Upscale Australian skin care brand Aesop has opened its newest Canadian store location at Park Royal in West Vancouver. The retailer took over the former Montreal-based DAVIDsTEA location in “The Village” section of the shopping centre. The location is next to the former storefront for Vancouver-based fashion brand Kit and Ace and across the street from the former location of French retailer Salomon as well.

It’s the fourth Aesop location in the Vancouver area and the first outside of the city proper. The other store locations include Aesop Kitsilano (on West 4th Avenue), Aesop Gastown (on Water Street) and Aesop Main Street in Vancouver.

Aesop entered the Canadian market in the summer of 2015 with its first location in Vancouver. The company subsequently expanded into the Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Calgary markets by opening standalone stores.

The first Vancouver store opened at 19 Water Street in the city’s Gastown area in 2015 in a 615 square foot space. Other locations that followed it include at 3583 Main Street in an up-and-coming area of the city as well as at 2072 W. 4th Avenue in Kitsilano. Sources say two more Vancouver lease deals are currently being negotiated.

Mario Negris and Martin Moriarty of Marcus & Millichap negotiated the lease on behalf of the retailer.
