For its 175th anniversary celebration in September, Holt Renfrew went all out with a wave of appearances by designers and celebrities, including Sir Elton John at the Bloor Street flagship, a street party in Toronto, a 12-minute film tribute to the store (in 3-D) on the flagship facade, a stepped-up awards program for employees and a slew of commemorative products from designers, in Holt’s signature magenta.
“We approached our key vendors to share in the celebration and create unique and exclusive products. They became keepsakes,” said Pat Di Bratto, Holt’s senior vice president of buying and merchandising.
