Vancouver, B.C. — Foot Locker has opened its first Canadian community power store in Vancouver, British Columbia. A second community-based power store will open in Toronto, Ontario, in early December.
The Vancouver and Toronto locations follow successful openings of power stores in Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, London, Compton, Calif., Liverpool and Hong Kong.
“We are so excited to bring our power store model to Canada over the next two months,” says Richard McLeod, vice president of marketing for Foot Locker, North America. “Although the shopping experience is different with current guidelines, we look forward to bringing locally-curated experiences to the Vancouver and Toronto sneaker communities.”
First up, the new 15,000-square-foot store in Vancouver — which opened on Nov. 20 — offers a three-story retail experience, including a second-floor activation space where events may be hosted with key brand partners and influencers for the local community (pending COVID-19 restrictions). The store will follow strict social distancing guidelines to ensure customers feel safe while shopping their favorite brands during these unprecedented times.
The Toronto-based community power store is expected to open on Dec. 5.
