“So we’ll have eight stores open this year in North America. In just Canada . . . for 2022 we will open six stores."
It hurts when a retailer puts a lot of trust in a new brand (which Arc'teryx was years ago) and now that brand has decided to compete against those stores. This is not the first time this has happened. We see this as many brands have grown and decide that they can make more money by 'doing it themself'.
If you are looking to replace a brand that has done this to you are about to, contact me and I can offer you a brand like TRESPASS Outerwear that appreciate the retailers and works to ensure success for its retailer partners. No selling directly to customers even online!
