Moose Creek mega shop­ping mecca

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - Holiday Planner and Gift Guide -

Moose Creek may be small but the Moose Creek Mall is a big draw.

Richard’s Men’s Wear, Vimi Shoes and Chez Thérèse are the main at­trac­tions at the shop­ping mecca on the vil­lage’s main street. The stores con­tinue to at­tract cus­tomers from the im­me­di­ate area as well as from other parts of East­ern On­tario and Québec.

Richard’s Men’s Wear of­fers a wide range of cloth­ing from jeans to for­mal at­tire.

Some pop­u­lar items at the store in­clude no-iron shirts made of 100 per cent cot­ton, for sport and dress wear. The shop also car­ries Point Zero and Hag­gar brand prod­ucts. It also sells a range of stylish suits. Qual­ity is al­ways a sound in­vest­ment, which ex­plains why in­formed con­sumers are glad to drive to Moose Creek to pick up high-end cloth­ing.

Next door, Bar­bara Re­naud, is the third-gen­er­a­tion fam­ily owner of Chez Thérèse Cloth­ing & Gifts.

The store is cel­e­brat­ing its 50th an­niver­sary this year. A large se­lec­tion of dresses as well as dress and ca­sual fash­ions.

The store also car­ries a num­ber of pop­u­lar brand lines, in­clud­ing Joseph Ribkoff, Columbia Sports­wear and Point Zero. Vimi Shoes fea­tures well-known women’s and men’s footwear. Con­sumers are look­ing for looks that are “multi-func­tional.” When peo­ple are buy­ing boots for them­selves or as gifts they are look­ing for a prod­uct that is both dressy and sporty. They also like lamb’s wool lin­ing and footwear that is low main­te­nance.

Con­ve­nience and ac­ces­si­bil­ity are ad­di­tional rea­sons why the mall is such a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for gift seek­ers.
