Now Open: Indigo Returns to Robson Street with 29,000sqft Flagship Location

Indigo has returned to Robson Street, with the opening of their new, 29,000 square foot flagship store at 1033 Robson Street.

Offering consumers a place to unwind and unplug, Indigo Robson is centered around life-enriching pillars including reading, wellness, cooking, kids’ edutainment and events celebrating authors and artists from the community and beyond.  The two-level store is organized in a shop within a shop concept, including Books, Wellness, Joy of the Table, A Room of Her Own, Home Beautiful, IndigoKids and IndigoBaby.

Heather Reisman, a proud Canadian, opened the first Indigo location in 1997, bringing a lifelong passion for books to the retail environment with the goal of creating a cultural department store for booklovers. In 2001, Chapters and Indigo officially merged to form the largest book retailer in Canada. Since then, Indigo has grown to over 200 locations in Canada under the banners Indigo, Chapters, Indigospirit and Coles.

With books at the heart and soul of Indigo, the Vancouver flagship will have over 58,000 unique book titles. Customers can also access an unlimited selection online through in-store kiosks, including online exclusive items which offer free shipping of all items to store with no minimum spend, plus free returns. In addition, the Robson Street store also has a Starbucks café.

“We are thrilled to be back on Robson Street to share our new retail concept with our passionate customers. As a proudly Canadian company, we are committed to providing Vancouver’s book-loving community with a unique, life-enriching retail experience. We are so looking forward to welcoming everyone again.” – Heather Reisman, CEO and Chief Booklover, Indigo.
Indigo will also be supporting the local community through the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to putting books in the hands of Canadian children. Since inception, the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation has provided over $29 million to high-needs elementary schools across Canada, with $3.5 million to British Columbian schools.
