Uniquely Petra


As a small boutique with a highly curated selection, we have to work a bit harder than our neighbours at Holt’s. One way we do that is with our personal shopping services, where you can work with someone on our team to tailor an entire wardrobe for you.




Here’s how it works:

STEP 1 — THE CHITCHAT
We’ll begin with a conversation. We’ll ask you to describe your routine to us. Do you work? If so, where? And do you deal with people on a regular basis? Do you sit in boardrooms? Do you make client visits?

And what do your evenings and weekends look like? Do you regularly attend functions? Do you host a lot of parties? Do you like to be outside in the winter? And what do your summer plans usually look like?

From there, we’ll get a sense of what you need in your closet. Then we’ll move on.

STEP 2 — THE WALKTHROUGH
We’ll spend time in the store with you while you browse around and select pieces you like so we can get a sense of your personal style.

As you pick, we’ll ask you why. We may even grab something similar and ask you to compare. Don’t worry, it won’t take us long to figure it out. We’ve been doing this for over 25 years.

STEP 3 — THE PARLOUR
We’ll invite you into the sitting area in the back of the store for an espresso while we pull out a few pieces based on your needs and your style.

We’ll pick out both multipurpose and once-a-year pieces. We’ll tell you about the designers we chose for you and why we chose them. We’ll put full outfits together for you so you don’t have to think when you get home. And we’ll accessorize for you from the selection at the front of the store.

STEP 4 — THE SHOES
No, we don’t sell shoes here. But Ron White is next door and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better selection in the city. We share so many customers, they know what we’re all about and we know they get it.

Up for some personal shopping? Swing by to book a time or give us a call at 416.922.5922. And if regular business hours don’t work for you, we can always book a private visit.
