Local luxury retailer mingles with global players at new YVR mall

VANCOUVER, May 16, 2015 – Lost in the announcement of 46 retailers at the highly anticipated McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport is the distinct lack of local business. BC’s own Secret Location will open a new division called simply SL alongside multinational premium, luxury and lifestyle brands at the open-air mall.

“Our core business and focus will always be our concept store in Gastown,” explains founder Carey Melnichuck. “The YVR location is an opportunity to meet discerning travellers and local shoppers looking for quality crafted men’s and women’s fashion, beauty, home accessories and literature.” The smaller YVR location will offer only retail.
