TORONTO While many retailers are trying to weave digital elements into their stores to incorporate the endless aisle advantages of online shopping, Roots is sticking to its traditions of cabin chic.But that doesn mean the the latest store concept for the veteran Canadian apparel and footwear chain opening this week at Toronto Yorkdale Shopping Centre, shies away from the sorts of modern bells and whistles required to draw Roots tech savvy target audience into its space.The airy, 5,000 square foot boutique has requisite outdoorsy design touches such as exposed wooden ceiling beams, but also features a new shop, DJ stations for special events, a lounging area for customers who shop in groups or need to place an online order, and a different outdoor theme in every change room in order to make the spaces eminently said Alex Jones, Roots vice president of real estate, during a tour of the new store on Wednesday.The store customization lab, the first of its kind at Roots, allows customers to sift through leather and textile samples and use a digital design interface to put their own style spin on a classic jacket or to monogram a leather bag.customization has existed for quite some time, and we have been watching that, said chief executive Jim Gabel, who headed up the performance group of Wolverine World Wide, managing the athletic and outdoor shoe brands Saucony and Merrell, before he took up the helm at Roots last year.
