RYU Apparel Inc. said it’s planning on reopening the company’s flagship stores that have been closed due to COVID-19. The reopening of the company’s Vancouver and Toronto stores is scheduled for Saturday, April 16, 2021.

The Vancouver-based firm also announced plans to expand into Europe and the UK.

The expansion comes as the brand has undergone recent operational changes, including a streamlined supply chain and the move to the Shopify e-commerce platform.

“We are delighted to open our incredible line-up of products to customers in Europe and the UK through our e-commerce store,” said RYU CEO Cesare Fazari. “Europe is a growing market for sports apparel, and our expansion into the market is another key strategic milestone achieved in our global-omnichannel strategy.”
