Alberni Developing Into Go-To Retail Spot
Gentlemen: If you were toiling away planning a fancy YouTube-worthy marriage proposal, your schedule just got pushed up. De Beers has just moved into Vancouver's luxe chic go-to spot, Alberni Street; it's the company's first bricks and mortar store in Canada. De Beers has just 47 locations worldwide. De Beers doesn't do e-commerce—so a store that's in the same area as luxe stops Shangri-La, a Trump hotel and condo, luxury retail spots like Tiffany and Co, is meant to draw shoppers to the flagship location. De Beers also has locations on Old Bond Street in London, The Landmark in Hong Kong, and Fifth Avenue in New York.
