Downtown Victoria is about to lose one of its major landmarks, as Chapters Victoria prepares to close its doors… and relocate to the Mayfair Shopping Centre.

The store will be rebranded in the process, adopting the namesake of its parent company Indigo Books & Music Inc.

Though an exact timeline has not been set, Indigo public relations manager Kate Gregory told Victoria Buzz that the store will be closing in late summer, with Indigo opening at Mayfair in the fall.

Gregory said that the new location “reflects our new store concept showcasing a warm and modern aesthetic where customers can explore the best in books, beautiful and exclusive in-house designed lifestyle products, and must-have speciality brands.”

She added that Chapters’ current staff will be relocated to the new store at Mayfair when it opens.
