The hotly-anticipated debut of Saks Fifth Avenue was met with much rejoicing by local fashionistas with the opening of its flagship location on Queen Street (there is also a second location at Sherway Gardens). The famed American retailer known for its emphasis on luxury offerings and pristine customer service pulled out all the stops for its Canadian launch, including a dazzling lighting fixture in the fragrance department and a Murano glass display in the ladies shoe department, home to Saks’ signature 10022-Shoe experience. Count the likes of shop-in-shops from Céline, Saint Laurent Paris, Bottega Veneta, Chopard and Boucheron, alongside such exclusive brands as Nest, Meira T, Orsini and Marli among others. —Linda Luong Luck

CF Sherway Gardens’ recent expansion includes new Sporting Life and Andrew’s stores

Shoppers looking to capitalize on post-holiday sales should head to CF Sherway Gardens. The indoor shopping centre west of the downtown core is undergoing a massive $550 million multi-phase redevelopment that will eventually add 210,000 square feet of retail space to the mall. The north expansion was unveiled last fall with a premium roster of brands, including a new Harry Rosen flagship, a relocated Sporting Life, and new boutiques for Free People, Andrew’s, Ted Baker London, Saje Natural Wellness, Loding and H&M, among others. Stores in this new wing have dramatic 30-foot-ceilings and exposure to lots of natural light thanks to a soaring atrium. Saks Fifth Avenue is expected to open in February, with Nordstrom joining the fray in 2017.  —Linda Luong
