Hot Canadian brand signs lease for first U.S. store


A popular goose has found a nest in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood.

Canada Goose, best known for its signature goose-down jacket with Arctic Circle logo and fur-trimmed hood, has signed a lease for an approximate 4,400-sq.-ft. store on Wooster Street, The Real Deal reported. The asking rent for the space, according to the Real Deal, was $550 a foot.

Although the Toronto-based outerwear brand currently does not operate any stores in the United States, its outerwear is available here in select department stores and specialty stores. Canada Goose has been around for decades. But its signature jacket has exploded in popularity during the past couple of years, fueled by its embrace by models and celebrities and high-profile exposure at such trendy events as the Sundance Film Festival.

The company was founded in the 1950s as a clothing company. Its parkas were later designed for Antarctica scientists. In 2013, Bain Capital took a majority stake in Canada Goose with a goal of accelerating its global expansion.
