Love Letters for the community

Leave a little love for your community. We’ve collaborated with Vancouver-based artist Leah Day to transform our twin peaks into a way for everyone to come together and celebrate Pride. Stop by the store to see the artwork and pin a personalized note on the installation to spread some love. The installation will be going on a cross-country tour.
