House Of Hoops Has Finally Arrived In Canada
TORONTO,ON–History was made in the retail industry early Friday morning. Sneaker heads prayers have been finally answered as the first ever House of Hoops by Footlocker opened in Canada.
This location will be Canada’s main source for sneakers and its appropriately located in the heart of the city in Toronto.
The night before the grand opening NPH was invited to the launch party where local celebrities and sneaker fiends were able to get their first look at not only the store’s design, but also the future of sports retail. Some were fortunate enough to bid on some limited edition products, such as, the Nike Lebron X Corks, which were auctioned off for $1,500.
All proceeds from the auction went to a great cause to help under privileged kids in the Toronto Sports Leadership Program (TSLP).
Now that the ground breaking store has opened plans to expand into major Canadian markets will surely be discussed. Rumored locations include Montreal, Vancouver, and another GTA location in the city’s west end as possibly sites for the HOH brand to make an impact.
Eight shoes in eight days is the campaign to kick off the first week in Canada, and if the opening day line up which began a night before the store’s debut is any indication, Foot Locker and House of Hoops brand will be effective in their mission to become apart of Canadian basketball culture.
