Aritzia is a Canadian women’s fashion retailer positioned at the upper end of the mass consumer market. The company has a strong footprint in Canada with 67 locations, and a growing presence in the United States with 25 stores located in both shopping centers and other urban shopping destinations. Aritzia designs and sells exclusive inhouse brands, including TNA, Wilfred, and Babaton, and carries select products of leading designers such as Adidas. The company enjoys high satisfaction amongst the coveted 20-40 year-old women’s demographic. It is positioned above larger fashion retailers like H&M and The Gap but well below European luxury designers in terms of price, brand perception and quality. We believe Aritzia is a best-in-class fashion retailer, with a long runway of growth in the United States, trading at a reasonable valuation.
