When Chapters Indigo closed its massive three-storey store on Robson & Howe Street, in favour of its small format Indigospirit, they promised its customers that they would eventually open a larger store again in downtown Vancouver. Well, that time is coming soon – Indigo has just announced it will be opening a new 29,000 square foot flagship location on Robson Street, to open in the Fall 2018.
Taking over the former Forever 21 retail space at 1033 Robson Street, the new two-level space will reflect Indigo’s full new concept. The new store will have a warm and inviting aesthetic inspired by the city. Customers will explore the best book selection, exclusive Indigo designed lifestyle products, and an outstanding IndigoKids department. The store will also have a full café and community space for special events.
“Indigo, which also operates the Chapters brand, has had a long and valued relationship with booklovers in downtown Vancouver. When we made the decision to leave our well-loved Robson street Chapters store, we promised our customers that as soon as we could, we would be back. We are so very excited to reconnect with this community who are among the best and most passionate readers in the country.” – Heather Reisman, CEO and Chief Booklover, Indigo.
