Drake General Store's new two-story flagship opens its doors today. The latest iteration of the hotel lobby shop/museum gift shop/flea market concept will continue to carry Drake's in-house apparel brands like Held in Common, Shared and Quarterly along with some exclusive new goodies. On the food side, there's jams, pestos and fancy ketchup by gourmet Nordic food brand Nicolas Vahé, artisanal gelato by Death in Venice and chocolates by Brandon Olsen. Japanese producer PUEBCO will bring decor items made from reworked vintage finds. As for apothecary, the store will stock Danish skincare brand Meraki.
The exclusive New Balance pop-up shop on the second floor is a must for sneakerheads, as it will carry styles that are exclusive to the new location.
The tl;dr version? It's a whole lot of cool under one roof. Stop in and see it for yourself at 2 Abell Street in West Queen West.
