575 North Road - "Folklife Village" shopping centre on beautiful Gabriola Island. Ten minutes from the ferry, and on the local bus route, this retail mall is pretty much ground zero for local activity. Lots of parking, and all amenities close by.

Premises Details:

With lots of windows on a busy corner, this shop has the best location in the Village, with year-round traffic and plenty of parking. The timber-frame construction offers a beautiful backdrop for retail display, and the space - nearly 1000 sq ft - includes an office and private bathroom. The iconic "Folklife Village" is a magnet for tourists and has become the centre of town for this busy gulf island.

Size in square feet:
979 sq ft

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Demographics are on our side, and the island population is growing. For flexibility: the store itself is made up of two smaller retail units that were combined. There is still the ability to divide the one store into two departments, or, with the consent of the landlord, completely separate the units. Commercial space on the island is scarce at this time, and this is considered a prime location.

Competition / Market:

The landlord has offered exclusivity in terms of women's clothing. Visibility and convenience are part of the package too, with a restaurant across the walkway, and a busy grocer, a pharmacy and a liquor store drawing retail traffic seven days a week. For over 25 years this store has dominated the women's fashion market on Gabriola Island, and continues to do so to this day.

Reasons for selling:

After a long career in the fashion business, the owner would like to retire and turn the store over to someone who has a 'passion for fashion'.

Trading hours:

10am to 5pm seven days a week

Years established:
27 years

Other Information

Furniture / Fixtures value:
$20,000 (CAD) - included in the asking price
