Zellers is Coming Back and Here are the First 25 Locations

The Hudson’s Bay Company has already confirmed that it will be bringing the Zellers format stores back to Canada. And now, the retailer has announced its first 25 locations across the country.

The Zellers store experiences within Hudson’s Bay will be between 8,000 and 10,000 square feet based on the location. The brick-and-mortar stores will be joined by the first-ever Zellers.ca e-commerce site. The stores will offer home décor, toys, baby, apparel, and pet products: it doesn’t appear as though Zellers will offer tech products. It will feature the same signature, Canada-proud red and white colours that fans of the brand from way back when remember.

Here’s a list of the upcoming Zellers locations in Canada:

The Hudson’s Bay Company is really banking on the nostalgia factor to lead to success for the revived brand. If Target’s attempt at becoming another value big box store in Canada was any indication, however, Canadians aren’t really looking for another competitor.

With that said, retail competition is a healthy thing. The option to have more budget-friendly items sold through Hudson’s Bay may be welcome by Canadians, especially in today’s economic climate where many are pinching pennies any way they can. This, however, will hinge on the Zellers’ selection of brands, categories, and, above all, pricing.

Online will be a challenge, too: competing with the behemoths that are Amazon and Walmart in this space will arguably be Zellers’ biggest hurdle. Currently, the Zellers.ca Website does not advertise any products but simply welcomes visitors to the site as they await more details. Stay tuned.
