DSW Comes to Canada (plus a Giveaway!)

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 56 0



Great news for all of us Canadian shoe lovers; DSW has finally come to Canada!  I’m a frequent DSW shopper every time I visit the States, and I was so excited to hear that they are opening two Canadian locations tomorrow; one at Heartland Town Centre in Mississauga and one at Woodland Hills in Newmarket.  As a special treat for excited shoppers, the first 200 people in line when the stores open tomorrow (August 7) at 8 am will each receive a $25 gift card!


I got a sneak peek at the Mississauga location last night, and let me tell you, I was so impressed by the huge selection of shoes.  They had so many great basic pumps in every colour imaginable, and a wonderful selection of all different heel heights.  I was trying to behave last night, and limit myself to buying only one pair of shoes, but it was so hard!  I must have tried on 10 different pairs, all of which I wanted.  Here are my favourites from the store, and I ended up purchasing the French Connection kitten heels below.  I was eyeing the gorgeous Ivanka Trump floral pair above, but sadly, they were half a size too big.


To celebrate the opening of DSW in Canada, I’ve partnered with them to giveaway a $100 gift card.  The contest is open to all Canadians, and closes on Monday, August 11, 2014.  You can enter below using the Rafflecopter widget.  Good luck!
