Business Profile: Robinson's team knows the outdoors

On November 1, 1929, the shop we now know as Robinson’s Outdoor Store was opened by Mr. George W. Robinson.

The announcement brochure for the opening noted the location as "Opposite Colonist", and included the Robinson’s Creed. Point number eight states:

“… we aim to serve our customers as attentively as possible.”

Business Profile: Head over Heels for shoes

Niomi Wood is very passionate about shoes, and her aptly named women’s shoe store Head over Heels is an homage to the best in shoes as works of art.

With floor to ceiling windows for optimum ogling – and there’s rarely a woman that passes by without stopping to look – Niomi’s choice of location in The Atrium (at 1323 Blanshard Street) lends the store the look of an art gallery with stark, white pillars of varying heights showing off colourful sandals, flats, heels and wedges.
