If you haven’t checked out downtown Victoria’s dreamy new retail shop yet, now is the time to go!

Merchant Quarters General Store carries all of the products from brands you know and love, to unique finds you can’t get anywhere else.

To kick off the month of August, we’ve partnered with them to give away a stunning Free People Ottoman tunic sweater – in any colour of your choosing! You can check out the contest details below.

Even better than that, they’re offering an exclusive 10% off discount on Ottoman sweaters for their pre-sale launching July 28th!

The cool texture of these oversized tunics make for the perfect transition from summer to fall, and they come in a variety of colours including: Dark Petals, Electric Pink, Ivory, Ecru, Black, Nutmeg, Tropical Bay, Honey Dew, Powder Blue, Apricot, Elecric Tangerine, and Ice Grey.

The stunning piece is also extremely versatile and can be worn several different ways, not just a sweater! Also wear it over leggings as a tunic, or even as a sweater dress with boots.

Merchant Quarters General Store opened their brand new location in March – and what a fabulous location it is! – and they carry everything from flannel shirts to cheddar cheese.

Located on the bustling corner of Government Street, Merchant Quarters is a modern version of the classic general store – inspired by the early general merchant stores of the 1800’s.

Though they have done away with the harnesses and tobacco of the olden days, you’ll still find an array of artisan items – and they have added everything from Birkenstocks and Ray Bans, to all the local artisan crafts and art you could need!
