Leading Canadian luxury e-retailer SSENSE known for its directional retail mix and bespoke editorial vertical, announces the opening of SSENSE MONTRÉAL, their flagship concept store.
Located at 418 rue Saint Sulpice, and representing the first building in Canada designed by world-renowned David Chipperfield Architects, the new space is an expansive 13,000 sq. ft. five-storey historic 19th century building with deliberately exposed concrete architecture.
Of course as an e-retailer, they know a thing or two about technology – the new store boasts an appointment-based personal shopping model facilitated through a proprietary interface (montreal.ssense.com) and stylist app. This allows for their inventory of over 20,000 products available on ssense.com to be entirely accessible for clients to try on within 24 hours of scheduling an appointment on the website.
“SSENSE MONTRÉAL is the physical manifestation of everything we stand for at SSENSE. It is backed by 15 years of insights gathered on both ssense.com and our previous retail location and I am confident we have established a blueprint for retail in the future E-commerce enables scale but is suboptimal in important ways, especially fostering human connection. A seamless integration with physical spaces fills the gaps in the customer experience. I am so proud to launch SSENSE MONTRÉAL, a space for our community and a space for Montréal.”
– Rami Atallah, co-founder and chief executive officer of SSENSE.
