The Retail Game March 08 2017
We are coming to 2 years since opening our flagship store in the heart of Osborne Village, Winnipeg Canada. Largely based on minimalist concepts, the walls of the inner half of the retail space are lined with metal-piping clothing racks while the outer half is occupied by a mini-ramp. 2 full sized change rooms sit in the center of the space and a private office holds inventory and design equipment.
Consigned pieces fill the majority of the racks while occasional orders from retail outlets are also brought in. Shop riders hang out and skate the mini but anyone with a board is welcome to a quick session while shopping.
Tucked away in the lower level of 106 Osborne, a cool brick stairwell leads you into a double-layered vestibule from the bustling crowds above. While the sharp and resounding snaps echo within our shop throughout the daytime skate sessions, appointments are taken, design assignments are completed and online orders get fulfilled. All in a day's work.
