Recently, new stores have been popping up on Robson Street, in the Pacific Centre, and along South Granville, giving Vancouverites the opportunity to purchase stylish items from their favorite stores they used to only be able to get in the US.
Express has long been a favorite store among guys and gals that like on-trend clothing at reasonable prices, and soon Vancouver shoppers will be able to get their hands on the latest frocks from Express. Taking over the old Jacobs location, this Express will have 8,200-square-feet to play around with and will be the first location in British Columbia.
Another well known American chain has just opened up along Robson Street and has been causing quite the frenzy. J. Crew has opened its doors to eager fashionistas who are looking for classic and chic pieces, with a bit of a twist. This new location can be found at 1088 Robson Street.

Back in November, Victoria's Secret opened up their first British Columbia location in Vancouver's YVR Airport. The boutique sized VS is a mere 795-square-feet, but packs around 5,000 pairs of underwear in the "panty bar". With this first location gaining popularity among locals and visitors traveling through YVR, word on the street is that a large location could be opening in Vancouver's downtown core. No official statement has been made as of yet, but where's there's smoke, there's usually something hot–in this case, large billboards of Victoria's Secret models could be imminent.
