On 2 April, 2015, HAZELTON’S, Canada’s Leading Gift Basket and Bath and Body retailer, celebrated the Grand Opening of its stylish new design centre and warehouse in Toronto - inviting Canadian and American customers and wholesalers to hear about the brand’s expansion in Canada and its plans for future growth. The new location is at 3816 Victoria Park Avenue near Steele’s in Northern Toronto.
The new retail store opened to the public at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, May 4th with another Grand Opening celebration. Large displays of Gift Baskets, tea products, bath and body products, baby baskets and toys, olive oils and gourmet foods are showcased in the new HAZELTON’S showroom.
The new location has allowed HAZELTON’S to nearly double its retail, warehouse and design centre to 10,000 square feet, where it stores its custom baskets and crates, imported gourmet foods and designer serving ware. The expansion and move was need to provide space for increased customer service and sales volumes, especially during the peak holiday periods.
HAZELTON’S has many local customers but also has clientele across the Canada and United States, including in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Florida, San Francisco and Miami.
The new building provides an additional 4,100 square feet of storage space in the rear of HAZELTON’S' headquarters, and the remaining 3,080 square feet will be used to seat up to 25 Gift Basket Designers.
HAZELTON’S already has invested about $42,000 for minor demolition work on the showroom, warehouse, design centre and kitchen and to professionally clean the space, which was necessary to store the company's products.
