The Vancouver-based retailer, founded in 1984, said half of its sales in the quarter came from south of the border. In October at its first investors day, Wong said the company will place more focus on increasing its brick-and-mortar footprint in the U.S. and expanding e-commerce offerings as part of a five-year growth strategy.

Aritzia also delivered guidance on its fourth quarter results, saying it is on track to generate net revenue in the range of $580 million to $600 million.
