Meet Your Neighbour: The Posh Shoppe
The Posh Shoppe, a lifestyles retail boutique in Collingwood Downtown is the perfect shopping destination for those who appreciate on trend, classic and edgy fashions and accessories that cater to the way we live and play in Collingwood and the Blue Mountains. Owner, Melanie McBride opened the retail boutique in October of 2018 and showcases numerous labels from all over the world including but not limited to Sportalm, Alpnrock, Krimson&Klover, Luhta , Goldbergh as just an example of her Apres Ski lines.
Like many small business owners here in Collingwood, Melanie McBride, who has a degree in Management Economics from the University of Guelph and is also a practicing Realtor, started coming to the area in the early 2000s eventually became one of those weekenders who chose never to go home.
Melanie’s passion for fashion led to the opening of The Posh Shoppe. “I absolutely am a shopaholic and I thought why just fill my closet when I can help everyone fill theirs as well ”, recalls Melanie. “This store has my stamp all over it. In the summer it has a beachy relaxed vibe and in the Winter, we are all about the Apres”
The Posh Shop often hosts trunk shows, VIP events, open houses and specializes in fashion parties where you can book the store for a private shopping party with your group of friends.“Fashion has an attitude not an age. If someone thinks that they may be beyond some of the styles we have in the shop, I can change that mindset pretty quickly. When you’re walking into The Posh Shoppe, you’re not just walking into a boutique; it’s about the experience and the atmosphere” affirms Melanie.
Fun fact: On ocean voyages between Britain and India, the most desirable cabins—the ones that didn’t get the afternoon heat—were on the Port side over and on the Starboard side home. These luxury tickets were supposedly stamped with the letters POSH. A fitting tribute to a boutique that sits right next to beautiful Georgian Bay.
If you’re looking for a fun, relaxed boutique where you’ll find stylists that have a passion for getting you dressed, The Posh Shoppe located at 49 Hurontario Street in Collingwood Downtown should be on your list. Check out their social media:
