Canadian e-commerce site The September branches out with a retail location that redefines the shopping experience for Canada’s well-heeled set  

TORONTO,ON - July 05, 2017 - The luxury online designer shoe destination, The September, may be Canada’s best-kept style secret among the country’s fashion-lovers and society page regulars. Launched in 2013, Founder and CEO Christine Carlton has dedicated the past four years to curating selections of world renowned shoe brands and collections, in addition to building relationships with her loyal clientele. The brand has quickly become known for an unmatched quality of customer service that leaves no element untouched. Enhancing the retail experience even further, The September has taken the brand to new heights with the launch of a physical space called The September Townhouse.

The September launched with a vision to disrupt the traditional shoe shopping experience with an alternative designed to make it easier and more affordable for Canadians to acquire designer shoes. Carrying the world’s leading brands such as Jimmy Choo, Alexandre Birman, Stuart Weitzman, Aquazzura, and Lanvin, The September products are available in just a few clicks and without any additional fees. With The September, customers can purchase products with ease and receive a beautifully wrapped package straight to their doorstep. As an added – very well received – bonus, The September offers complimentary shipping, free returns, and no additional duty charges.

“The September was created to transform the way Canadians shop, taking it from a frequently tedious experience to a joyous one,” says The September’s Founder and CEO Christine Carlton. “Online shopping has opened us up to limitless options and convenience, but scoring fabulous finds for Canadians typically involved steep fees and exhausting return policies. We stepped in to change this online experience.”

Christine Carlton definitely knows a thing or two about fancy footwear, having worked with the Holt Renfrew brand for 17 years, most recently, as the Vice President of Accessories. Her expertise has resulted in an eye for the most coveted styles as she travels the globe in pursuit of new additions to the collection. Her ability to curate has drawn loyal repeat customers and The September has seen sales double every year since the brand’s inception.


Satisfying the craving for the touch-and-feel, in-person experience, The September recently launched The September Townhouse. Neither a pop-up nor a simple brick and mortar frontage, the innovative, shoe-filled spot in Toronto’s Queen East neighbourhood offers the ease and efficiency of an e-commerce site with the look and feel of a luxury shopping experience. Drawing shoe-loving ladies from across the country, it also functions as the headquarters of The September, offering the bonus of an in-house team of experts with a flair for fabulous footwear.

Catering to lovers of life’s finer things – but offering an unpretentious vibe – The September Townhouse hosts a variety of quietly glamorous and refined events, from private shopping consultations and personalized trunk shows, to designer launches, pop-up stores, art exhibits, and client events.

Prices range from $100 to $1,800+ and include brands from Adidas to Vince, and Jimmy Choo to Alexandre Birman. Purchase online at www.theseptember.com or at The September Townhouse, located at 535 Queen Street East, Suite 7, Toronto, Ontario M5A 1V1.
