We make it feel like you’re here with your girlfriends and its like a party on the floor,” says Darah Greenwood, owner of Poppy and Olive in Sunnyside Shopping Mall.
And that’s why Poppy & Olive is being seriously shopped!
Sometimes retailers make promises they cannot keep. It’s a tough business. Thus far, however, Darah’s promise to bring trending fashion to customers who enjoy a holistic, feel-good experience is hitting a pretty high batting average.
Fashionistas find the experience excitable. Mums feel assured that their pics are cool! And frequent flyers usually leave with more than their carry-ons can hold!
It’s no wonder Darah decided to expand a bit to accommodate a jean bar and athleisure for cool streetwear. Mission-minded Darah sources fresh product, which is showcased daily using a powerful social media campaign.
“Our customers are drawn to ‘come on in,’” explains Darah. “The vibe is the hospitality of a real Cape Bretoner. That’s where my father’s from. And also Terry Delaney, who is a ‘Caper’ through and through. Having worked with our family for decades, we’re fortunate to have her on board!”
Darah continues, “This great little success story might not have happened without a lot of retail coaching from my mum, the great community shoppers committed to brick and mortar stores, and the quiet confidence of the many successful Sunnyside retailers. And not to mention the free parking with the best Indoor parking in the region.”
To her South End customers, Darah challenges “It’s not that far! I do it every day. And if you can’t make it, but see something you love on Instagram, call me. I do drop offs a lot!”
Book a private shopping party soon. Treat your friends to a little bubbly and sweetness, loads of dress up fun. It’s on the house.
