Loding was founded in France in 1998. The first North American store was built in Toronto using the long-established design that was developed for Europe and Asia. It was not well received. Moncur Design Associates Inc. was contracted to reconcept the store for the North American market. Loding First Canadian Place (shown above) opened in November of 2014 followed by Loding Sherway Gardens, an expanded new location in Sherway Gardens shopping centre, and Loding Union Station is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018.
