Judith Bond (L) and Susan Austin prepare a
clothing display at Baxter's Row Fashion
The brilliant colours
of fall and warm, cozy sweaters are what you'll find at Baxter's Row
Fashion in downtown Kincardine.
Owned and operated by Susan Austin, the business focuses on casual
clothing for women, as well as novelty items, evening and formal wear,
accessories and jewellery.
"We like the exclusivity for formal wear," says Austin. "If you've
purchased a special dress for an event, you should be the only one
Baxter's carries a variety of clothing lines, with the emphasis on
Canadian designers, such as Frank Lyman. Also available are Group JS
Boutique dresses and formal wear, Fresh FX fancy tops and pants, Martoni
cashmere coats which are made in Canada, and Ellabee, a casual coat line
out of Montreal.
The fall colours feature brilliant purple and fuschia, and cosy
sweaters, vests and blouses are the order of the day. Check out the wide
array of belts and purses, and the vast assortment of jewellery much of
which is made by local artists.
Walk into Baxter's Lakeview Boutique and you'll find beautiful cruise
wear for that special trip to a tropical clime.
Right now, the store has a summer clearance sale, offering up to 50%
off, and if you purchase two or more items, you save the tax. And
remember to check out Baxter's famous Bargain Basement where clothing is
up to 75% off, and no tax if you purchase two or more items.
The store also offers a "Frequent Buyer" program. You collect points on
the purchase of each regularly-priced item and once you reach $500, you
receive a $50 gift certificate toward your next purchase.
"Tourists enjoy coming in here because we have such a unique store,"
says Austin. "We provide excellent quality clothing at reasonable
prices, and good service." She credits the top-notch customer service to
her staff which includes Judith Bond, Jane Willich, Darlene Clifford and
student Kerri Adams.
Formerly owned by Bev Spence, the store was named after Baxter Road in
the Barbados where Spence enjoyed shopping.
"It's a good name and we have good clientele, so we kept it," says
Austin. "But we've created our own style to jazz things up. When I go to
the fashion show in Toronto, in the spring and fall, I check out the
Canadian designers and make my selections from certain lines."
So, check out the beautiful and unique clothing, available at Baxter's
Row Fashion at 740 Queen St., Kincardine. Open Monday to Wednesday, 9:30
a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Thursday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday,
noon to 4 p.m.
