Arc’teryx to Open First Lifestyle Concept Store

Metrotown Mall location will feature the largest selection of everyday lifestyle apparel

NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, December 9, 2019 – Arc’teryx Equipment, the global design company specializing in technical high-performance apparel, will unveil its first lifestyle concept store in Burnaby, BC, just in time for the holidays. The store, located in Metrotown Mall, will bring the largest selection of the company’s lifestyle line in addition to select exclusive items.

“Exceptional retail experiences are a priority for Arc’teryx. With our new lifestyle concept store, we are welcoming our customers into a beautifully designed space where they can touch, feel and try our products, and really experience the uniqueness of our brand,” says Megan Cheesbrough, VP of Retail, Arc’teryx. “It’s been an incredible six years since opening our first retail brand store in our home province of British Columbia, and our hope with this store and our lifestyle collection is to make Arc’teryx apparel accessible to everyone, everyday.“

Located in one of the highest traffic malls in all of Canada, the new fashion and lifestyle store offerings are designed according to the brand’s signature minimalist concept and crafted from performance fabrics. Cut from the same cloth as the brand’s technical outdoor apparel, these products are designed for use in the urban environment, providing comfort and protection to enjoy being outside longer.

“The new retail store is designed to entice, welcome and immerse customers into the Arc’teryx experience where they can explore our products and, uniquely in this case, visualize how these lifestyle pieces can be incorporated into their everyday wardrobe,” says Stephanie Jamieson, Global Retail Marketing Manager, Arc’teryx. “Our team has created a fresh and inviting space for a modern shopping experience, and we’re excited to be sharing this with our community.”

The grand opening celebrations start Saturday, December 14th with several special events. The first 50 customers through the doors at 10:00 a.m. will receive Arc’teryx gift bags. Throughout opening weekend, there will be opportunities to win products in store, a live musical performance from a local artist, a nutrition lab for wellness advice and tips, and a station dedicated to customizing your Arc’teryx gear.
