First opened in Vancouver, Bang-On T-Shirts' shops have spread over the past decade to dot the globe. No matter which continent they call home, the custom-printing stores emphasize a retro style, filling their binders with hundreds of images inspired by fashion, pop culture, and music. Patrons flip through the binder of in-store designs, selecting ones to customize or print as is. Creative types bring their own photos or illustrations of the monster living under their house in for pressing. Once customers lay out their T-shirts and tank-top patterns, staffers emblazon the cotton tops right in front of them.

Seven-feet wide, 30-feet deep. Those were the pocket-sized dimensions of the original Wee Book Inn–and the reason for its name. Established on Whyte Avenue in 1971 by Edmonton native Darwin Luxford, that first shop spawned four additional locations during the 1980s, making space for an ever-growing selection of books and media.

In December 1990, disastrous fires destroyed two Wee Book Inns, including the flagship shop on Whyte Avenue. Within two years, however, both locations were rebuilt, restocked, and back in business. Today, Wee Book's roster of shops continues to do what it's done for more than four decades: buy and sell lightly used books and media, adjusting always to keep pace with the times. Inside, visitors may run into Wee Book's cats, as well, each of who bares the name of a former professional hockey player.

Since 1966, Suzy Shier stores have been the career woman's source for modern, fashionable clothes. This commitment to the latest trends is exemplified by their inventory policy, which rotates new pieces each week to keep shoppers on the crest of fashion. Shoppers can find essential workplace outfits, such as a one-button blazer to pair with straight-leg pants or plaid blazers with elbow patches. Beyond business wear, Suzy’s collections showcase weekend and casual styles outfitted with eye-catching embellishments. Sequins shimmer beneath the surface of a layered shell blouse, and metallic studs punctuate faux-suede ballerina flats.

In addition to keeping closets filled with the latest looks, Suzy Shier prioritizes affordability. Many pieces are $40 or less, with more extravagant items, such as coats and boots, ranging between $40 and $90. For frequent shoppers, the Prestige card grants 10% off all items as well as special access to coupons and promotions.

According to a feature in West Edmonton Local, Tara Pierce decided to make her childhood dreams a reality in 2008, when she quit her office job and opened her own eclectic boutique, Black & Bold. After trading in the shackles of rote office work for a panoply of designer dresses, hats, and shirts, she continued to follow her own muse in deciding what garments to stock. She strives to cultivate a selection that appeals equally to teens, adults, and fashion-forward birds that yearn to build their nest in a designer hat. Vibrant colours, bold prints, and timeless designs litter her expansive showroom, which is illuminated by a crystal chandelier and white-brick fireplace.
