The development was made possible by annexing an adjacent space occupied by an Omega luxury watch boutique for which construction signage went up in September 2021.
Construction signage is now up on the store which will be substantially larger when it reopens in 2022.
The current 3,900 square foot Gucci store, which opened in the Hotel Vancouver in 2006, is annexing the 2,300 square foot Omega store next to it to create a flagship-sized 6,200 square foot location to house Gucci’s entire collection of ready-to-wear for women and men as well as bags, accessories, footwear, jewellery and other categories.
The current Gucci store does not carry the men’s ready-to-wear line which is available nearby at Vancouver’s Holt Renfrew store.
The expanded Hotel Vancouver store will feature Gucci’s most updated store concept that was recently rolled out with new Gucci stores at West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton and a renovated Bloor Street flagship store in Toronto. Interiors will be plush with velvet, marble and wood.
