Hermes opening new 2-storey flagship store in downtown Vancouver
The southwest corner of Burrard Street and West Georgia Street in downtown Vancouver will effectively become an expansion of the emerging Alberni Street luxury retail district when a new upscale retailer moves into the space.
Hermes is set to open a two-storey flagship store at the corner, according to a recent report by Retail Insider.
This new store location will take over ground-level retail space previously occupied by Bell, which recently vacated its corner space and moved into a unit one block away that was briefly a space for SHOES.com.
In addition to occupying the ground-level space, Hermes is also expected to take up at least a portion of the second level space currently occupied by Suki’s Salon & Spa.
The report added that the new Hermes Vancouver flagship store’s size will be similar to the recently opened 12,000-square-foot Toronto flagship store.
The French high fashion luxury goods manufacturer is currently located just one block south at 755 Burrard Street – the corner of Burrard Street and Alberni Street. This space will become the new home of Cartier, which will move from its existing space at 456 Howe Street.
