Ladies! It’s definitely no longer just a rumour, the folks at Metropolis at Metrotown have confirmed that construction has begun for Metro Vancouver’s second Victoria’s Secret location.
As indicated in the mall hoarding photo above, construction is now well underway in a very large retail space located close to Target (Metrotown’s former Zellers) and just across from Forever 21. Victoria’s Secret at Metrotown is expected to open this fall 2013. A sub-brand of Victoria’s Secret called PINK opened at Metrotown last October and will remain open to complement the new main store.
In addition to this fall’s new Metrotown location, Canada’s largest and North America’s second biggest Victoria’s Secret will also be opening this summer at the intersection of Burrard and Robson Streets within the former HMV store space. That’s 35,000 square feet of lingerie!
Comparatively, the region’s largest H&M at Pacific Centre and the recently opened TOPSHOP/TOPMAN inside downtown Vancouver’s Hudson’s Bay department store are both 33,000 square feet in size.
