Chinook Centre just got a little more stylish and technical with the expansion announcement of stores Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister Co. and Apple.
All three new additions are set to open their doors alongside another 60 to 70 new stores in the Fall 2010, making Chinook Centre the first Calgary home to both clothing stores, and only the second to have an Apple store.
“It’s absolutely exciting to be the first in market to bring such popular clothing stores to the city. It’s exciting, no question,” Chinook Centre general manager Terry Napper said.
Abercrombie & Fitch, renowned for casual, classic and trend-right clothes, will open a 7,811-square-foot store on the main level of the expansion, while Southern California-styled Hollister will open a 7,014 square foot location on the upper level.
Christine Leblanc moved to Calgary from Edmonton last year and missed shopping at Hollister, which was only carried at West Edmonton Mall in Alberta until this announcement.
“It’s definitely my favourite store, so I can’t wait until the fall,” she said.
