Marshalls to debut in Canada

Toronto -- A report Thursday by the Toronto Star said that Marshalls will open its first Canadian stores in 2011. Four new stores are currently slated to open next year, according to RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust, which is handling the market entry for Marshalls.

The first three Marshalls are set to open next spring, according to RioCan president and CEO Ed Sonshine. A fourth store, to be housed in a 50,000-sq.-ft. former nightclub, will not open until later in 2011.
