VANCOUVER, BC, AUGUST 10, 2018: Curated luxury lifestyle boutique Colton’s Couture is relaunching its original Oakridge Centre location after the completion of a two (2) month and $250,000 renovation.
Colton’s International, an online luxury fashion wholesale provider, ventured into brick & mortar retail in 2016 with the launch Colton’s Couture as a ‘pop-up shop’ in a vacant 900-square-feet storefront in Oakridge Centre. Impressive sales and strong customer demand solidified the concept for owner Howard Colton, and with an investment of $500K and four months, the location became permanent.
With the launch of the second Colton’s Couture in CF Richmond Centre, Colton reflected on the first-impression value of launching luxury shopping in suburban Lower Mainland, and initiated the move of the original boutique to a secondary location in Oakridge Centre, while the location was being renovated.
“The runaway success of the CF Richmond Centre location convinced me that the stores themselves played a crucial part in the perception and understanding of luxury in brick & mortar context. The decision to renovate Oakridge Centre was made quickly and the results are stunning. Our clientele has an expectation of the highest level of product quality, comfort, and service, and this is what Colton’s Couture delivers,” says Howard Colton, President of Colton International.
“As we move forward with the additional boutiques, we strive to provide this experience, no matter where the location.”Inspired by the cream and gold elegance of the House of Dior, the revamped location soft-launched this week with an official launch slated for mid-September 2018. The Oakridge Centre and CF Richmond Centre will celebrate the relaunch with the roll-out of their newly created Loyalty Program, day-of customer specials, and a series of invite-only ‘meet & greets’ with VIP clients, media, local influencers, and collaborators.
Colton’s Couture is a curated luxury boutique concept consisting of several locations in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The product selection includes the latest in international trends and the mainstays of luxury design houses for women and men including Gucci, Off-White, Dior, Christian Louboutin, Balenciaga, Acne Studios, Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, and more.
