Located at Dixie Outlet Mall in Mississauga, a source tells us that the brand is hoping to launch during the first week of October. The Nike Clearance Store will take over the old Michaels location, next door to Designer Depot, and will join notable retailers like Levi’s, Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, and Aldo, to name a few. Unlike the Nike Factory Store, which carries made-for-factory items, the Nike Clearance Store will carry discounted full-price apparel, footwear and accessories from regular Nike stores, which means it will be a treasure trove of past seasons’ best.
