Lost in the announcement of 46 retailers at the highly anticipated McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport is the distinct lack of local business. B.C.’s own Secret Location will open a new division called simply SL alongside multinational premium, luxury and lifestyle brands at the open-air mall in the summer of 2015. The new YVR location will be smaller in square footage and will offer only retail.
“Our core business and focus will always be our concept store in Gastown,” explains founder Carey Melnichuck. “The YVR location is an opportunity to meet discerning travelers and local shoppers looking for quality crafted men’s and women’s fashion, beauty, home accessories and literature.”
