For our next day of WEBIA’s 12 Days of Holidays business feature campaign, we are focusing on one of the fantastic businesses that help keep us looking put together through every season, The Quick Nickel.

The Quick Nickel first opened in 1989, and has been one of the go-to clothing boutiques in the West End, and Vancouver for over 30 years!  Owner Lisa Arthurs set out to combine her passion for fashion, with her  love of a great deal, resulting in one of our neighbourhood’s most iconic, and long-standing businesses.

Lisa’s knack for scouting the latest trends, combined with her relationships with top quality manufacturers ensures that Quick Nickel  is able to have the best of both worlds; combining a small locally-owned retailer with the products and merchandise that you love from your favorite brands, at affordable pricing. With new clothing for men and women arriving nearly everyday, there’s always something new for you to browse through, in-person or at their new online shop.

In addition to clothing the West End, Lisa and the friendly team at Quick Nickel are always looking for ways to help out the community! From board-level involvement with the West End BIA, to partnering with tons of events each year, to helping promote local artists and other businesses on Davie Street, they do it all. Quick Nickel is crucial to the unique fabric that is the West End (no pun intended)!

Let’s shop and support local this holiday season and ensure that we are purchasing our Christmas gifts at small businesses who care about our neighbourhood! The Quick Nickel has everything you need to keep warm and stay stylish this winter.
