WINNIPEG — Zellers, a former discount Canadian retailer, has revealed the first 25 Canadian locations for its comeback.

Hudson’s Bay owns the nostalgic Zellers brand and is resurrecting it for Canadian shoppers later this year.

Zellers will open within existing Hudson’s Bay stores across the country and have dedicated retail spaces spanning between 8,000 to 10,000 sq. ft. To accompany the brick-and-mortar locations, Zellers will also launch the first-ever Zellers.ca e-commerce website.

Winnipeg will see one Zellers location (for now) located at St. Vital Centre.

Zellers, which was founded in 1931, was acquired by HBC in 1978. HBC announced in 2011 it had planned on selling most of its Zellers leases to Target and closed its Canadian stores in 2013. Target’s last location would then close in 2015 after a failed attempt in the Canadian retail space.
