Canada’s first Pomellato jewelry store will open in September 2014 at Vancouver’s Pacific Centre. It will also be the fifth free-standing North American location for the brand. The 800 square foot boutique will be operated by Vancouver’s Vestis Fashion Group, which operates Max Mara and Bluebird stores in the Vancouver area.
Pomellato will be located in a space adjacent to the mall entrance of Vancouver’s Four Seasons Hotel. It will replace the Pacific Pen Shop as well as a portion of the retail space currently occupied by watch retailer La Swiss. We have provided part of a Pacific Centre lease plan, above, for reference.
For those unfamiliar, Pomellato is an upscale Italian jewelry company famous for using coloured stones. It was founded in 1967 in Milan, and it is now owned by French designer conglomerate Kering. It has four free-standing American stores, all in prestigious shopping areas: Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Madison Avenue in New York City, the Bal Harbour Shops near Miami, and East Oak Street in Chicago.
