Canada Goose Continues its ‘Quest West’ with Plans for 3 New Stores
Performance apparel brand Canada Goose is continuing its retail expansion across the West Coast with plans for its first Los Angeles store, a permanent presence east of Seattle in Bellevue, Wash. and a second location in Las Vegas. The three new stores are part of the company’s plan, announced earlier this year, to more than double its current global store count by 2028.
The new stores will join the brand’s growing roster of Western U.S. locations — which include existing stores in Denver and Aspen, Colo., Las Vegas and Costa Mesa, Calif. — and they are arriving as Canada Goose expands its warm-weather product categories, including apparel, lightweight down and footwear.
The brand’s second location in Las Vegas opened May 26, 2023 at The Shops at Crystals, joining the current store located at The Wynn, which opened in 2022. Then, in June, Canada Goose’s first LA store will open at the Beverly Center, marking a homecoming of sorts for the brand, which is unofficially known as the go-to jacket for film crews in Hollywood. Finally, the brand will open a new, larger location at The Bellevue Collection in Washington State following the popularity of its pop-up there, which opened in December 2021.
The unique characteristics of each city will be integrated with the Canada Goose brand at each location, with a design concept inspired by the great outdoors of Canada, featuring natural color schemes and materials including stone, granite and wood.
With more than 500 artworks in 50+ stores, Canada Goose has the largest retail collection of Inuit art in the world, and each new location will feature a gallery-like design with new installations from this collection. For its store at The Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas, Canada Goose is partnering with Toronto-based artist collective Native Art Department International to highlight the larger theme of movement between nature and life. The Bellevue Collection location will feature artwork from Caroline Larson, a Toronto-born and Brooklyn-based artist known for her intricate woven-like oil paintings. Each store will also feature additional sculptures by Inuit artisans.
