Hillberg & Berk is continuing to expand its west-coast roster with its first post-pandemic store-opening in Alberta.
The Saskatchewan-based female-owned jewellery company has expanded into its tenth retail storefront, located in Calgary’s Southcentre Mall. The Oxford-managed property was a location of choice — previously Hillberg & Berk had a kiosk in the mall known as a ‘sparkle bar’.
It’s important to note that the location is unique in that it’s the first store build that features the company’s new brand and store design. These projects were in process during the pandemic, with H&B being able to implement it for a post-pandemic roll-out.
Jeri Brodie of Aurora Realty Consultants negotiated the deal and represents Hillberg & Berk in terms of real estate needs in Canada.
The stores act as a community hub for clients, bringing together the personality and design of a recognizable brand with an added element of empowerment and expression.
We’ll be working with H&B Founder Rachel Mielke and her team on a number of announcements, including multiple new West Coast stores that will be coming in 2021 and 2022.
This is in addition to having Rachel as a guest on a future The Weekly Podcast, which will see Craig sit down with the H&B founder and talk about her story.
