Yummie by Heather Thomson Partners with Panaxis Inc. to Expand Canadian Distribution
March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Yummie by
Heather Thomson, the
shapewear, ready-to-wear and denim brand, announces a partnership with Panaxis Inc. to expand its Canadian distribution. Effective
March 2013, Panaxis Inc. will distribute Yummie by
Heather Thomson shapewear to leading retailers across
Hudson's Bay Co. and independent retailers.
Panaxis Inc., the
Toronto-based leading supplier in
Canada, is a major distributor for American-based brands, consisting of hosiery, intimates, shapewear and ready-to-wear, including
HUE, Lodis and Wooden Ships. Panaxis' strategic alliances with existing U.S branded product has resulted in a strong Canadian market share and long-standing relationships with department and specialty stores.
Panaxis Inc. will launch its partnership with Yummie by
Heather Thomson by introducing the Spring '13 collection in over 40 locations of
Hudson's Bay in addition to specialty boutiques. Committed to inventory that will take Yummie Tummie
intimates shapewear through the Spring/Summer '13 season, Panaxis will continue to expand Yummie by
Heather Thomson's presence across
Canada through Fall/Holiday '13 by supplying retailers with the brand's ready-to-wear and denim collections.
"I am so excited about our new partnership with Panaxis," said
Heather Thomson, Founder and CCO of Yummie by
Heather Thomson. "Our Canadian customer makes up a large part of our business, and as a brand, we're looking forward to expanding our presence by launching in new doors throughout the country, especially with Panaxis's strong foothold at
Canada's leading department store,
Hudson's Bay. Yummie has a long-term relationship with Lord & Taylor in the US, so focusing our expansion on their partnering retailer in
Canada seemed like a very natural and organic fit."
