These spaces get it.

Arc'Teryx

Calgary

Arc’teryx

Originally hailing from Vancouver, Arc’teryx trades its signature temperate rainforest gear for more insulated mid-layers and outerwear to combat the coming prairie winter. Its 2,300-square-foot space features a trail map of the Rockies on the wall, along with multimedia areas for events and teaching clinics. They’ve also launched a series of community hikes and trail adventures, so making mountain friends should be a breeze. 815 17 Ave SW #150, arcteryx.com

Edmonton

So Pretty by Cara Cotter – Flagship Store

Local Cara Cotter has finally opened up a flagship store in Edmonton for her “royalty inspired” jewellery, presenting large, dramatic stones in elegant, modern settings. The new store is trim and millennial-chic, replete with rose-gold accents, marble tabletops and geometric displays. Cotter shares the 700-square-foot space with long-time pop-up collaborator Pura Botanicals, and soon she’ll be releasing her fall collection, built around an “unusual” selection of diamonds and solid gold in her signature style. 10120 124th St., soprettycaracotter.com

Plum

Plum Home and Design

This mother-daughter-owned design and decor store recently moved into the renovated Oliver Exchange building. They’re doubling their floor space to become a 2,000-square-foot retail area, selling everything from nursery essentials to jewellery to antique tableware. They’ll soon be joined in the 1913 heritage building by city market regular Brio Bakery; the artisanal baker comes with its sourdoughs, croissants and brioche, too, so any shopping trips are bound to smell amazing. 12019A 102nd St., plumhomeanddesign.com
