Banana Republic and Michael Kors Coming to Winnipeg
The additions to Polo Park
Michael Kors will be opening on the second floor of Polo Park in the month of August. The sought after designer who dressed a stylish Rene Russo in The Thomas Crown Affair has a about a dozen stores across Canada but this will be the city's first location. The store specializes in clothing, handbags, shoes and other Kors designs. The store will be located near Lululemon and American Eagle.
For many young shoppers, it has been a long time coming to get a Banana Republic. It arrives at Polo Park around the same time as Michael Kors. The store will be located near by RW&Co. The company is owned by The Gap and sells more luxurious goods than its sister stores.
Polo Park continues to transform itself. More of the stores now will be international and exclusive to the mall.
