Kiehl's Opens in Winnipeg

Kiehl's Opens Wednesday

They only have 135 stores around the world but Kiehl's is an an iconic New York store that has been around since 1851. Each store as motorbike in it and Winnipeg is no different. The bike in the 1000 foot second floor location has a 1969 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide. The store is now a division of L'Oreal.

The store describes itself as an "old apothecary" concept.

Polo Park continues to pursue exclusive retailers to its location. Any local retailers would fare far better in the regional malls or at street level than hope to get into the mall now. In fact, many Canadian retailers will have to look over their shoulders in the next months.

There is lots of space in Garden City Shopping Centre, just ask Byron Guss of Rio Can who supposedly is in charge of filling the empty spaces. I had a long phone conversation with him. The North End of Winnipeg is sadly lacking in just about everything.

Laurie: Think it might change with the large GoodLife Fitness going up in there?
