Gucci Opens Pop-Up and Omega Renovates at Hotel Vancouver [Photo Update]

Retail Insider reported in July 2021 that Italian luxury brand Gucci will renovate and expand its standalone downtown Vancouver store at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver by annexing an adjacent space occupied by an Omega luxury watch boutique. Construction signage has been erected and the expansion project is well underway.

The former, smaller Gucci location within the hotel had construction hoarding erected without signage promoting its expansion. The following is a comparison between June 2021 while the boutique was open and September 2021 when the expansion began:

The new Omega location across the hallway had ‘coming soon’ signage installed to announce its new location. The following is a comparison between June 2021 and September 2021 when the expansion began:

Retail Insider also reported in July 2021 of signage going up at the temporary Gucci location at 710 Thurlow Street in a retail space vacated several months ago by German women’s luxury fashion brand Escada. The following are photos of the temporary location in full operation:
