Canadian travel and lifestyle brand makes its first home in Kitsilano as part of a wider expansion plan
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Monos, a travel and sustainability-first lifestyle brand offering high quality, award-winning and beautifully designed suitcases, bags and accessories, announces today the opening of their first retail location. The Vancouver-founded company has staked its flagship store on the bustling West 4th Avenue of Kitsilano (2131 West 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC, V6K 1N7).
At around 1900 square feet, Monos’ first store is intentionally designed to transport guests through a customer journey using key design aspects. Through the floor-to-ceiling glass exterior, guests will see a grand archway, leading them to a space to explore Monos’ colour collection, core pieces and travel accessories.
“We are thrilled to announce the opening of our flagship store where Monos was first conceived,” said Victor Tam, Co-Founder and CEO of Monos. “Our flagship store embodies the essence of Monos as a pioneer and innovator in the travel industry, where customers can experience our meticulously crafted products firsthand. This marks the start of an exciting new journey for us, and we eagerly anticipate expanding our reach and sharing our passion for travel with more people in the years to come.”
Monos’ retail expansion follows a $10M Series A and $30M Series B funding round last year, with the brand planning to open additional stores outside of British Columbia within the next several years. As a special perk, the Kitsilano store will have a limited edition sage green colour that is only available in store at this time. The sage green collection will be available online as of mid-August.
