Canadian retailer to launch one of its first US stores at Walden Galleria on Friday, July 20th
Buffalo, NY: Showcase, the award-winning, Canadian-based retailer, is set to open today at Walden Galleria on the upper level near Dick’s Sporting Goods. Headquartered just outside of Toronto, Showcase has built a network of over 100 stores in Canada and is now opening its first stores across the border, choosing Walden Galleria as one of the brand’s first locations. An official grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for 4:00 p.m. today with exclusive 20% OFF coupons available for the first 100 customers.
“Showcase offers a unique customer experience that encourages guests to interact with products before purchasing,” says Alex Corbelli, Marketing Director at Walden Galleria. “This type of engagement, combined with offering exclusive, hard-to-find trends has led to an expansion into the US that we’re thrilled to be a part of!”
Showcase specializes in emerging retail trends in health, beauty, home, and toys. From the mainstream (Finishing Touch Flawless and magnetic eyelashes), to the intriguing (the no! no! hair remover), or to the wacky (Canada’s largest selection of fidget spinners), all Showcase products are joyfully retailed in a fun and interactive retail environment. Showcase’s ability to identify and monetize emerging trends before other retailers is a function of proprietary trend technology, financial investment theory, and entrepreneurial culture. The result is an agile supply chain that translates to more firsts-to-market, exclusives, and industry-leading productivity.
Showcase, founded in 1994, plans to open 100 stores in the USA as well as a US distribution center, to be completed by 2020.
