TORONTO -- Department store retailer Saks Fifth Avenue plans to hire 365 people over the next six months as it prepares to launch in Canada.
The company says the combination of full- and part-time positions will staff its Toronto stores on Queen Street and at Sherway Gardens.
Both locations are slated to launch in spring 2016.
The jobs will cover a variety of in-store roles from its cosmetics department to footwear and visual merchandising, the company said.
Hudson's Bay Co. (TSX:HBC), owns and operates Saks after it acquired the New York-based company about two years ago.
The retailer plans to bring seven Saks Fifth Avenue stores to Canada and as many as 25 stores under the Saks Off Fifth discount brand.
