#EcoLuxLuv: Shoes & Macarons! Holt Renfrew Unveiling

Holt Renfrew has unveiled the latest phase to open at its Vancouver CF Pacific Centre flagship, and it is to-die-for! The newly expanded women’s ‘shoe hall’ with nine luxury designer boutiques rivals Nordstrom’s main floor, and in the spring Ladurée will open its second Vancouver location inside of Holt’s.

It was almost two years ago when Holt Renfrew announced that it would expand its CF Pacific Centre store by annexing about 40,000 sq. ft. of space formerly occupied by Sport Chek/Atmosphere. The first phase of the newly expanded 188,000 square foot store opened in September of 2016, which included a new men’s store as well as a 3,500 square foot 80-seat Holt’s Café.

Holt’s has now unveiled the second phase of the expansion, which includes an 8,500 square foot women’s shoe hall. Some of the world’s top luxury brands are featured in the new space, include Aquazurra, Céline, Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Manolo Blahnik, Miu Miu, Prada and Stuart Weitzman. The new shoe hall is about triple the size of the former department.

According to Retail-Insider, this spring, French luxury bakery and sweets maker Ladurée will open its second Vancouver location in a space adjacent to the newly expanded Holt’s shoe hall. At 500 square feet, Holt’s Ladurée will be smaller than the 1,200 square foot Robson Street retail space that opened to massive crowds in March of 2016.

In Vancouver later this year, Holt’s will reveal its new 7,000 square foot two-level personal shopping suites, featuring ‘The Apartment’ — a 1,000 square foot by-invitation-only customizable social space for its top clients. Holt’s is also in the process of expanding its jewellery, leather goods, and beauty departments. The expanded 30,000 square foot leather goods department will become the largest of its kind in Canada, and the beauty department will expand by 50% to almost 25,000 square feet.
