I’ve been shopping at Jacob since I was in grade 9. They have always been great for basic and affordable wardrobe staples and lots of really special pieces too. The company has had its share of ups and downs over the years and each time, seem to keep themselves afloat.
For those of you who don’t know, Jacob Inc. filed for bankruptcy in the spring and since then, have been closing stores across Canada. Recently, I read that they were granted extended creditor protection, which could allow them to relaunch and keep some of their stores open. Fingers crossed! If they can make a come back, it would be fantastic. I must own 100’s of things from this store from over the years. It would truly be the end of a clothing era for me 😦
If you’re looking for cardigans, pencil skirts, cute summer dresses, or a cozy fall sweater, head over to the Bloor Street location ASAP. The bottom floor is full of older stock and off-season items. I saw a box of belts the last time I was there for $5!
This is one of my favourite Jacob dresses. I have it in two other colours, but the navy is by far the most versatile and easy to style. I wear it in the winter, spring, summer and fall. Tights, boots and a blazer in the winter and heels in the summer time.
Happy shopping and Happy Friday!
