Retail Insider reported in September 2020 of Canadian athleisure brand Lululemon is expanding its flagship store in downtown Vancouver. The expansion would annex a space vacated by Australian footwear brand UGG. Lululemon will grow its 4,400-square-foot store by an additional 2,500 square feet at 970 Robson Street with the expansion. During the July 2020 walkabout, the Lululemon-branded construction signage for the annexed space was in place for a potential opening in the near future.

Lululemon opened the Vancouver flagship store, occupying the prominent corner of Robson and Burrard Streets, in 2014. Taking over the UGG space will give Lululemon more than 100 feet of linear frontage along Robson Street between Burrard Street and a laneway. Retailers across the street include Victoria’s Secret, Clearly, and the future TWG Tea Salon & Boutique in the former Tesla Motors location. Luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo occupies the same block at 918 Robson Street.

CBRE Vancouver’s retail team negotiated the lease deal under the direction of Mario Negris and Martin Moriarty. Lululemon is opening and expanding stores despite the pandemic. In places such as Richmond BC, Lululemon is relocating its store to a space once occupied by Victoria’s Secret, for example.

We will update this bulletin as the retail updates come in for this location.
