Robson Street is home to an eclectic mix of stores, and whether you need new shoes, a souvenir from Vancouver, luggage, nutrition supplements, clothing or anything in between, you're bound to find it on Robson Street. A new addition is coming and it's going to fill one of the largest single store spaces on the street. Ladies across the Lower Mainland are in for a treat because Victoria's Secret is on its way.

What once housed thousands of CDs and DVDs in the now-closed HMV, will now be home to thousands of lingerie pieces, make-up and other Victoria's Secret products women love so much. Currently, those wanting to shop from Victoria's Secret must go down to the United States, order online or head to Vancouver International Airport and visit the small shop they have inside the terminal.
In May of 2013, the retail giant plans to open its doors and allow shoppers to peruse through the 35,000-square-feet of shopping bliss. Spread over two floors on the corner of Robson and Burrard, this will be the largest Victoria's Secret in Canada. The lease has been signed for the next ten years, with hopes of continued business beyond that. A second location will also open in Burnaby's Metrotown but will not be to the same scale as the downtown location.
Gentlemen, you now know where you will be shopping for your lady come May 2013.
