I haven't heard anything; but then I'm in the US so it doesn't make much difference to me. I guess because I have always had VS & B&BW around me I don't see the fuss when my friends from Calgary plan trips to Montana specifically to go there. lol
I don't care too much for VS to be honest; they have a handful of nice perfumes and lotions from time to time but beyond that I don't think they're anything special. I think their bras are way over-priced; I've never thought theirs are any different in quality than many cheaper brands. They don't even make bras big enough for me to wear anyway. :p Before I finished.. uh... growing up LOL I tried on some bras at VS and even bought one when they were having a sale, and it was seriously no different than the cheaper K Mart/Wal Mart bras I had at the time. The only difference was the name on the tag and the price. I know other women swear VS bras are the best though so it's all individual just like anything else in life.
I do like B&BW though; but it's nothing special to make a trip there... again, cause I have several within an hour to choose from maybe I just take it for granted.

V.S bought La Senza in 2006 so I would't be surprised if they brought it here or found a way to cross promote both brands. As far as B+BW is concerned I have not heard that rumor, but would love if it were true!

I bought Love spell at La Senza on Saturday, so they are bringing in VS stuff . I don't hear good things about bras from there and don't like ones from La Senza either. I do bring underwear from La Senza.
You do take them for granted (JJ!)Bath & Body Works on the other hand is my passion. I have all the sellers on ebay that sell stuff from there on email alert.

Hey thanks for the info MissChickie, this past Christmas I started noticing some Victoria Secret products...lotions...perfumes etc...in La Senza and I wondered why since I always thought they were competitors!
I love VS for their underwear etc...they have A LOT of cute stuff you just can't get at La Senza right now....
As for Bath & Body Works...I guess you can tell from my reviews my stance there since I do take those trips south of the border and stock up everytime! :o)

When I was in Vegas, the girl in the BBW store told me that they would be opening Canadian stores, so I assume that this rumor must have some sort of backing.
In terms of victorias secret, the bras lately have been a bit disappointing.. even tho i have been such a huge fan of them. La Senza has actually gotten surprisingly better though.... :)

Yep, Bath & Body Works is coming. My cousin in London (Ont) just applied for a job at the one that is opening up out there, and she was told that there's one in Toronto already. I haven't seen it, but I hardly have time to browse through malls anymore.
As for Victoria's Secret, I hope if they are opening up here they plan to sell more than just underwear and pyjamas, because the clothes they sell online entice me wayyyyyyy more than their pricey (albeit gorgeous) bras and bikinis.

Yes they are here and I'm going to an event later this week. Will dish all about it after ;)

Here's a list of the Bath & Body Works already open and opening in Canada:
Sadly nothing in Winnipeg or Montreal. :( Guess I'll have to continue to stock up whenever I go to the states.

I was in the Yorkdale Bath and Body Works on Wednesday (day before Grand Openning, it think) ... it was VERY busy... didn't have time to fight the crowd and stand in line, but I will check it out when thing die down! :)

Yes they are finally here under the La Senza umbrella of companies. There are locations at Yorkdale and Erin Mills Town Centre and in London so far. I`m a big fan of the product and glad to see it in Canada... it will be interesting to see what the prices are like as the US has some good deals.
