The Andrews Story: 25 Years of Service

Andrews was established in 1990 by Darren Mason, Beverley Lerner, and Cheryl McEwen with an inspiration to create a Toronto shopping destination that delivered quality and selection. With the vision of developing an evolving collection of the very best of European and North American fashion for Toronto consumers at the forefront of development, the Andrews concept was born. A department store selection with boutique intimacy and service served as the heart of the Andrews brand, which is still alive today.

The company established Andrews’ flagship store in Yorkville in 1991, and soon after opened its second location in 1999 at Bayview Village. Andrews’ third store, Sherway Gardens will continue to focus on wardrobing, offering shoppers a continuously evolving collection that features local designers including Mackage, Smythe, Greta Constantine, Suzi Roher, and Line, as well as European designers such as Fabiana Filippi. The retailer will continue to thrive in womenswear, with highlights including its broad selection of evening wear, which features notable brands such as Nicole Miller and Badgley Mischka.
