Posted by Drake General Store, 3 years, 6 months ago

We’re so excited to announce our latest retail location at Hudson’s Bay Rideau Street in downtown Ottawa. It’s the first outpost outside of Toronto and comes fresh off multiple collaborations with Hudson’s Bay over the last year, including a pop-up-turned-permanent shop in their flagship store on Yonge Street and a World Pride pop-up shop in June 2014.

Here at Drake General Store, we’re firm believers in good meals with even better company. Hosting a dinner for your closest friends + family is something that’s just good for the soul.
