Fogal Hosiery Boutique in Toronto is Closing Down

fogal boutique in toronto is closing down out of business

Sad news! I just got an e-mail from Fogal in Toronto saying that they are closing down and having a great sale. Vancouver boutique already closed in the summer, and now Toronto location follows.

When Vancouver boutique closed down, I remembered bad service experience and the fact that Wolford is around the corner, and thought that it’s no wonder. But Toronto boutique actually had really good customer service!

One last boutique left in North American is in New York City. I have no news yet if it’s shutting down or not, maybe some New Yorker can tell me.

Someone told me that this is their strategy now to close down the retail stores and start to sell Fogal brand in other big upscale department stores. Fogal’s stay in Canada was quite brief (2012-2014), perhaps other legwear brands presented a lot of competition since not many people know even what Fogal is.

Below is a photo of Fogal seamless Una tights from that boutique.

    Actually, Fogal has been in Toronto a lot longer than you think. It used to have a stand-alone store in the 1980s-90s and then was sold out of upscale retailer Holt Renfrew before returning to the stand-alone model. They were great quality and the selection of colours was particularly wide, but what with their high price and the general downward spiral in hosiery wear, I can understand them exiting the Canadian market.
