Loblaw executives are rolling the dice despite the poor track record of Canadian retailers – including the grocer – in the U.S. Loblaw is among a string of domestic merchants forced to retreat from the U.S. market, unable to find a niche and succeed in the ultra-competitive landscape.

giant Loblaw Cos. Ltd. a destination for cheap-chic fashion.

Now Loblaw executives are betting that Mr. Mimran can do for its ailing
non-food businesses what he did in its fashion aisles. He now has been

sections, including home furnishings, electronics, sporting goods,
