to our neighbours south of the Canadian border," said Groupe Dynamite President, Anna Martini, "Dynamite has been warmly received in this new market and is quickly becoming a hot name on the street - this is exciting, as we've already seen such amazing growth and success with Garage!"

To support its expansion, Groupe Dynamite has largely focused on social media, by providing fans and followers with relevant and original content in both Canada and the U.S. through top social media channels - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
