Plenty gives you plenty plus more (Store Review)

We were quite attracted to the Winter Window Display at the Plenty Store on West Broadway.  What caught our interested was the beautiful textured display in the window and the winter poem written on the window in gold. Instead of the usual Christmas display, once again, Plenty chose to have a winter display. In a multicultural world this makes more sense.

Plenty has four stores in Vancouver and one in Victoria and caters to the 18- 30-target market but anyone outside that target market could easily find something special for their wardrobe. The store is on two levels and underwent a makeover a few years ago. The main floor has accessories, boots, handbags and a small selection of shoes one side and on the other side, men’s clothing. Women’s clothing is all upstairs.  It is an overall retail trend to have both men and women’s clothing under one roof. The store has very high ceilings giving it an airy, light feeling.

Men’s clothing was organized mainly by brand. They carry Levi, Penguin, Scotch & Soda, Ben Sherman, Obey and men’s’ canvas backpack with faux leather trip. We liked the Levis Reversible Jacket, Ben Sherman buffalo shirt, the Selected Grandad Cardi and the Scotch & Soda Henley t-shirt.

Women’s clothing consisted of the very reasonably priced House brands, Propaganda, Monk & Lou & Ribbon. They also carried Line and Free People sweaters and a striped coat from Gentle Fawn (on web shop) that reminded us of the Hudson Bay Stripes but updated. Another stunning coat that caught my eye was a military green cotton jacket with a copper brocade shell that turns into two coats in one. They also had lots of eveningwear such as lace peplum tops, black and gold sequin dress and lace dresses.

The owners of Plenty know what they are doing, who their target market is and what is a reasonable price point for that market. No matter what your age, check them out. They also have a web store.
