Pinkberry Opens on High Street

October 08, 2013

Last week, Los Angeles based, Pinkberry opened its 5th Canadian location at High Street, in Abbotsford, British Columbia. The store is 1200 sq.ft and is strategically situated on a corner, adjacent other top brands such as H&M, David's Tea, Starbucks, Purdy's, Booster Juice,…etc.

The Grand Opening of the store was a huge party. First, DJ Philharmonic brought the beat and got the large crowd moving. Then, Pinkberry, offered free frozen yogurt with toppings to all who came out. The evening was a great success.

Pinkberry is the original brand that reinvented the frozen yogurt category with its tart, light and refreshing taste and freshness. The company opened its first location in 2005. Today, there are 275+ Pinkberry stores in 19 countries.

Pinkberry is looking to expand in British Columbia. Markets of interest include Vancouver, Victoria, and Whistler. High pedestrian streetfront locations and open air centres are preferred. Stores size ranges from 800-1200 sq.ft.

High Street is an open air, 600,000 sq.ft, 3 level, regional centre. The property is owned by Shape Properties. High Street has approximately 90 stores and is anchored by Walmart Supercentre, London Drugs, Marshalls, Cineplex VIP, and H&M.

I'd like to thank Brain Nosko of Shape Properties for all of his help, efforts, and patience, throughout our negotiations. Brian and I worked together some time ago at Morguard. He is intelligent, hard working, and pleasure to deal with. A class act. He also did a fantastic job leasing up this centre. The powers that be at Shape should promote this man.
