Rolex Boutique, Vancouver

Inspired by the Rolex Oyster, the world’s original waterproof wristwatch designed in 1926, Western Canada’s first Rolex boutique features laser-etched aqua glass, cream-coloured leather and bronze detailing set amid a grand showroom and private customer lounge (complete with a bar and sofas). Guests can expect an elevated retail experience, with a luxe-in-mind design that’s “reflective of its West Coast surroundings,” says owner Sassan Pourfar. Find the 2,000-square-foot-plus boutique (Rolex’s biggest store in the Americas) in Vancouver’s Alberni luxury district. globalwatchco.com

The Greenhouse, Calgary

Focused on providing eco-friendly living to the masses, the Greenhouse specializes in sustainable products, including all things organic, upcycled and bamboo. The new lifestyle shop, which debuts in Calgary’s Market Mall, is thoughtfully curated with products ranging from bedding and cleaning supplies to greeting cards and decor—most of which are Canadian-made. Plus it stocks a range of made-in-Calgary essential oils. facebook.com/canadianbamboocomfort —Julianna Sonntag

Doughnut Party, Edmonton

Since gaining a cult following in Edmonton with their beautifully glazed and decorated cake-style doughnuts, the minds behind Edmonton-based Moonshine Doughnuts—Matthew Garrett and Simon Underwood—will be opening the doors of their first bricks-and-mortar shop in Holland Plaza. moonshinedoughnuts.ca —Jyllian Park

Prima Stone, Vancouver

Stepping into Vancouver for the first time, the Edmonton-founded company creates vertical and flooring surfaces with thin cuts of natural stone that are slim enough to back-light yet give a full-slab effect for less. (Think Carrara marble at half the price, and tough-to-source blue onyx.) Prima Stone’s new store in Vancouver will be a shared space with furniture designer Kate Duncan and GE Monogram. primastone.ca —Daniela Rodriguez Chevalier
