Roots Canada has put down retail roots in Los Angeles with a new concept store that is destined to sprout elsewhere.
Although the Toronto-based brand has an extensive network of 115 stores in its home country, it has yet to proliferate retail in the U.S., where the L.A. store on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in the Venice neighborhood is its fifth unit. The 700-square-foot store, which opened June 12, showcases Roots Canada in an intimate, upscale environment that may turn the perception that American shoppers have of the brand if they are familiar with it only from its past association with the Olympics.
