When they say "one of six" does that mean six Olympic stores in general, six Olympic stores at YVR, or six new stores in general at YVR?

Wonder where other stores will be, outside of the airport? Obvious locations are Downtown (near or on Robson, in PC, or the re-developing Granville theatre block) and Whistler. But others? Maybe Metrotown or even other cities like Victoria, Kelowna, or even Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Calgary.

Quoting from the Official 2010 site ...

Four additional Olympic Stores are scheduled to open at YVR in the coming months in both the Domestic and International terminals. All stores are expected to open by early October 2008 and will be open seven days a week from 8:30 am to 7:30 pm. The Olympic Stores accept Visa products and cash only.

Despite what some people believe, these stores do sell some quality merchandise.

I need to check the store at Canada Olympic Park where I am, but I thought I have seen some Vancouver 2010 merchandise on sale already over there. So, I think the answer has already been mentioned in that first post by mr.x that there will be SIX such stores just in YVR alone.
