Summer is winding down and the start of an exciting new school year has arrived. Go back to school in style by shopping locally. Use today’s post from our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, to scout some of the best shopping options near their Stratford apartments.
A day downtown
Start your search for autumn apparel, electronics or accessories downtown. The Stratford City Centre offers hundreds of boutique retail and service options. Whether you need a stylish new outfit or a stylish new haircut, this downtown district is the place to go without travelling a far distance. Begin your shopping at the one-of-a-kind Martingale Vintage (92 Wellington Street) for unique women’s fashion. This store is only a four-minute drive or a six-minute bike ride from Avon Place Apartments (359 – 397 Railway Avenue). You can also start at The Touchmark Shop (37 Ontario Street), a local store with affordable styles appropriate for all ages. To get here, drive five minutes from Avon Place Apartments.
Secondhand for savings
For some, secondhand shopping is a way to cross items off the back-to-school shopping list while on a tight budget. Covet: The Community Closet (165 Downie Street, Unit #D) recycles gently used clothing. Before you shop here, go through your own closet. Are there clothes that are too small or that you no longer wear? Create extra closet space and give back to the community by donating your clothes here today. This thrift store is just over a five-minute bike ride from Avon Place Apartments.
Festival Marketplace Shopping Centre
Take your pick of stores at the Festival Marketplace Shopping Centre (1067 Ontario Street). This local shopping mall is under a ten-minute drive from Avon Place Apartments. Complete your seasonal shopping trip in one stop by choosing this Stratford shopping hub.
Celebrate the arrival of autumn and the start of a new school year with a local shopping trip accompanied by friends or family.
