Harry Rosen and Davids Footwear join for national expansionNovember 8, 2017
“In a move both parties say was years in the making, luxury menswear retailer Harry Rosen has entered into a joint venture with Davids Footwear stores to expand the luxury shoe retailer’s brand across Canada.
The move unites two different generations of two Canadian retail families that have been doing business on the same strip of Bloor St. since 1971.”
Retail consultant Farla Efros, president, HRC Advisory, said it’s a great idea. She said that while Harry Rosen is a Canadian brand, it has an international reputation.
“It will give Davids a great opportunity to grow and learn. I think if they did it on their own, they would run up against the bigger chains with more capital behind them.”
