Retail Insider has noted Italian luxury brand Gucci is packing up its 710 Thurlow Street location in downtown Vancouver. The location in Vancouver’s prestigious “Alberni Luxury Zone” was reported in September 2021 as being a temporary location while renovations were underway at its new space at Hotel Vancouver.

The overall expansion project has spanned approximately one year as construction signage was first noted in July 2021 at the temporary pop-up Gucci location which filled a retail space vacated by German women’s luxury fashion brand Escada.

Within the July 2021 report, Retail Insider also elaborated on the luxury brand expanding by annexing an adjacent space occupied by an Omega luxury watch boutique. The watch brand temporarily relocated to the basement in the hotel until reopening in December 2021 in its new space across the hallway from the new Gucci retail space on the main floor.

The former 3,900 square foot Gucci store, which opened in the Hotel Vancouver in 2006, annexed 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 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. The store will also add men’s ready-to-wear for the first time.

We will continue to monitor for details pertaining to the grand opening of Gucci’s newly expanded Hotel Vancouver boutique.
