Hudson's Bay Queen Street, Toronto

Hudson's Bay Queen Street, Toronto

Hudson's Bay Queen Street is the flagship store of Hudson's Bay department stores. The 1896 sandstone building located on Queen Street slightly west of Yonge Street was built by Toronto firm of Burke and Horwood for Simpson's Department Store in the Romanesque Revival style with Chicago School influences.

The store outgrew the capacity of the structure by 1900, leading to the first of several expansions. Burke and Horwood returned with additions in 1907 and 1923. The largest expansion came in 1929 with Chapman and Oxley's nine-floor Art Deco addition (facing Bay and Richmond) capped by the Arcadian Court. When construction completed, the store occupied two full city blocks.

Hudson's Bay Queen Street focuses on high-end fashion apparel, accessories, and home goods. Among these are iconic Point Blankets, coats, bed sheets, bags, T-shirts, lotions, scents, candles, and many more. The store features about 93,000 square meters (1,000,000 sq ft) of shopping space.
