‘Dank Mart’ Bodega to Open Off-Robson Replacing RYU flagship in Downtown Vancouver

Dank Mart, the self-proclaimed “dankest bodega in the world”, will be opening its second convenience store location just off Robson Street on Thurlow Street in the same city block as Drake’s October’s Very Own (OVO) boutique and Vancouver-based Aritzia on the corner of Thurlow and Robson. The first Vancouver location for Dank Mart opened at 6418 Main Street in May 2020 offering rare snacks and exotic drinks in-store and online. Its success allowed for its expansion to a new location near Robson Street.

Dank Mark takes over the vacated retail space from Vancouver-based RYU which opened on Thurlow Street off of Robson Street in the summer of 2016. It was noted in Retail Insider’s CEO interview in March 2021 that the athletic brand announced several store closures to coincide with its restructuring.
