Canadian department store group Hudson’s Bay Company is pushing ahead with its reinvention and merchandising plans. The retailer plans to introduce five further Topshop shop-in-shops and, by next year, an outlet of US-based Kleinfeld Bridal salon at its Toronto flagship.

“We’re searching around the world for fantastic concepts that we can bring to Canadians,” chief executive Richard Baker said. “We have the locations, we have the real estate, and we have the infrastructure.”
