Store Closing

chartreuse style store front


Dear Customers and Friends,

These last few years have been very trying, requiring a lot of change and then change again.  I know I am not alone in taking time to reflect on what is important in life, so I am making one more change by closing the shop, to make space for something new in the neighbourhood.  Keep an eye on 1692 Queen St. W. for Pop-up retail and events coming soon to this space.

As the retail part of my eco-friendly fashion journey is coming to an end, I want to thank all of my customers and friends that came through my doors or shopped online throughout the 11 years.  You were enthusiastic about changing the world one garment at a time.  

I plan to continue to design and produce my KOWALA WEAR line for events and online sales. For those who are fans of my clothing, please sign up for email updates on the site or follow @kowalawear on social media FB or Instagram.

Thank-you for your continued support throughout the pandemic by ordering online and shopping at the door when we couldn’t open. I’m grateful for all of you that ordered my masks, especially when I was first figuring it all out; that is what kept me going throughout 2020 and 2021.  I enjoyed coming to your homes to deliver packages of clothing, beauty products, and masks when you couldn’t come into the shop, so thanks for giving me purpose. 

The last date to shop in store is Saturday, August 27th. The website will close in September.  Please check shop hours as they will change from week to week.

Again, thank-you for your support of my little green business and I hope to see you soon. 

Mary-Ann Kowala
