Likkuid Sole brings “urban chic” to our downtown. Jenn and Tamara MacCraken were thrilled to officially open their store on Wednesday, August 20th and everyone was excited to see the newest addition to our BIA! When I asked why they chose to open a shoe store their response was simply, “We love shoes!! What better reason!!”
Tamara and Jenn explained that while they worked in Perth for the last two years, they listened to what people wanted to see in our downtown. It turns out that shoes was the one key element in the downtown that seemed to be missing. They took into consideration wide feet, ladies with bunions, comfort in general and good quality and this determined what brands of shoes that they would carry. You can now find brands such as Cougar, Pikalinos, Cloud, Clarks and Manitibah Muklucks adorning their shelves.
Their clothing is geared toward the 20-50 age demographic and they carry fashions made in Canada, the US and Europe, as well as clothing that is ethically responsible. You will be surprised to hear that their stylish Teeki tights are made from recycled plastic bottles.
The two sisters wanted to follow in the foot steps of our parents and sustain their living with their own company. Tamara is a very outdoors person who did tree planting and firefighting but is also a mother and an artist, while Jenn has managed or been a part of the management team in stores such as HMV, Old Navy, and Lululemon, and also went to school for Interior Design .
All of their combined abilities, plus their retail backgrounds have come together to create another wonderful store that is sure to thrill residents and attract visitors to downtown Perth.
Ladies put this store on your list, and drop in to visit the next time you come to Perth!
