An anonymous source has notified us that Victoria’s Secret is set to open its first Winnipeg location at Polo Park Shopping Centre. Unconfirmed at this point.
Rumour is that they will be taking over the Cleo and Ricki’s locations (both stores have already posted relocation signs). La Senza Express (owned by Victoria’s Secret) has also been closed supposedly to make room for the mother of all lingerie stores.
Victoria’s Secret opened their first stores outside the United States in three Canadian cities: Edmonton in August 2010, Toronto in August 2010 and Calgary in May 2011. Edmonton and Calgary have the only four locations in Western Canada, which includes the West Edmonton Mall, Kingsway Mall, Chinook Centre, and Southcentre Mall, while eight locations were opened in Toronto, including Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Toronto Eaton Centre, Upper Canada Mall, Mapleview Centre in Burlington, Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke and Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga in which holds the largest store in Canada. Quebec’s first store will open in 2012 at Carrefour Laval. Atlantic Canada’s first store will also open in 2012 in the Halifax Shopping Centre.
