Hello Vintage by Damian Lamartine
Canmore is a great place to find thrift stores with deals on previously loved items. Whether you’re looking for specific sporting gear, casual clothes or something warm and waterproof for the always changing mountain conditions, you don’t have to break the bank when you shop in Canmore. We recommend:
1. Crossway Community Thrift Store
This store has a huge selection of previously loved clothing, outdoor equipment, sporting goods and anything else you can imagine. They’re non-profit and provide charitable services to the community through their Back to School and Jacket Frost programs that ensure families in need have the necessary supplies for their children. They donate all their profits to charity. Last year they gave over $140,000 back to the community
2. Hello Vintage
This trendy vintage store is in the heart of downtown. They feature a large selection of clothing including leather jackets, furs, shirts for every occasion, jeans, dresswear and footwear, as well as seasonal items in store. All of their items are “certified vintage” and their staff are very friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have.
3. Switching Gear
Switching Gear sells used sports equipment and outdoor gear as well as casual and technical clothing. This store is packed with equipment that reflects the season. Look for hidden gems or ask the staff for the equipment you need.
So get shopping! You will be supporting local, community businesses while getting everything you need. Your be glad you visited one of Canmore's thrift stores - and so will your wallet!
