The 3 best locally-owned retailers to start your holiday shopping at

As we head into the most festive month of the year, our minds are fixated on checking items off our long list of gifts for family and friends.

Some people are easy to shop for because they know exactly what they want. However many of us have at least one person who we love dearly but is incredibly hard to shop for.

If you’re still searching for the perfect gifts to give this season, we’re here for you. These are the small retailers that Kamloops voted as the best in town, brought to you by Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union.

Bronze - Jardine's Domaine

This is the Kamloops go-to for elegant home products and fashion alike.

Anything but ordinary, this long-time local favourite offers the most stunning items you can’t find in town. Jardine’s Domaine takes great pride in providing an extensive array of carefully chosen unique brands and collections that reflect new trends and styles, along with the classics.

And if you still can’t figure out what you want, the staff have an exceptional way of picking out the perfect item – even if it’s as a gift.

Between the selections of exquisite jewellery, stunning footwear, gorgeous jackets and a variety of household items like linens, vases and bathroom accessories, there is something for everyone.

Our bronze medal gem can be found in the heart of downtown at 245 Victoria St.

Silver - Real Deals on Home Decor

If you’re looking for a shopping experience like no other, plug Real Deals on Home Decor into your maps app and head over.

Real Deals is your premier destination for home decor and women’s fashions with budget-friendly prices that mean you won’t have to choose between two more expensive items – you can get them both.

The funky warehouse setting will take you on an adventure through an eclectic world of home decor, unique furniture and ladies' boutique clothing. Seriously, you won’t find items like this anywhere else, so it’s easy to spend a couple of hours here browsing their incredible collection.

If you’re ready to find your perfect present, head over to Real Deals on Home Decor at 1514 Lorne St E.

Gold - Far + Wide

Far + Wide is an appropriate name for our gold medal winner. Between beautiful home decor, accessories, candles, jewellery and bath and beauty products from over one hundred small brands – including local producers – no matter who you’re shopping for you will find what you need and be supporting an incredible local business too.

The passionate and friendly staff are already happy to help you find the perfect gift for those important people in your life. Far + Wide was built on the idea of treating someone you love, or yourself, after all!

Inside the store, you will notice there is ample space to move around, so it’s completely wheelchair accessible. Everyone is free to get lost in the assortment of lovely local goodies while they shop at this Kamloops favourite.

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners! If you would like to see the rest of the winners, click here!
