HOLT RENFREW GIVES BEAUTY A FACELIFT IN VANCOUVER

Canadian department store Holt Renfrew has created a brand new beauty hall at its Vancouver store.

The 16,000 sq ft space, formerly a menswear floor, has been transformed as part of a six-month building project. Designed by the 2007 store’s original architects, Janson Goldstein, it is a light and airy space in spite of its location, as light is filtered down onto the floor via a skylight over a central atrium.

Experience and a quasi spa-style experience is built into the department via nine private treatment rooms across the floor enabling the different skincare brands with concession space to make one-to-one appointments if necessary.

In total there are 29 skincare and fragrance brands with counter or concession space with new entrants for the city including Korean skincare business Sulwhasoo. Beauty is a booming sector and Holt Renfrew’s decision to double its space in this category via the refit speaks to that.
