New lingerie boutique opens in Thornhill
Sisters Lorraine and Mya Hoang are proud to introduce Crush Lingerie to the heart of Thornhill. Offering customers customized bra fittings, as well as a selection of European and American boutique-quality sleepwear and lingerie, is what sets the sisters apart from their department store competitors. And the store isn’t just for the women — the store also sells a selection of underwear and sleepwear for male clients. The decision to open the new venture stems from the sisters’ love of lingerie, as well as a desire to fill a perceived void in the market for shoppers north of Steeles Avenue. “We found that there wasn’t the lingerie spot to go to for women,” says Lorraine. Drop in at the new store, 7787 Yonge St., Unit 4, or call 905-882-1188 for details.
