The Urban Bakery's walls drip with an eclectic array of dashing duds, spanning the spectrum of high-top sneakers, graphic tees, and flat-brimmed hats. Don a vibrant shirt by LRG ($32+), liven up ligaments with a classic pair of Reebok pumps ($119), keep pants pinioned with a belt ($25+), and deflect bird droppings with the power of a hat ($30+) too handsome to inspire avian vengeance. Sale items, which typically hover around 50% off, often include shoes for less than $50. Trusted brands such as Nike, The Hundreds, and Stüssy all consider The Urban Bakery a suitable place to kick it until six in the morning.
With a proud emphasis on environmental consciousness, Dollar Wise Quality Cleaners refresh sullied garments and fabrics with due deference to clients and the planet alike. In addition to cleansing clothes with environmentally responsible cleaning solvents, the staff replaces buttons, performs alterations, and cleans rugs sullied with smashed Magic 8-Balls. Dollar Wise's eco-friendly van zips between garment drop-off points and store locations while running on a tank full of recycled vegetable oil.
Boutique Unique was formed under the steady hands of Brenda Weiss, the shop's resident artist and a self-taught bead-smith who learned her craft through books and trial and error.

Inside, visitors may browse an eclectic selection of women's clothing, home décor, and handmade jewellery, including specially made pieces for big events such as weddings and graduations.
