Drake General Store Opens new Outpost in Ottawa

Posted by Drake General Store, 2 months, 3 weeks ago

We’re so excited to announce our latest retail location at Hudson’s Bay Rideau Street in downtown Ottawa. It’s the first outpost outside of Toronto and comes fresh off multiple collaborations with Hudson’s Bay over the last year, including a pop-up-turned-permanent shop in their flagship store on Yonge Street and a World Pride pop-up shop in June 2014.
