According to Retail Insider, Shoppers Drug Mart will open a 4,100 square foot Beauty Boutique store next to Victoria’s Secret in the old Off The Wall space on Burrard Street.
The question is, is another cosmetic retailer necessary in the downtown core? That space may have been better off as location for a high end retailer, that would fit he current store mix in the area.
The new Shoppers Beauty Boutique will compete with a new two level, Sephora store located next to Forever 21 on Robson Street. That is set to open in late 2014.
