The corner of Robson and Burrard will be welcoming a new tenant as Bebe is closing its doors for good in February.
This comes on the heels of other closures across the street as the Blenz Coffee had to shut its doors because the landlord wanted to bring in a high-traffic clothing retailer. A flagship Lululemon will take over the Blenz Coffee, New Balance (which opened a new Robson Street location, two blocks west), the pop-up shop Buzz Clothing, and the recently opened HMV on Robson.
As for the Bebe location, it’s unknown who will be vying for that valuable spot. Perhaps this could be the home of the long-rumoured Apple flagship location? It’s unknown whether the adjacent Le Chateau fronting Burrard Street will also close.
The Bebe space consists of 4,000 square feet on the ground floor and a 1,000-square-foot mezzanine.
