TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2022– Sephora Canada is proud to announce its milestone 100th store location with the opening of Sephora Crossroads Station Shopping Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The grand opening will take place on November 18th 2022, marking the retailer’s fourth location in the province of Manitoba.
In tandem with the opening and as part of Sephora Canada’s ongoing commitment to championing a diverse and equitable beauty community in Canada, the beauty retailer will donate $100,000 to Native Women’s Association of Canada. The donation is an extension of Sephora Canada’s ongoing partnership with NWAC. In October 2021, the beauty retailer worked with the organization to conduct a first-of-its-kind National Roundtable on Indigenous Beauty, the findings from which were later published in the Report of the National Roundtable on Indigenous Beauty, in June 2022.
To mark Sephora Canada’s milestone 100th store opening, the beauty retailer will host special client events and promotions in Winnipeg and across the country. On November 17th, clients are invited to attend an opening party at Sephora Crossroads Station Shopping Centre from 7:00PM-9:00PM CDT. The following Canadian flagship store locations will equally host special in-store activations and surprises on November 18th: Sephora Toronto Eaton Centre (Toronto, Ontario), Sephora Ste. Catherine (Montreal, Quebec), and Sephora Robson (Vancouver, BC). Clients can learn more about in-store events by contacting the listed store locations.
On November 18th, in conjunction with the grand opening of Sephora Crossroads Station Shopping Centre, Sephora Canada will also give the first 100 clients who spend $100 or more a $50 gift card, at each of its 100 store locations nationwide.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our brick-and-mortar presence in Manitoba with the opening of Sephora Crossroads Station Shopping Centre, and to be celebrating this momentous 100th store milestone. Our mission has always been to make our unrivaled in-store beauty retail experience accessible to clients from coast to coast, and this is something we’ll continue to strive for as we expand our presence in the Canadian market even further,” says Thomas Haupt, the newly appointed General Manager of Sephora Canada. “This opening is also an important occasion for us to celebrate with our clients in Canada, and to show gratitude to communities at large – they are the beating heart of our business and we are proud to serve them.”
Since the opening of Sephora Canada’s first retail location in 2004, the leading omni-beauty retailer has rapidly expanded its brick-and-mortar presence across the country, with the goal of making its in-store experience accessible to the sprawling Canadian beauty community. In 2022 alone, the retailer opened 14 new stores in Canada, including flagship doors such as Sephora Toronto Union Station, the retailer’s first store inside a major Canadian transit hub.
