A Foot Locker community power store is now open for business in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the footwear retailer plans to open a second in Toronto in early December.
The two Canadian locations come on the heels of community power store openings in Philadelphia, New York, London, Liverpool, Compton, Hong Kong and Detroit, according to a press release.
"We are so excited to bring our power store model to Canada over the next two months," Richard McLeod, vice president of marketing for Foot Locker, North America, said in the release. "Although the shopping experience is different with current guidelines, we look forward to bringing locally curated experiences to the Vancouver and Toronto sneaker communities."
The 15,000-square-foot store in Vancouver boasts a three-story retail experience, including a second-floor activation space. The store plans to host local DJs and brands in the space when the current conditions allow. The retailer has engaged local artists Tierney Milne and KC Hall to design custom artwork for the store's interior.
The Toronto community power store will open on Dec. 5 as a community hub for sneaker culture.
