Major Canadian Retailer Making Big Expansions
Though many stores haven’t been surviving and lots of large retailers have been facing issues of all kinds, there are in fact some stores continuing to grow.
Aritzia, the popular Vancouver-started brand will be expanding their flagship store. They will be taking over the former BCBG store, as well as the former entrance to Holt Renfrew. This is pretty prime retail space, so clearly this means they’re doing more than just “pretty well.” When it opens in spring 2019, it’ll be one of the company’s largest stores.
The entire interior will even get a revamp to match Aritzia’s updated aesthetic which has been seen in some of the newer stores. This includes brightly lit stores and an open concept. The store will “also feature marble merchandising tables and cash desk, wire-wheeled oak tables and architectural wall panels, custom built-in millwork, custom graphic wall murals, steel and glass interior partitions, custom raked stucco walls, and polished concrete and herringbone marble floors,” according to Aritzia. It will also have a lounge area being described as “feminine and spacious” and will have lots of plants.
