Right now in Vancouver it’s incredibly hard to buy gifts for friend’s kids if you saw something you want to get at Pottery Barn Kids.Â There’s no CanadianÂ website, no catalogue,Â and no store.Â SoÂ you’d have to call a store in Toronto,Â already know what you want and hope that theyÂ can ship it out to you. Because you can’t order from the U.S.Â And if I’m buying for friends in the U.S. I get dinged on the exchanged rate.
So IÂ emailed themÂ to ask what was up given that Restoration Hardware seems to have gotten it correct when they launched theirÂ kids line.Â Well it turnsÂ out they’reÂ opening a Vancouver store in 2009.Â Â
Thank you for your e-mail and for your feedback. I can tell you that there are plans to open a Pottery Barn Kids in the Vancouver-area in 2009. I apologize for the inconvenience that is caused by not having the catalog or Website available in Canada. I do hope youâ€™ll be on the look out for us next year.
Yay! No more having to pay exchange rates for friends in the U.S., and I’ll be snag a fancy diaper bag to useÂ as a laptop bag.
