Yves Rocher France is an international privately-held beauty product company with origins rooted in Bretagne, France.  Yves Rocher introduced the namesake company using his own organic plants and flowers as ingredients for his skincare products. Over 50 years after its founding, the chain still grows and harvests its own organically grown plants and manufactures and distributes them to almost 4000 retail outlets around the globe.  About 60 stores are in Canada, in Quebec, New Brunswick and Ontario. The chain is now looking to grow its presence in Canada and has retained Manon Parisien at Aurora Realty Consultants to handle the site selection.  The focus for 2018 and 2019 is on the Ontario market.  Currently there are about ten Yves Rocher stores in Ontario. The chain is seeking sites on high streets and lifestyle centres as well as in-line and kiosk locations in the larger malls.  The size required is in a 350 to 550 square foot range.
