Paris and London (Ontario), Bizou boutiques opening around the globe

September 27, 2017

Montreal-based Bizou is shining in new markets, both in Canada and around the globe.
We are delighted to announce that Bizou is now open at CF Masonville Place in London, Ont., part of a larger strategy to expand across Ontario. Next up, Canada’s own Bizou is opening at Gare de L’Est in Paris this month and plans for another store are in the works for Carré Sénart, just south of Paris.
It’s an incredible time for the brand, which debuted its first boutique in Montreal in 1984: Today Bizou boasts a global network of more than 130 stores and counting. 
Its latest, a 558 sq. ft. boutique at CF Masonville Place, opened this summer. The premium shopping centre is an ideal fit for the Bizou brand—Masonville Place recently completed a $77-million expansion and redevelopment, during which it welcomed a number of other best-in-class retailers, including Zara, H&M, Sport Chek, Disney, Sephora and Saje, as well as new restaurants and services. 
And, Bizou really is their ultimate fashion co-tenant. The company offers a well-honed modern retail experience, with the right mix of sophistication and fun. It’s jewellery and accessories are unique, with the majority of its stainless steel and sterling silver collections coming from an inspired group of in-house designers, who travel the world to stay ahead of the latest trends. 
Moving forward, Bizou continues to lay the foundation for its expansion across Canada. Four stores are already in the works for the next six months and the plan is to open four more in 2018. 
Ideal spaces are 450 to 800 sq. ft. in super regional malls across the country, with a particular focus on Ontario. Bizou also continues to build its footprint in its home province of Quebec, where it has more than 90 stores, and the Maritime Region, where it has seven stores in New Brunswick, four in Nova Scotia and one in PEI, as well as Newfoundland, where it has three locations. 
In addition, Bizou continues to grow on the international stage, where it already has boutiques in France and Saudi Arabia.
Think Retail has worked with the talented Bizou team on its growth strategy and entry into new markets for nearly 20 years. We are thrilled to watch this great Canadian retailer go from strength to strength, both here at home and around the globe.
