Do you ever spend your morning’s searching through your closet, trying on every piece of clothing you own, and still can’t find the perfect outfit? Well, search no further, you have a personal stylist close to home.
Jake’s is predominately a Surf and Skate shop, housing all the latest fashion trends in the bohemian, beach-side style. The store carries big-name brands such as Roxy, Billabong and Volcom, but also sticks to its sustainable roots by showcasing TenTree, Friggin’ Lip Balm, and many other Canadian brands. Jake’s opened its two-storey location in 2006 in the Historic Downtown Bowmanville core. If Jake’s doesn’t suit your typical fashion style, you can visit its neighbouring sister stores: Cactus and Heritage.
Whether you are looking for a swimsuit, or a business casual blazer, Jake’s has you covered. The staff works hard at maintaining a high standard in customer service by acting as your own personal stylist each and every time you enter the store.
“I love making a personal connection to my customers,” says Brittney Boone, District Manager. “Every customer that walks through the door is greeted, and all of the clothing you see in the store has been hand picked from our brand warehouses to fit our customer’s personal styles.”
You can definitely rest assured knowing that you’ll be looking fabulous in whatever you leave the store with!
