J. Crew will soon open its second Downtown Vancouver store at Pacific Centre. The store will be in a reconfigured space formerly occupied by an American Eagle Outfitters store an an Ann-Louise Jewellers store, the later which moved to a corner-space adjacent to the new J. Crew.
J. Crew has been on a Canada-wide expansion and we find it interesting that, with so few Canadian stores, they would locate two so close to each other. J. Crew opened its first Vancouver location in April 2012 at 1088 Robson Street, a relatively short walk from its new Pacific Centre store.
This will be J. Crew's eighth Canadian store. Besides the Vancouver Robson Street shop, the six other J. Crews are in metro Toronto (four stores) and Edmonton (two stores).
Thank you, readers, who noticed we had made an error in a previous post based on incorrectly marked Cadillac Fairview lease plans. We won't name names, but you know who you are and we thank you again for being diligent insiders!
Canada will see more J. Crew. We'll announce more Canadian J. Crew locations when they are confirmed.
