Get Your Last Minute Holiday Shopping Done with Curb-side Pickup or Shop by Appointment

Although retail stores are still open for your last minute holiday shopping needs, they have had to significantly reduce their in-store capacity, and many of them have made adjustments to accommodate more online and pickup options! While the majority of these retailers have their product available online, sometimes you want to see things in person before you make a commitment, so check out 17th Ave businesses who are offering private shopping, virtual shopping, and shopping by appointment only.

Bamboo Ballroom 

This local favourite offers its expansive selection of clothing and accessories online, as well as for curbside pickup, and they also offer private shopping appointments. Head to their website or send them a direct message on Instagram for more information! 

814 16 Ave SW, bambooballroom.com

Beyond Scarf 

If you can’t make it into Beyond Scarf during their Holiday store hours, you can also shop their selection of cashmere and silk scarves and ponchos online, as well as by appointment. Head to their website for more information. 

815 17 Ave SW #110, beyondscarf.ca


The Rubaiyat’s legendary Christmas collection is a must-see this holiday, and they are currently offering a shopping experience that is by appointment only, so give them a call at 403-228-7192, or email them at info@rubaiyatcalgary.com to book your visit today!

722 17 Ave SW, rubaiyatcalgary.com


You can still visit Arc’Teryx’s 17th Ave store to shop, but they also offer appointments online so you can shop with a virtual advisor, who as one of their educated staff will be able to assist you in finding the exact gear you’re looking for. Find out more here

Curbside Pickup

Most of your favourite local businesses – from food to retail – are now offering some form of curbside pickup for their products. If you’re in a pinch and don’t have enough time to place your order online and wait for delivery, this is another great way to support your local businesses and get the items you want while still keeping your distance! If you’re thinking of a 17th Ave business you would like to support, head to their website or social media to check out their curbside pickup options. 

Online Shopping

I think all of us have done our fair share of online shopping this year, and this increase in e-commerce has been integral in businesses ability to continue operating during the various phases of COVID lockdown. Keep choosing local retailers before bigger corporations – they’ve continued to adapt and give us ways to get our hands on their product in the safest way possible. Check out some of our favourite 17th Ave retailers online shops here!
