ACBN Marketplace targeting ex-Nordstrom space, bringing local focus, diverse products & community events. #NewStore #ShopLocal 🎉🛍️

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 16, 2023/ — ACBN Marketplace, an innovative and growing retail platform is excited to announce its pending expansion into a larger retail space formerly occupied by Nordstrom. This move follows the recent closure of Nordstrom, as the international retail giant exits the Canadian market. ACBN Marketplace is poised to bring a refreshing and locally-focused shopping experience to Canadian consumers.

Targeting the heart of Toronto, the new ACBN Marketplace store will occupy the spacious, modern retail space with a variety of vendors from the African Diaspora. The grand opening is waiting for negotiations to finish but are currently identifying additional vendors to join the store, featuring special promotions, giveaways, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome the community and celebrate the launch.

“As Nordstrom leaves the Canadian market, we see an opportunity to fill the void and provide a new and improved shopping experience for our customers,” said Ryan Knight, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of the Afro Caribbean Business Network (ACBN). “Our goal is to make shopping more personal, enjoyable, and community-driven, ensuring we cater to the diverse needs and preferences of our customers.”

The expanded ACBN Marketplace will feature a carefully curated selection of products from local artisans and businesses, as well as popular national and international brands. With an emphasis on sustainability and supporting the local economy, shoppers can expect a unique mix of fashion, accessories, home goods, and more, all backed by friendly and knowledgeable staff.

In addition to a wide range of products, ACBN Marketplace is committed to making a positive impact on the community. The store will host regular events, workshops, and pop-up shops to support and showcase local talent, and will collaborate with community organizations to give back to the local area through charitable initiatives.
