The U.S. Brands We Most Want To See In Canada


It's the Fourth of July, the day Americans celebrate as their own.

We at HuffPost Canada have had America on our minds a lot lately, particularly the U.S. invasion of Canadian retail. We've lamented all the Canadian brands that have disappeared over the past few decades, run down some of the exciting new U.S. brands headed for Canada, and even celebrated those things you can only buy here.

Now, it's time for a Fourth of July wish list -- these are the U.S. brands we most want to see come to Canada. Some are upscale, some are trashy, some are healthy, some are decidedly not. But they're all brands that could liven up Canada's sometimes unexciting retail scene.

Did we miss any U.S. brands you'd like to see come to Canada? Let us know in the comments below.
