Christie’s Clothing is all stocked up with fresh new fashions for Spring and Summer.
From its intriguing window displays to the comfortable surroundings of the store, Christie’s is focused on satisfying its customers. For more than 45 years, this Collingwood family business has provided a wide range of options to the discerning shopper seeking fine quality, interesting fashions offered at competitive prices.
On a stroll through Historic Downtown Collingwood, we noticed that the window displays at Christie’s had just been refreshed so we popped in to find out what was new.
Michael Christie and his sister Dana denBok who own and operate the business were busy receiving, unpacking and merchandising new spring and summer fashions. “We’re getting new stock in every day now and we expect to be busy leading up to prom season. Essentially, we offer classic apparel for men, women and children and we specialize in custom suits at all price points.” notes Dana.
“Over the past two years, supply chain issues have lead to stock shortages so it’s a good idea to start planning a bit in advance this year for graduation or summer weddings for the best selection, but it only takes us a few days turn-around time for suit alterations.” advises Michael.
One of our favourite things about shopping at Christie’s is the exceptional customer service. Dana, Michael and his wife Sandra go above and beyond. This is especially helpful when you’re shopping for a gift. You know you want something special, but are just not quite sure what and their complimentary gift wrapping ties everything up with a nice neat bow.
Fun fact: The first thing Michael had to learn when he started working for his father Ed twenty-eight years ago was to sew.
Christie’s Clothing is conveniently located in the heart of Collingwood’s historic downtown district, just steps away from Clerkson’s Home Store where Sandra likes to shop and after a busy day Sandra and Michael like to enjoy a nibble and a few sips at Prime Seven Nine.
Ed Christie opened the store in 1976 with an approach to fashion retailing that continues today. Carefully selected, high quality menswear and women’s fashions fill the racks and shelves. The array is diverse, catering to the multi-faceted lifestyle of our community.
