Reopening in the Glebe: Clothing shops
As businesses begin to reopen in the Glebe, it’s more important than ever to support the local economy. We have put together a new blog series highlighting local businesses as they reopen in the neighbourhood.
This week we highlight clothing shops where you can turn your wardrobe into a fashionista’s dream with those new threads you’ve been waiting to scoop up.
New summer clothes, work outfits, sun dresses and more. Here’s a list of places where you can freshen up the closet.
Please remember that wearing face masks in indoor public space in Ottawa is now mandatory.

“We’ve recently released our line of Reworked Clothing,” says Bad Dog Co-owner Luke Webster. “As a vintage clothing store, we come across a lot of items that have flaws (stains, rips, holes) and instead of wasting these items, we are recreating new pieces. Reworks include denim shorts, sweat shorts, tube tops, crop tops, custom denim/plaid split shirts, along with much more. All are hand made in store.”
*note: Only three customers permitted in store at one time.
