We’ve hinted for a while now that Victoria’s Secret will be opening up in Vancouver. New York’s Limited Brands, the company that owns Victoria’s Secret, has had it’s eye on the Vancouver market for quite some time now. Now sources are telling Business in Vancouver that HMV’s former 30,000-square-foot shop at Robson and Burrard could soon house both Victoria’s Secret and Victoria Secret Pink.
Victoria’s Secret would be at ground level and Victoria’s Secret Pink on the lower floor.
For the longest time Victoria’s Secret was trying to get into Pacific Centre. It was all supposed to be part of their expansion plans on Howe and Georgia. However, with Sears Closing and close to 600,000 square feet of space being made available, those expansion plans seemed to be postponed. It’s possible that they may be moving into both Pacific Centre and Robson, however, that is a very unlikely scenario. Chances are if they can get the deal for the Robson and Burrard location they would rather go for that.
