CORRECTION: On April 2nd we reported Steve Madden was replacing Levi’s on Vancouver’s Robson Street. That was incorrect – Montreal-based Browns Shoes confirms the space will be for a new Browns store. 

Browns Shoes is opening a new Vancouver location, replacing the Levi’s store on Robson Street. 

Browns’ sister store ‘B2’ already has a store at 1112 Robson Street. 

For those unfamiliar, Browns Shoes is a Montreal-based footwear retailer selling both private-label and designer shoe brands. It also carries some handbags, accessories and jackets/outerwear. B2 is considered to be its slightly ‘younger’ and ‘hipper’ store/brand. 

Browns already has Vancouver stores at Pacific Centre, Oakridge Shopping Centre and at Metropolis at Metrotown. This will be the second Browns store in Downtown Vancouver, and the third company store including its Robson Street B2.
