The rumors are true; Zellers returns to Canada. The favorite destination for family shopping trips, quick pick-ups and Hilary Duff-inspired finds closed most of its stores a decade ago, but it’s still one of the few Canadian retailers sparking nostalgia through the generations. During this restart in 2023, in-store shops are expected to open in select Hudson’s Bay locations across the country. In addition, the brand will launch a First time e-commerce site. A big thank you to all those Zellers fan accounts and #bringbackzellers hashtags for their magic.
