Because you shop local

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for every person who walked through our door and clicked through to our website this year. It means so much to us that customers chose to shop local and support our business. Below are five ways you made an impact by shopping local.

Because you shop local… 

Local jobs are available

Local businesses create jobs which are held by local residents. Spending your money locally helps strengthen the local economy.

Neighbourhoods remain vibrant

Vacant store fronts are terrible for the vitality of a community. Shopping local keeps retail spaces occupied and brings people to neighbourhoods like the Exchange District. Local stores keep neighbourhoods vibrant, strong and desirable.

Exceptional customer service is provided

The existence of brick-and-mortar stores allows for a personable shopping experience. We can assist in customizing product, give professional advice and have repairs done while you wait in store.

You can find completely unique products

Local shops infuse neighbourhoods with diverse products and flavour. One-of-a-kinds and items you will not find anywhere else can often be found in local shops.

Dreams come true

You are supporting the dreams of artists, creators and entrepreneurs every time you enter a local shop.

    Recently I purchased a ring and a couple of other unique items for my fiancé from your store. She very much loves the items and we also like to support by buying the unique pieces created by the artists that are made for helping out local charities and organisations.
    The staff are very welcoming and helpful, as well as easily approachable.
    Well done!

    It’s always a pleasant experience visiting your shop, whether we’re looking for a gift or for ourselves the selections are many and wonderfully displayed, the only difficulty is making a decision………. Hillary is always so helpful in this regard and as a result our choice is usually the perfect quality piece of jewelry which has been gift wrapped and placed in a lovely velvet bag.

    Thank-you Hillary for all your help over the years, Winnipeg is so lucky to have you !
