Zumiez coming to Abbotsford’s Sevenoaks Shopping Centre

Action sports retailer opening soon in Abbotsford mall

A leading retailer in items catered to young people is coming soon to Abbotsford’s Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

Zumiez, a Washington state based company which specializes in apparel, footwear, accessories and hardgoods, is soon to debut in the Abbotsford mall.

Zumiez markets clothing for action sports such as skateboarding, snowboarding and motocross, and stores are often stocked with couches and video games to encourage customers to shop for longer amounts of time. There are no details on what the layout of the Abbotsford location will look like, but other locations also have a “skate shop” within.

Some of the available brands at Zumiez include: Vans, Thrasher, Adidas, Obey, Converse, Nixon and many more.

The store has been a publicly traded company since 2005, and operates stores in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Locally, there are Zumiez retail locations in Langley, Burnaby, Surrey, Coquitlam, Vancouver and Tsawwassen.

The company has a large social media following, with 1.1 million followers on Instagram, 1.5 million likes on Facebook over 200,000 followers on Twitter.

Zumiez is occupying some of the space in the south portion of the mall which was vacant for several months after Gap left Sevenoaks earlier this year.

It’s unclear when the official opening date for Zumiez is, but signs state the store is “opening soon”.
