Retail Scout Out


Reality Check: 42 shopping days left until Christmas.
Savvy Check: Our savvy scouts report that regardless of your neighbourhood or child’s age, you will find lots of new stores to explore, as well as some old faves with new coordinates.

The Latest
The biggest news moms can use in Vancouver is that Ivivva Athletica, a new concept store from Lululemon with a line of clothes for active girls aged six years and up opens November 27. Ivivva’s flagship store opens on Kitsilano’s 4th Ave with (of course) a dance party. Ivivva’s dance-inspired, cross-functional clothes have been designed to celebrate movement and meet the needs of active young girls (think: playing in the park, school, dance class or soccer practice). Look for new takes on the famous Lulu hoodies, rain coats, groove pants, headbands and more!

Don’t Leave the Babies in the Corner
On Mount Pleasant’s Main Street, a brand-new clothing and accessory boutique opens mid-November, aptly named Main Street Baby. Owner Joanna Mileos also runs Granville Island Toy Store. Her focus with this store will be 0 – 24 month olds and on local suppliers such as Po Po’s Ponchos, and Sweet Peanut.
