Opening Remarks Calgary - STYLE Canada


Whether it’s a new location for a familiar chain or a new-to-town brand, we’ve compiled the very best for your next retail therapy session, after work beverage destination, or Sunday brunch in Calgary.


Bikini Village  – Chinook Centre 

Canada’s largest swimwear retailer is making a splash in Calgary with three new Bikini Village locations   – yes three! –  set to open in as many months. The first is now open at Chinook Centre and will be followed by Market Mall and CrossIron Mills locations scheduled to open in October.

“Expanding our online offering into a physical location allows us to serve customers who may prefer to take advantage of the selection and expertise we offer in store,” says Roméo Di Liello-Roberge, Bikini Village General Manager. 

Bikini Village offers specialized swimwear consultants in-store providing a more personalized service and welcoming atmosphere. Catering to a large range of needs and silhouettes, the company carries a vast selection of swim brands, a wide assortment of specialized beachwear and accessories as well as exclusive brands and collections that can only be found at Bikini Village.

The new 1,876 square foot store in Chinook features a sleek design inspired by cabanas and will offer Calgary’s best selection of swimwear, beachwear and accessories for both women and men.

Eighty-Eight Brewing Co – #1070 – 2600 Portland St SE 

Setting up shop in Ramsay, Calgary’s historic Brewery Flats district, Eighty-Eight is a new suds service option featuring ‘accessible, experimental beers.’ We can’t wait to try their ‘Tiffany Rosé Saison’ beer made with Pinot Noir grape juice.

Doors open August 22, 2018 – so you can try their Duotang Dry-hopped Sour before back-to-school season is upon us.
