Jersey City Canada

Jersey City has been in the licensed retail business for 22 years. The concept was originally rolled out as a franchise of the Forzani Group and remained as such until 1999. At that time two franchisee groups merged to form a new company, Jersey City Canada Inc that in turn bought the name and trademarks from Forzani. Under the new leadership and a strong middle management team, the company has moved from a franchised store base to a successful corporate chain.

Since 1999 the company has opened 20 new Jersey City stores and currently operates over 25 stores located across 5 Canadian Provinces. Over the past 10 years the company has created a new store concept, a new marketing plan, a new operations plan, a new vendor plan and a new finance plan. Today Jersey City is Canada's largest independant Licensed Retailer for authentic jerseys and sports apparel, selling products from the NHL, NFL, CFL, Team Canada, NBA and many more. Jersey City is also the largest independent licensed customer to suppliers such as Reebok, CCM, Nike and New Era.

Throughout the year we are involved in supporting many charities and local fundraising events. Every year, Jersey City holds a company golf tournament in Calgary with proceeds going towards the "Make-A-Wish" foundation.
