For 25 years Indigo has been its customers’ self-declared "Happy Place", a community haven of joyful discovery. Today, the company has announced they are taking this concept one step further by opening the doors this fall to a radically different 16,000 ft2 shopping experience. This new urban concept store at The Well in the King West neighbourhood of Toronto marks an evolution for the brand. With books at its core, the company is transforming its product assortment, digital ecosystem and instore experiences to fully realize its goal of helping customers live their lives on purpose.

The location has been carefully chosen to tap into the ground-breaking concept behind The Well development in the King West neighbourhood of Toronto. The Well will be a unique mix of shops, restaurants, a fresh food market, workspaces and residences that set the stage for innovative collaborations and meaningful experiences in culture, entertainment, community and wellness.

“This location is a perfect fit and is in total harmony with our vision. Indigo will be at the forefront of creating an experiential destination, adding value for residents and visitors to this new vibrant community,” continues Ruis.
