Walking past the store front on a daily basis, I see the contractors working feverishly to get this done in time. From what one of them told me they’d like to open it before Christmas. The tower itself is probably going to open sometime early next year.
The interior design of the store is still somewhat up to the imagination, however it will reflect the new store design concept developed by Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s creative director. On the other hand, the exterior is taking shape with the signature plaid Burberry has become world famous for plastered on the walls.
Burberry itself is going through an image makeover from the shame it suffered in the 90’s. For Vancouver to land another luxury fashion brand speaks volumes to the continued interest in our fair city. Many more luxury fashion houses have inquired to have store fronts, however they are all looking for prominent locations, the majority of which are already occupied.
