Sugarfina opens luxury candy store at Oakridge Centre in Vancouver

June 04, 2018


Sugarfina has a taste for Canadian expansion after opening it second stand-alone candy boutique here, this time catering to lucky shoppers at Oakridge Centre in Vancouver.
The 420 sq. ft. boutique opened in early May and features the brand’s fresh modern palette of white and robin’s egg blue. The space is well-positioned close to Aritzia, Saje, Gap, Swarovski and Oak & Fort in the recently renovated marquee shopping centre. Sugarfina is already drawing huge crowds, who are eager to try its famous confectionary.  
Think Retail is thrilled to work with this inspiring brand. Dubbed the ultimate candy shop for grownups, its array of treats cater to a discerning palette with premium and whimsical takes on old favourites, including champagne-infused gummies, peach Bellini sugar candies, maple bourbon balls, single malt scotch cordials and more.
Power couple Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick founded the innovative concept after watching an episode of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. They decided kids shouldn’t have all the fun so the duo embarked on a world tour, visiting fine candy makers and sourcing unique treats. They launched on online candy shop in 2012 and the following year opened their first boutique in Beverley Hills.
Today, Sugarfina has more than 25 across the United States, a number of shop-in-shops with Nordstrom and a rotation of pop-up locations. It debuted in Canada in November 2017 with a 950 sq. ft. boutique at Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, B.C.
Canadians are embracing the decadent concept we expect to share further exciting news soon.  To learn more, visit sugarfina.ca or contact the Think Retail team.
