I'm sad to see Jacob go. They had great clothes for reasonable prices. Have you tried Le Chateau? They have cute clothes too.

Hudson Bay especially the Queen Street store and Yorkdale locations. Great selection & variety - Top Shop, Dex, Vero Moda, Design Lab, Theory, just to name a few. Lots of sales.
Forever XXI always has a huge selection & lots of new offerings.
Others: Zara, H&M, Honey

I believe smart set is on its way out of Canada too, along with Mexx. I love the variety at Forever21 plus sizes and varied stock often. Not bad prices either.

Mexx just closed it's doors in my local shopping centre. If you have one close by, you should see if they have any liquidation sales going on.

I know, mexx had great work ensembles. smart set too.

I remember Le Chateau as a teen. I will give it a try again.
Zara and Bay definitely. Noticing my taste changed over the years. Like the more classic lasting pieces these days.

what I love about H&M is that there are styles for all ages. their basics are priced really great, then you can just buy some of their trendy pieces to update the look. Think Jean shorts, a great tee with an awesome scarf and heels.. The shorts and tees can be 10 years old, but the trendy stuff makes you look (and feel) very on trend.

Smart Set is definitely closing. Reitmans had tried to revamp them, but they're just not hitting the mark. It won't be for at least a year. Last I heard it was going to be over 18 months, and that was a couple of months ago. You won't be seeing any liquidation prices until the last month or two of it being in business. Smart Set was never junior sizes though.

Forever 21 is pretty cheap, but the quality is cheap, too. RW & Co is a higher quality brand in comparison, sort of like Jacob I think. H&M is always stylish. Zara is more expensive. The Bay is great because they have a larger price range, with a ton of different brands for different age ranges. Ricki's is nice, too. Suzy Shier is another one, I think that's still around.

Jacob did have some pretty good finds. I think Banana Republic, Reitman's or even Old Navy would have some similar stuff and not too pricey.

How about Winners ? Would that work for you?
I Usually find a wide range plus accessories - and the US counterpart when I head S to TJMaxx .
