Located off Robson Street,this 10,000 square foot shopping magnet is a surefire visit for any shopaholic. One might assume the attraction is the wide range of men’s and women’s apparel, (which actually only makes up only 50 per cent of the store and falls into every category from political to vintage and chic to one-of-a-kind), but it’s so much more! Each floor – and there are three of them – offer everything from accessories, multimedia (turntables, CDs), and magazines, to house wares (futons, couches, bedspreads, table furnishings). From your mother to your neighbour, this store truly has something for everyone.
Go Bright or Go Home
You can’t miss it. The splash of colour inside the shopping Mecca is the first thing to catch your eye as you stroll down Granville Street in search of your next stop. Bright is the theme – the walls, ceilings, and displayed merchandise all show off the vibrant personality of this internationally loved store. Well known for its eclectic window showcases and display-heavy interior, the store is like no other in its arrangement. Wrought iron pieces, chandeliers, candles and lanterns are just a few of the many unique adornments that make the store stand alone in its personal style.
An Artsy Lean
For Urban Outfitters, art is the name of the game. From the funky pumping music to the art displays, the theme is what’s hip on the street. Staff say the inspirations come from what’s hip on the street in a global sense – London, Japan, Paris and New York. The merchandise is influenced by all of the trend-setting markets. To add to the mix, local artists can use Urban Outfitters as a promo ground to show off their local talents. From great painters to hip local DJ’s – the window displays won’t be the only thing constantly changing at this must-visit shopping spot.
