The Robson Street you see today will be vastly different in the next year or so as changes are coming. One of those changes is the closure of Tommy Hilfiger. It will be replaced by J.Crew. This was reported by an anonymous source to Business in Vancouver. The block between Burrard and Thurlow will be quite busy with many new retailers such as Forever 21 and a rumoured Apple Store moving in.
However, there are still some vacancies left on Robson Street’s main shopping drag between Burrard and Bute. The most notable one being the large Esprit store that is still not leased.
Here is the excerpt from Business in Vancouver:
Another source, who similarly did not want to be identified, said that J. Crew Group Inc. (NYSE:JCG) will soon replace the Tommy Hilfiger store across the street from the future Apple store.
We’ll have to wait to see what happens. If this is true, this will be the second J. Crew store opening up soon in Vancouver. The first one is a confirmed Pacific Centre location.
