Canadian fashion house Aritzia plans its first store in San Antonio

Aritzia shoppers will soon be able to browse the Canadian brand’s “everyday luxury” clothing shelves in person. The brand is planning the first San Antonio store at The Shops at La Cantera.

The Canadian design house has a portfolio of 10 iconic brands that vary in price and style. It’s also celebrity endorsed. Remember the super puffy jacket worn by stars like Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez that TikTok was determined to find a dupe for?

Aritzia confirmed the new location in San Antonio on Monday, July 11. A representative for the brand told MySA that construction hasn’t started, but the tentative opening is scheduled for winter 2022. The store will span over 9,700 square feet of fashion, making it will make the largest in Texas. It will be larger than most of The Shops stores, which typically range in size from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet.

While the San Antonio store is dwarfed by the massive 46,000 square foot store announced for Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, it will be larger than some of its Texas counterparts. Aritzia has stores in Dallas, Houston and Austin. At 9,200 square feet, Dallas is home to the largest Aritzia store in Texas. The Houston and Austin slices are 4,790 square feet and 7,000 square feet, respectively.

On Friday, July 8, Aritzia CEO Jennifer Wong released first quarter financial results showing the company’s revenue increased by more than 60%. The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper, says Aritzia’s momentum is fueled by its US expansion, which includes opening 10 stores in 2022.
