Update 2: The Topshop will be opening up it’s capsule on September 15th. The full boutique will open shortly after the capsule launches.
Update: The Bay has secured the rights to Topshop and Topman for Canada. The first of the boutiques will open in Toronto. Look for Vancouver to be the second location to most likely have both Topshop and Topman.
Topshop the British chain of clothing stores with operations in over 20 countries may finally be coming to Vancouver. However, those hoping for a standalone boutique are probably out of luck. Word on the street, and by street I mean my friends in the retail industry, is that Topshop will open in The Bay downtown. The earliest this is rumoured to open is late fall 2011. However, a spring 2012 opening is a more likely scenario.
Topshop’s sales primarily come from women’s clothing and fashion accessories.
I’ll have more on this as it develops. For the time being, save your money.
