Breaking More Ice

New Zealand-based clothing company Icebreaker, makers of hand-picked merino wool adventure-wear will open a second Vancouver store in September. “Vancouverites have been such great supporters of Icebreaker, and we think the North Shore is an ideal fit for our second store,” general manager of retail Hazel Doocey said. Doocey cited Vancouver’s “mild climate “ and nature-minded people “who value natural fibers and sustainability “ as key factors in the brand’s ongoing success in the city. Icebreaker was established in 1994. There are now 3000 stores in 43 countries.
