A Newcomer Asked Where To Shop For Clothes in Canada & TikTok Had All The Answers


If you’re new to Canada, you probably know that shopping can get a little overwhelming.

This is because not only are there numerous unfamiliar brands, but you will likely need an entirely new wardrobe to accommodate the four distinct seasons in Canada.

This could explain why a newcomer recently sought advice from Julia, a popular TikToker known for sharing fashion inspiration and style-related content on her handle @beingjulia, for advice.

The first website she recommends is none other than fast fashion retailer H&M.

“H&M’s pretty good especially if you sign up to be a member, they have a lot of perks. They have free shipping over $40 for members and $60 for everyone else,” she says.

She adds, “Returns are free for H&M members and $4.99 for everyone else.”

And, according to H&M’s website, you can also make returns for free in-store. You can also get a 10% discount (in-store or online), when you sign up for the digital loyalty program.

Zara: Zara now have a shipping fee of $2.95, but adds that returns are free. Meanwhile, if you want to avoid the shipping fee altogether, you can also order the item to be shipped to a Zara store near you for free.

Reformation: Shipping is free to Canada. Returns are free too.

Simons: IT has a lot of good stuff on its website. Shipping is free for Simons members over $50 and for $75 for everyone else. And if you ship it back, returns will be $9.99. if you want to avoid that charge, you can also return in-store for free.

American clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch: They have free shipping to Canada over $75. If you want to return, they will send you a return label. They’ll just deduct $7 off the cost of your return.

She also recommended: Oak & Fort, Aritzia, COS, Arket.

In addition to Julia’s own advice, the comments section was filled with useful tips and honourable mentions.

“Reitmans online clearance is INSANE! I’ve shopped exclusively clearance for years and save literal hundreds,” one TikTok user stated.
