Bang & Olufsen to open new retail showroom in Toronto's Yorkville district PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   
TORONTO (04 January 2010) - High-end audio and video component manufacturer Bang & Olufsen will open a new retail showroom in the Yorkville shopping district here later this spring.

Located on the north-east corner of Avenue Road and Davenport Road, the 4,000 square foot showroom was designed by Toronto-based interior designer and architect Johnson Chou. It features two levels with a mezzanine and is outfitted with classic and contemporary furniture from Toronto-based contemporary furniture retailer Avenue Road.

The owners of Bang & Olufsen Yorkville, Igor and Jordan Korenzvit, believe the store goes beyond a typical retailer to a complete, true-to-life home integration showcase. It is also the first in Canada and one of the few in North America to display the Bang & Olufsen 103-inch BeoVision 4 television.

The BeoVision 4-103 is the only television to include a motorized stand that can lift its mammoth screen and tilt and turn it to optimal viewing position at the touch of a remote control.

Between them, Igor and Jordan Korenzvit have 40 years of combined experience working with luxury brands including Bang & Olufsen and lead a group of specialists in custom installation and home automation systems.

"We're very excited about our innovative new showroom that is the largest in North America," says Jordan Korenzvit. "By tripling in size from our former showroom on Bloor Street we will be able to give our clients a higher level of service with a full display of B&O's extensive line of products; integration with lighting, roller shades, HVAC, security and other home electronics; an on-site service technician; and a private customer parking lot."

"Bang & Olufsen has a long history of providing cutting-edge, high quality audio and video products that deliver the ultimate customer experience," states Zean Nielsen, president of Bang & Olufsen America.

"We are extremely happy for our loyal partners on their gorgeous new store which will allow them to continue providing the ultimate in Bang & Olufsen service and custom installation expertise to the Toronto area," he continued.

A grand opening event will be held in early spring 2010 at the new store location.
