Victoria Secret's coming to Canada?

There was big news in the fashion retail world today, as reported in the Globe and Mail.

The Limited Brands a successful U.S. company best know for Victoria's Secret, the sexy lingerie store, made a friendly take-over bid for Canada's La Senza chain.

We'll have to wait and see what's going to migrate to the Great White North. If I were you, I'd put my money on Victoria's Secret to start the migration.

The Limited Brands:
Victoria's Secret
Bath & Body Works
C.O. Bigelow
The Limited
The White Barn Candle Company
Henri Bendel

What do you think of another big U.S. chain moving north?

  1. wow! that is huge! over La Senza - they have really made a name for themselves for cheapo lingerie in this town as well as with great partnerships programs...I am sure they are going to make a pretty penny.

    Makes me think I should buy stock in Birks as they will probably concede to Tiffany's...

  2. I get very excited when I hear about these U.S. stores coming to town. I always feel a bit torn too. The trade-off is the loss of another successful Canadian business.

    As for the Tiffany's/Birks thing, you just may be on to something. :)
