Keep­ing it stylish from head to toe

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Glen­garry area shop­pers will be able to se­lect ev­ery­thing they need from head to toe at Moose Creek Mall when buy­ing gifts this Christ­mas.

There doesn’t have to be a wed­ding on your list to shop at Ju­lian­nah's Dress & Bridal Shop.

The shop has a range of both bridal, prom, spe­cial oc­ca­sion and for­mal dresses.

It also car­ries jew­elry in­clud­ing pearls and crys­tal and rhine­stone neck­lace sets, bracelets and ear­rings. The shop also has ball gowns which are quite pop­u­lar.

Man­ager Me­lanie Char­bon­neau has no­ticed styles tend to change about ev­ery six months, and said while pre­vi­ously fit­ted dresses were more pop­u­lar, now cus­tomers of­ten pre­fer looser fit­ting de­signs in a range of fab­rics.

When go­ing out for the evening for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, Mrs. Char­bon­neau likes to se­lect her own dresses from Ju­lian­nah’s shop.

She added keep­ing it lo­cal is also a good rea­son for peo­ple to shop at Ju­lian­nah's Dress & Bridal Shop, and other shops in the Moose Creek Mall “to keep busi­nesses alive.”

At Vimi Shoes, man­ager Michel Théorêt re­lated one of the big draws at the store is Rieker brand women’s and men’s shoes. “They are our big­gest seller,” he said, adding since this footwear is made in Europe, peo­ple rec­og­nize it as a qual­ity prod­uct.

Mr. Théorêt re­marked footwear fash­ion has evolved over the years and said styles have gone more “multi-func­tion.” 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.

Mr. Théorêt added while peo­ple come from all over the area to shop at Vimi Shoes. Oth­ers shop there be­cause of the con­ve­nience and ac­ces­si­bil­ity.

As an­other ad­van­tage, there is plenty of free park­ing at the Mall. “Lots of se­niors come here,” Mr. Théorêt said, adding: “We have coun­try ser­vice at coun­try prices.”

Some­times the store is also able to lower its prices be­cause it pays lower over­head costs than stores lo­cated in the city, so it can ac­com­mo­date more peo­ple’s needs.
