Victoria Secret Opens in Edmonton

Shhhh. West Edmonton Mall has a new secret. The first Victoria Secret in Western Canada opens tomorrow, Thursday, August 12. It’s promising to be an uplifting affair. The new flagship store is 17,994 square feet featuring both Victoria Secret and PINK – the brand aimed at teens.

Victoria Secret is full of promises – miraculous cup-size boosting bras, sexy bikinis guaranteed to achieve beach bombshell status, clevage-lifting dresses, and lingerie so provocative no talking is required.

I keep believing in the promises. I subscribe to Victoria Secret’s daily emails. I order online and pay the exorbant international shipping fees. But, stand in line for hours tomorrow – line-ups to get into the store, line-ups to try things on, and line-ups to pay. No, thanks. Not me. I’ll happily miss this panty party.

A Victoria Secret Angel will be here. Supermodel Candice Swanepoel will be signing autographs on Thursday from 6-8pm. Let’s hope she brought her wings.
