Home Retail


Retail news from across Metro Vancouver, including new store openings and retail space for lease. Metro Vancouver's retail market is constantly evolving, with international players like MUJI, Uniqlo and Nordstrom entering the market. Alberni Street continues its transformation into Vancouver's version of Rodeo Drive, and is home to luxury brands including Hermes, Van Cleef & Arpels, Prada, Versace and Moncler. Gastown has carved a retail niche in recent years, and is home to boutique retail shops like Filson, COS and Frank & Oak. In Kitsilano, you will find retailers like Lululemon, Whole Foods and Blundstone. New retail space is being created across the Lower Mainland through redevelopment, at the Amazing Brentwood which has partnered with the conglomerate behind Louis Vuitton, and at Oakridge where QuadReal and Westbank will transform the shopping centre into a cutting-edge retail concept.
