Work boots maker Timberland is to expand its distribution to Canada with the launch of its Timberland PRO range in Mark's Work Wearhouse stores beginning this month.

The move to Canada is an extension of Timberland PRO's efforts to make high-quality work footwear as widely available as possible, while its partnership with Mark's Work Wearhouse is part of its commitment to expanding strategic relationships with key retailers globally.

Timberland will support the expansion into Canada with significant marketing efforts that include in-store advertising, a gift-with-purchase initiative and an extensive outdoor billboard campaign.

Timberland PRO work boots are designed to stand up to extreme worksite demands and provide protection against the most common hazards.

Each of the styles available in Canada have earned the approval of the Canadian Standards Association. The boots will be carried in Mark's Work Wearhouse locations throughout Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Edmonton.
