Simons Expanding To West Vancouver
Quebec City-based fashion retailer Simons will be opening a store at Park Royal in West Vancouver this fall, part of a nationwide growth strategy that will see the 175-year-old company expand to six new locales over the next two years. CEO Peter Simons tells Bisnow that the 100k SF, two-floor store will boast a 40-foot suspended mobile designed by Douglas Coupland, and a facade (rendered above) inspired by Squamish weaving. “We’re hoping all of this adds to a better quality urban environment,” Peter says. Simons first expanded outside Quebec in 2012, launching a store at West Edmonton Mall. Other new locations will open at Calgary’s The CORE and Edmonton’s Londonderry Mall.
