and.. OMG TOPSHOP IS COMING TO CANADAAAA!!

Oddly, they are bringing it here through the Canadian department store The Bay. I'm curious to see how many Topshop stores will open up within The Bay. The department store has been really trying to up their image in the more popular malls like Yorkdale but I think Its gone a little unnoticed. Adding a Topshop in is a move that will sure draw some attention. They also have the right to open stand alone stores. I wonder how popular Topshop will be in Canada? Forever 21 is always packed but has very few locations here. I'm excited anyways and glad I have an amazing boyfriend who takes me to malls like Yorkdale and Vaughnmills! Topshop is having some events and popup stores this summer in Ontario. Here is a list via marketwire.

"One-weekend-only" Pop-up Location – Queen West and Soho Street
June 17 to 19, 2011
The "Topshop and Topman Summer Takeover" launches with Pop-up locations of Topshop and Topman unlike anything Toronto has seen before. The temporary stores will feature summer essentials, free frozen treats to keep shoppers cool, and a shopping soundtrack provided by high-profile DJs. The first 200 customers each day will receive a limited-edition reusable fabric bag, and the weekend shopper deemed to have the best Toronto Street Style will win tickets to the Yorkdale VIP Opening Party in September, and a $500 shopping spree with a Topshop Topman Personal Shopper.

The Capsule will be in The Bay Queen Street throughout summer to get Torontonians ready for the Yorkdale launch.
"Farewell to Summer" Topshop and Topman Pop-ups in Muskoka

This will be the last chance to shop Topshop and Topman before the Yorkdale store opening, so get your hands on it before anyone else.

Are you excited for Topshop? As much as I would kill to go to these popup stores I think the lines would kill me.
