OTTAWA — In light of recent business achievements and its expanding online presence, THANN Canada has chosen to close the door of its flagship retail store in Ottawa, Canada to shift its focus to online operations. Bolstered by its unprecedented boost in online sales and its ever-growing following in social media, THANN Canada is well positioned to dominate the online beauty and skincare industry. 

Mr. Fadi Ghaby, president and owner of THANN Canada and winner of the prestigious OttawaBusiness Journal and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce 2012's Forty Under 40 awards, a program that recognizes Ottawa residents who are leaders both in business and in their community, provided the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate current operations and make business decisions that will ultimately optimize sales. According to Ghaby, “I recognized the need to streamline operations, take advantage of huge and exciting online opportunities, create new sales channels, increase client interaction and satisfaction and use e-commerce to maximize brand awareness globally.” 

This new shift in operations supports THANN’s ongoing efforts to protect the environment and reduce its carbon footprint, while continuing to provide its customers with only the highest quality products and services in a faster and more cost-effective way, such as faster shipping and free local delivery. 

THANN Canada is also pleased to announce an expansion of its partnerships into the luxury, retail and hospitality industries, in addition to its existing close partnerships with ARC The.Hotel, Lord ElginHotel, Quality Hotel and Otto’s BMW. “Fadi has always shown his strong commitment to innovation and leadership, a sharp business leader who is always ahead of the game,” says Colin Morrison, General Manager, ARC The.Hotel. “He’s demonstrated his proficiency in both high tech and retail industries and I’m sure he will be just as successful, if not more so, online.”

Amy Karlin, CEO of Splendid Events, fully agrees. “I've always been blown away by Fadi’s constant hunger for improvement and willingness to partner with other entrepreneurs. By taking this step in a new direction, Fadi is showing once again that he is a true leader in business, identifying THANN's strengths and its potential for even greater growth. ” 

Backed with a fully integrated online infrastructure and supported by diverse partnerships locally and internationally, THANN Canada is excited to serve its customers in a bigger and better way.

  1. Umm, apparently not so much. I see has been shut down. So much for visionary leadership to dominate the global skin care business online.
    Sorry to hear it. Thann is (was?) a great brand.
