Bizou focuses on train stations as it opens six new locations in France

April 09, 2018

All aboard! Montreal-based Bizou is celebrating the opening of three new boutiques in train stations and shopping centres across France, with three more opening soon.
The company recently opened in and around Paris: Gare de L’Est, Carré-Sénart  and Italie2 . Next up, Gare de Lyon in April, Gare St-Lazare in July and Gare Châtelet-Les Halles in October.
It’s an extraordinarily exciting time for this great Canadian brand, which also has reached agreement through a licensee to open two boutiques on Mauritius Island, formerly Iles Maurice. One will open at Bagatelle Mall of Mauritius in October and another is slated for December.
Bizou has an incredible back story: Marcel Labrecque debuted his first women’s jewellery and fashion accessories boutique in Montreal in 1984 and today the family-owned company operates 106 stores around the globe, including 96 in Canada.
In addition to its international efforts, Bizou continues strong expansion here at home. It opened at CF Masonville Place in London, Ont. last summer, part of an ongoing effort to build its presence across the province.
The company is looking to open boutiques in high-traffic train stations and airports in Ontario and Quebec. In addition, Bizou is interested in 450 to 800 sq. ft. in super regional centres in the Greater Toronto Area, as well as Toronto’s PATH. 
Bizou is the ultimate fashion co-tenant, with fresh modern stores that provide the ideal backdrop for its unique collections. Much of it stainless steel and sterling silver jewellery is the work of in-house designers, who travel the world for inspiration and to stay on top of the latest trends. You don’t find these products anywhere else, making Bizou a destination retailer.
Think Retail is thrilled to work with the Bizou team as they embrace the next phase of expansion, both here at home and around the globe.
