Sitka has opened its Vancouver flagship store. Offering the entire brand portfolio, the 2,000-sq.-ft store is constructed partially from the Rainforest Alliance’s Certified Smart Wood and from salvaged or used wood. It also features a living wall outside designed by Paradise Cityscapes Landscapes and Greenroof Construction. Sitka’s store opening was celebrated with a big party hosting local artists and musicians. The label will continue to host art openings for local artists, donate product to school groups and charities, and support the Surfrider foundation.
