International apparel and footwear retailer Vans has announced plans to open retail stores in Pacific Beach and the Gaslamp Quarter.
The Pacific Beach shop will be in a new building at 4462 Mission Boulevard that is one block from the boardwalk.
The Gaslamp store, which is being relocated from Horton Plaza, will be at 655 5th Avenue.
Both shops are slated to open in the late summer.
“Pacific Beach and the Gaslamp Quarter are logical markets for Vans’ retail operations,” said David Maxwell, vice president at Colliers International, which represented the landlords. “The bustling beach area and vibrant downtown scene present ideal opportunities to reach their target demographic in both residents and the steady stream of tourists who visit San Diego.”
Vans has 14 other stores and outlets in San Diego County.
