Triple Flip Opens First Store in Ontario

Private-label Retailer Serves Growing Niche Preteen Market

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2009) - Girls in Southern Ontario can finally shop at the increasingly popular private label clothier, Triple Flip, a year after local athletes created an online video, "Ontario Flips for Triple Flip", asking the store to locate eastward. Triple Flip's successful retail concept caters exclusively to girls' active lifestyles with high-quality clothing that is stylish, comfortable and age-appropriate.

"A major focus of our business is about empowering our girl customers to express themselves, and Ontario girls did a great job at getting their point across that they wanted us to open here," said Linda Maslechko, president and co-founder, Triple Flip. "A year later, here we are, thrilled to celebrate our grand opening this weekend in Oakville."

Triple Flip's unique approach is more about customer empowerment than standard customer service. Twice a year, the store selects 24 randomly drawn girls to model Triple Flip in professional photo shoots that see portraits later displayed in the store and online. LG Toronto Fashion Week invited Triple Flip to host its first Ontario photo shoot last month on the runway, making Triple Flip the only kidswear line represented this season.

Providing active wear made from the highest technical performance fabrics that easily transition from school to sports, Triple Flip encourages girls to lead healthy active lifestyles.
