Week 4: Visit the New Alex and Ani Store
Diehard Alex and Ani fans can now celebrate the official landing of the accessories brand in Canada. And no, I'm not just talking about shipping; full Alex and Ani stand alone stores have opened at Yorkdale Shopping Centre and Upper Canada Mall as of Friday. I couldn't resist popping in to one of the new boutiques to check out the brand's "charming" Canadian debut in person, and was pleased to find a sophisticated shopping space with an endless array of charms from all of their collections. Most notably, the Charity By Design collection is available on our northern soil for the first time, and 20% of the purchase price is donated to 11 charitable organizations around the world. Should you be looking to upgrade your arm party any time soon, this is most definitely the place to do it. Alex and Ani is located Yorkdale Shopping Centre (3401 Dufferin St.) and Upper Canada Mall (17600 Yonge St.).
