No Northern Ontario locations in Zellers relaunch

The company's opening 25 stores across the country

Zellers is back, but Northern Ontario didn't make the list of locations for a brick-and-mortar store. 

The iconic Canadian brand has revealed the 25 launch locations it will be opening this year. While there are eight Ontario locations, there are no stores in Northern Ontario. 

The Ontario locations are in Mississauga, Burlington, London, Scarborough, St. Catherines, Cambridge and Ottawa. There will also be stores in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec and Nova Scotia.

"Opening in communities across the country, the brick-and-mortar locations will complement the first-ever ecommerce site, ultimately bringing Zellers to nearly every community in Canada," reads the Hudson Bay news release announcing the launch locations.

The company says Zellers will offer a selection of "design-led" products for home decor, toys, baby, clothes and pets. 

"At launch, the Zellers experience within Hudson's Bay will be between 8,000-10,000 square feet, depending on location. The Zellers in-store experience and are planned to launch simultaneously," says The Bay. 

TimminsToday has reached out to Zellers to confirm if a store will be opening in Timmins or another Northern Ontario location.

The company said there are no details to share beyond what's in the press release.
