MONTRÉAL, Dec. 5, 2019 /CNW/ - Swedish watch and jewelry brand, Daniel Wellington, opened its first Canadian store with Cadillac Fairview at CF Carrefour Laval on November 21. The 654 square foot retail space was designed by Montréal-based LODA Design and built by prisma construction.
The watch brand has commanded a loyal following in Canada for many years through retail partners and its own website. Now with its first foray in the Canadian market, Daniel Wellington is looking forward to meeting customers where they already are. Daniel Wellington's Executive Director of the Americas, John Ehrnst, said the opening highlights the potential the brand sees in Canada and allows loyal Canadian customers to receive the same elevated brand experience available at the other hundreds of stores worldwide.
"We are thrilled to be opening our first Canadian store in Québec," said John Ehrnst, Executive Director for the Americas. "We can finally showcase our full product range to our existing customers in Canada and provide them with the full, elevated Daniel Wellington experience."
Daniel Wellington's high quality-product, designed with precision in Sweden, allows customers to have a deeper appreciation for the design process when they can experience it first-hand. "The one thing you cannot do online is touch and feel the product. We're excited to offer our very first offline customer experience in Canada," said Ehrnst.
Daniel Wellington strategically chose to open their first brick-and-mortar location at CF Carrefour Laval due to its incredible and elevated shopping experience.
"We're thrilled to partner with Daniel Wellington to welcome the iconic brand to Canada at CF Carrefour Laval," said Sal Iacono, Executive Vice President of Operations, Cadillac Fairview. "At Cadillac Fairview we are dedicated to delivering an exceptional shopping experience for our guests and introducing first to market retailers like Daniel Wellington is an example of our ongoing commitment."
The store is open from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Saturday, and 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Sunday.
