Share post:

Iconic Italian luxury brand Giorgio Armani will open its second Canadian outlet location this spring at Vancouver’s new McArthurGlen Designer Outlets. Armani is hiring for multiple positions at the new store. 

Armani’s first Canadian outlet opened in the summer of 2014 at Toronto Premium Outlets

The 5,350 square foot outlet will carry product from all Armani lines for men and women, except for the couture Armani Privé line. 

Opening in the spring of 2015, North America’s first McArtherGlen Designer Outlets will be located at Templeton Skytrain Station next to Vancouver International Airport. The mall’s first phase will span 240,000 square feet with 80 retailers, many of them being luxury brands. McArthurGlen representatives say they’ll provide us a list of retailers closer to the mall’s opening date and when they do, we’ll reveal them in a separate article. Eventually, the mall will span 400,000 square feet with about 150 stores, with an unknown completion date. 

Thank you to Urban Toronto‘s ACT7 for notifying us of this new store opening.
