cb2 Plans Toronto 2011 Opening

What is cb2? It's Crate & Barrel's modern, hip & trendy younger sibling. The company is scheduled to arrive in Toronto early next year, with plans to open their first Canadian store at the southeast corner of Queen & Bathurst. This location has housed The Big Bop since 1985, but as of January 31st, the nightclub/music hall closed it doors.

  1. I am so excited for the good news. I think CB2 is a fabulous store for the exact reasons you mentioned. I bought a few items from there but I had to have them shipped to my uncle in the states and then brought over the border - such a hassle!

  2. Blogs are so informative where we get lots of information on any topic. Nice job keep it up!!
