Ever since Bonnie Brooks took over The Bay as president and CEO, the Canadian department store has been making a big effort to take over as Canada’s top department store. It started with the redesign of The Room which included visits from top international designers. More recently, the Bay has opened up a Coach shop in their Queen St. location and announcing that the Hudson Bay’s Company Collection will be sold at French department store Colette.
Their latest exciting venture is a partnership with men’s grooming label John Allan’s, which started it’s John Allan’s Clubs in New York and Chicago. The “in store” John Allan’s Club will be located in the Queen St. location, on the second floor within the menswear department, and will offer their exclusive products. Also offered will be John Allan’s Full Service men’s grooming services, which include a scalp massaging shampoo/conditioning treatment, a relaxing hot towel, an expert hair cut from a John Allan trained stylist, a manicure and a shoe shine! We’re thankful the men of Toronto can now get in on the amazing transformation that the Bay is going through. We can’t wait to visit the John Allan’s Club once it opens in January!
