A temporary Aesop at located on West 4th Avenue is already operating and will close for commencement of construction once permits are granted. According to CBRE’s Martin Moriarty, the store will measure 1,950 square feet and will serve as the primary showroom and distribution hub for Aesop’s Vancouver operations.

Aesop opened two Canadian locations this past July 2015 including their Gastown store, a 615 square foot location at 19 Water Street. The skincare company also boasts stores in  Toronto as well as two locations in Montreal.

Aesop was founded in 1987 in Melbourne by hairdresser Dennis Paphitis. Product packaging is simple, and its quality is considered to be exceptional. It sources plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and uses only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy. It operates free-standing ‘signature stores’ as well as wholesale operations in a variety of retailers, high-end department stores such as Holt Renfrew and Barneys New York. Canadian stockists include multiple gravitypope locations, as well as a handful of smaller independents.
