Luxurious Zurich, Switzerland-based legwear and knitwear retailer Fogal has closed its Vancouver store. Located at 1012 Alberni Street (off Burrard Street), the boutique was one of only three North American locations. 

Fogal’s other two North American stores will continue to operate, according to a representative at Fogal. Fogal has a store at 131 Bloor Street West in Toronto, as well as a location in New York City on Madison Avenue. 

Fogal operates 28 boutiques internationally, including nine locations in Switzerland and seven in Japan. It also retails at selected upscale department stores worldwide.

Fogal’s Vancouver store was located in the upscale 755 Burrard Street retail complex, between footwear retailer Mephisto and jewellery retailer Pandora. 755 Burrard’s corner tenant is luxury French retailer Hermes, and the complex also houses upscale retailers Coach, Wolford and L’Occitane. This fall, L’Occitaine will vacate 755 Burrard to relocate to a substantially larger space on Robson Street. Stationary/gift retailer Papyrus will subsequently replace L’Occitaine’s 1,000 square foot premises.
