Shop the Exchange

There’s a particular spirit to the way things are done in the Exchange District.

Shop owners like to share in their wins, lift each other up – and combine forces to build up the overall neighbourhood experience. Over the next few months, we’ll be featuring seven great Exchange District businesses and giving you a glimpse into the way things are done here— watch for our full page feature in the Winnipeg Free Press, starting today and running once a month.

This month, we’re introducing our participating businesses, and giving you a hand with your list.

If you’ve always wanted to be known as a thoughtful gift-giver, but need a little help to back it up, this group is taking the guesswork out for you this holiday season – giving you plenty of inspiration to get what you need.

Whether it’s gifts for mom, dad, your romantic partner, roommate, that colleague you barely know or your grandmother-in-law, each shop has the bestsellers and unique recommendations for anyone on your shopping list.

And while the joy of giving (with a little less brain-wracking) is a gift in itself, the bonus is in getting to enjoy your entire shopping experience – stopping for a latté, lunch or libations at one of the dozens of destination coffee shops, restaurants and bars as you power through your list.

You’ll never miss nailing that perfect gift for your neighbour Jane again – and that’s cause to celebrate. Check our new Shop the Exchange page for this month’s gifting highlights.
