J.Crew debuted in 1983 with the mailing of its first catalog. Six years later, we opened a flagship store at New York's South Street Seaport. Today, the business includes retail and outlet stores nationwide and an ever-growing online and catalog business.
J.Crew went global in August 2011 with the opening of our first Canadian store, located at Yorkdale Center in Toronto, which was followed quickly by store openings in both Vancouver and Edmonton. We rolled out our e-commerce site to over 100 countries in early 2012 and are also currently scouting overseas for brick-and-mortar locations.
