Zellers, the iconic department store where the “lowest price is the law” is set to open again after being closed for about 10 years!
On Tuesday, the department store announced in a news release that on March 23, all of its Ontario and Alberta stores within Hudson’s Bay will open back up. Zellers’ e-commerce platform will also relaunch on the same day.
“Zellers is pleased to announce it will open its first locations within Hudson’s Bay in Ontario and Alberta and launch its Zellers.ca e-commerce platform on March 23, 2023,” wrote The Bay in a news release on Tuesday.
Shoppers can expect to buy a variety of lifestyle goods, from home deco and kitchen utensils to baby toys and clothing, at “Everyday Low Prices,” according to the retailer.
Zellers Diner on Wheels will also visit various store locations over the first few opening days, but when the food trucks will roll through has not yet been announced.
“We know Canadian shoppers are smart and savvy, and will be looking for both value and an elevated aesthetic in the products they shop us for. Instead of limited time sales or discounts, Zellers shoppers will know they are getting the best price, every day, no matter when they shop.”
While 25 new locations are slated to open across Canada this year, the following stores will debut ahead of the rest on Thursday, March 23.
Erin Mills Town Centre, Mississauga

As revealed by HBC when it announced the reboot in August, Zellers 2.0 will “tap into the nostalgia of the brand Canadians know and love,” but with “a refreshed identity and a unique and exciting product assortment for families at everyday value.”
