SHOP IN A HERITAGE TOWN.
Chemainus is a town with an eclectic mix of people and shops that never cease to amaze visitors and residents alike.
The store fronts of Willow Street and Old Town are always growing and changing with the times.
They keep up with latest trends, many offer goods and services inspired by the necessity of becoming earth friendly.
Going green is obviously a given for Sandpipers Garden & Glass; they have quickly become a year round destination
for plant and garden lovers.
New shops, merchandise and services may surprise you.
If you’re looking for an all-natural spa experience and the town soap factory, you will find them in Old Town.
Willow Street now has a great health food store and two general stores that offer a diverse selection of goods from kitchen items to art.
If you’re a fan of coffee, chocolate and candy, Chemainus specializes in all of these.
Town favourite, Simply Super Chocolates, is a speciality shop that delivers right to your door.
New-kid-on-the-block is a sweet little fanciful shop called Hanzel & Gretel Candy Co. Ltd. “Come in, my sweeties!”
Step through this door and you just might find a witch inside.
In quoting an old expression “what’s old is new again,” it is so true in this little happening town.
Many shops and galleries carry clothing and accessories made out of natural fibres like linen, silk, and the burgeoning favourite – bamboo. Vintage clothing is still the rage these days so be sure to drop into the antique mall and collectible stores for some good deals on the real stuff. But if you are into the latest, Ma’s Gifts has fabulous BLING!
For the perfect gifts and festive fun, shop in Chemainus!
