Williams-Sonoma makes Quebec debut with new store design

BY Katherine Boccaccio

San Francisco — Williams-Sonoma said Friday that it will open its first store in Quebec — and its eighth in Canada — which will showcase a new design for the brand.

Opening on Saturday at Carrefour Laval in Laval, Quebec, the new store incorporates added interactive features, a new layout and several terminals where customers can complete purchases throughout the store.

A modernized kitchen is the focal point of the 8,000-sq.-ft. space, and demonstration stations dot the store, allowing trial of cooking tools, electrics, cookware and cutlery.

People come and go. We cannot
People come and go. We cannot force them not to leave because things happen for a reason. That's why we need to be ready at all times. Right now I buy guaranteed fans but perhaps maybe next month they just gone with the wind. That's why I'm learning on how to get guaranteed fans. Anyways I wish all the best the company. I hope you can find better than Michael Prince and Dennis Secor. Good Luck and God Speed.
