The Canuks now have access to a brand on the verge of change, Express. It was just announced that Toronto and Calgary will have the first locations. The specialty retail apparel chain operating more than 600 stores, has arrived north of the border this September and opened its first location at Fairview in Toronto. Express plans to open a total of six stores in Canada by the end of 2011, and an additional 50 stores across the country over the next five years. In addition to Fairview Mall, Express will also open at Lime Ridge in September. In November, Express will have three locations opening in Calgary at Southcentre, Chinook Centre and Market Mall as well as an additional store in Toronto at Square One.
