The re-opening of Zellers stores is an exciting and nostalgic event for many Canadians, who have fond memories of shopping at the popular department store.

For generations, Zellers was a household name in Canada, offering a wide range of affordable products, from clothing to home goods, and everything in between.

The return of this beloved Canadian institution is sure to evoke feelings of nostalgia and excitement for many Canadians, as they look forward to once again shopping at a store that holds a special place in their hearts.

On March 23, 2023, Zellers will open its first locations within Hudson's Bay in Ontario and Alberta, as well as the launch of its e-commerce platform. 

Ontario Locations:

  • Erin Mills Town Centre, Mississauga
  • Burlington Mall, Burlington
  • White Oaks Mall, London
  • Scarborough Town Centre, Scarborough
  • Pen Centre Shopping Plaza, St. Catharines
  • Cambridge Centre, Cambridge
  • Rideau Centre, Ottawa
  • St. Laurent Centre, Ottawa

With 25 locations set to open within Hudson's Bay stores across the country, Zellers is gearing up to become the new go-to for lifestyle and home products, packed full of low prices, design, and a hint of Canadian nostalgia.

Unlike other retailers who offer limited-time sales or discounts, Zellers shoppers can be confident they are getting the best price every day, no matter when they shop.

Available products will be built on three pillars: quality, design, and value, and customers will find what they need in key lifestyle categories, including kitchen and bath, accent furniture and home decor, organization and storage, baby and kids toys and apparel, pets, and apparel basics for men and women.

And, for those that miss the Zellers Family Restaurant from way back in the day, to celebrate the opening, Zellers Diner on Wheels will visit different store locations over the first few opening days. 

So, mark your calendars for March 23, 2023, and be ready to experience the new and improved Zellers. Whether you prefer to shop in-store or online at, you're sure to find quality, design, and value, all with everyday low prices.
