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 have added everything from Birkenstocks to Ray Bans.

They offer products produced here in B.C. by local artisans and makers as much as possible, and seek out companies who are socially responsible with a mindful and fair trade philosophy.

Merchant Quarters carries 150 brands including Ray Ban, Scotch & Soda, Birkenstock, Free People and Herschel, and over 3000 individual and unique items.
