Zellers, a nostalgic discount brand, has unveiled the first 25 locations across Canada for its retail comeback.
Hudson’s Bay Co. first announced plans to revive the Zellers brand in August of last year. The brand will return as an e-commerce site and as an “in-store experience” in select Hudson’s Bay stores across the country.

The Zellers department store was founded in 1931 and acquired by HBC in 1978. It operated as the discount division of its flagship Hudson’s Bay department stores, with the slogan “Where the lowest price is the law.”
In 2011, HBC announced plans to sell the majority of its remaining Zellers leases to Target Corp., closing most stores by 2013.
Zellers’ return comes as high inflation and higher interest rates stretch Canadian household budgets.

The timeline on the Zellers comeback is still fuzzy, with a press release from HBC signalling the experiences would start to roll out in the spring. Motorcycle accident toronto today reached out to HBC on Wednesday but spokespeople said they could not provide a more specific timeline.
Zealous Zellers shoppers can sign up on the company’s website for updates on the e-commerce rollout, which will coincide with the in-store retail launch.
