This year, CHARALS celebrates thirty years in business. In these three decades, Canada has seen CHARALS expanded from carrying simply fine writing instruments to exquisitely crafted leather goods, luxury housewares, and even luggage. Today, CHARALS is truly a purveyor of the best accessories to life one can have.
Over the years CHARALS has built an identity both in Vancouver and across Canada. With it’s humble beginnings as a small shop nestled in the atrium of the Sinclair Centre at 757 West Hastings Street, CHARALS grew its business over time through careful curation of product assortment and providing world-class customer service. One can always count on walking in and finding something truly unique and rare, and be assured that it was expertly crafted and of great quality.
With continued success the store expanded into the adjacent space in 1997, and the product assortment grew. And in 2015, twenty-nine years after it first opened it’s doors, and with a growing demand for quality and luxury goods in Vancouver, CHARALS opened its second location at 171 Robson Street in the heart of the Stadium District. “The Vancouver market is currently demanding stores like ours and the products that we carry, so we felt the timing was right to expand again” says Al Charania of CHARALS.
The new location is an architectural marvel meticulously designed and fitted with custom fixtures and installments. It is also home to the only Montblanc in-store installment in Vancouver, and the only Graf von Faber-Castell Writing Boutique in Canada.
With the celebration of its 30th anniversary, CHARALS, aims to carry-on its success for another thirty years and truly create a lasting legacy not only in Vancouver or Canada, but the world. That will continue to be done by carrying the best goods and providing the best service. Throughout 2016 CHARALS will be holding various events to celebrate this momentous occasion.
