Ed Christie opened the store in 1976 with an approach to fashion retailing that continues today. Carefully selected, high quality menswear and women’s fashions fill the racks and shelves. The array is diverse, catering to the multi-faceted lifestyle of our community. Casual and recreational, business wear and more formal items such as made-to-measure suits are all available.

Lines from across North America and Europe are included in the collections. They combine the familiar and classic with new and unusual. A wide range of accessories, the finishing touches, are an integral part of the store’s offerings. Christie’s continues to expand its new children’s division welcoming a new generation of customers.

The level of service at Christie’s harks back to a time when shoppers received special treatment. Custom fitting, often the same day alterations, gift wrapping and a customer loyalty program are just a few of the extras that are the norm here and for which there are no additional charges.

Son and daughter Michael and Dana are both very active in the daily operations. They and all of the staff members are dedicated to customer service that equals the excellence of the merchandise. Most staff have been with us for several years and make a point of learning customer’s preferences.

As Michael says, “We are going to be here to look after our customers with extraordinary personal service for a long time.”

The attention to detail and pleasing shoppers extends to the building itself. In 1989, it was impeccably restored, resulting in an outstandingly attractive storefront and an interior that encourages relaxing browsing and exploration. The expert staff adds to the welcoming ambience.

Christie’s Clothing has kept pace with changes in fashion and in the community, while retaining the focus on quality, competitive pricing and offering service that surpasses that of many retailers.

An extraordinary shopping experience awaits residents and visitors right here in the heart of historic downtown Collingwood. Welcome to Christie’s Clothing!
