Canada will soon be getting a big dose of the USA's mass market mall culture—J. Crew, Gap, Bath & Body Works, and Victoria's Secret are all planning major store openings up north in the near future. J. Crew is opening its first shop in the country—with plans to expand to 15 locations throughout—the Gap will open 10 outlet stores, Victoria's secret will open four "10,000-square-foot mega-stores," and Bath & Body Works will be doubling the number of its Canadian retail locations.
