VANCOUVER, April 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Deecorp Properties Ltd. is pleased to announce Aritzia's up-and-coming flagship expansion on Robson Street in 2016. The additional 6,500 sq. ft. flagship store will sit along the Wilfred-only, existing Aritzia and Base locations at the prime intersection of Robson & Thurlow.
"We feel that Aritzia's strong brand and market presence brings a revitalized energy to this area." says Jay Lirag, Deecorp's Vice President of Development and Leasing. "The expansion of Aritzia shows the confidence in the 1100 block of Robson Street, arguably one of the busiest retail centres in Vancouver."
The interest and demand for Robson Street remains positive with the recent influx of some high profile tenants, such as Sephora, L'Occitane and Lululemon, all of which have opened up their flagship stores on Robson Street in 2014. Roots is currently in the process of renovating and expanding its flagship and a third redevelopment on the 1000 block will attract another high quality tenant in the next couple of years.

After all, "excellent customer service never goes out of style," says CEO Brian Hill.
