RYU Apparel Secures Second Brick-and-Mortar Retail Location

Vancouver retailer to open new store on Thurlow and Robson

VANCOUVER, April 7, 2016 /CNW/ - RYU Apparel Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RYU & Frankfurt Stock Exchange: RYA), a tailored, technical training brand engineered for the fitness, training and performance of the multi-discipline athlete, is pleased to announce it has secured a location for its second retail store. 

Situated in the heart of the Robson corridor, Vancouver's most established retail strip, the new store will be located at 805 Thurlow Street, adjacent to retail anchors Banana Republic and Aritzia. Slated to open in the summer of 2016, the retail space spans approximately 1,100 square feet and will be designed with the same industrial, yet modern aesthetic as RYU's flagship store, which opened in November 2015.

"After initial success with our flagship store in Kitsilano – the athletic hub of the city – Robson was the next logical location," said Marcello Leone, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board for RYU. "As Vancouver's premiere shopping destination it attracts shoppers from all corners of the city and beyond."

RYU continues to investigate other major metropolitan locations to further its store expansion plans.
