U.S. shoe chain DSW coming to Toronto

A few months ago, I rounded up a list of the stores we Torontonians most wish would expand into Toronto. Local shoe lovers, it looks like your specific subset of prayers have been answered: Designer Shoe Warehouse, better known as DSW, is finally expanding into Canada under the umbrella of Town Shoes, with two new stores opening August 7.

The U.S. chain's first Toronto-area store will be at Heartland Centre in Mississauga; there's also one set to open at Woodland Hills in Newmarket. At this point, they seem to be skipping urban proximity in favour of outlet-store-worthy size: both stores will offer about 20,000 square feet of discounted shoes by the likes of Nine West, Cole Haan and Sam Edelman.

Now, then, Uniqlo - got something to announce? Anything. Anything at all.
