For many Vancouver shoppers their dreams may soon come true as rumour has it that Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo is coming to town. According to Retail Insider, Uniqlo Vancouver is a reality as they will be subleasing the space directly under the recently opened Topshop/Topman.
We’ll know soon enough as The Bay has been courting an international retailer. Another potential tenant name being tossed around is Bloomingdale’s.
The Uniqlo name makes sense as they are in heavy expansion mode and have expressed interest in the past of tapping into the Vancouver market. If The Bay spot does not happen, another possible spot may be the recently opened up corner at Alberni and Thurlow, where a 7/11 and other tenants used to be.
We’ll have more on this as it develops.
