Meet the owner

Donita Beaulieu, owner of Ginger Laurier, has always loved helping others. She had a career as an emergency nurse for years prior to opening her women’s clothing boutique in April 2001. Even while running both the Calgary and Okotoks locations of Ginger Laurier, she still worked the nursing evening shift until 2013.  “Then I got to follow my dream of running a retail boutique,” she says.

Donita got her first taste of retail in 1981 while selling Birkenstock shoes as a mail order business, advertising in magazines and completing orders without computers. Her customers would mail tracings of their feet for her to match with the available sizes. While she runs her business a little differently now, she brings the same dedication to her brick and mortar store.

The Ginger Laurier Calgary location opened in April 2012, more than a decade after the Okotoks store opened in 2001. Donita says the name Ginger Laurier is essentially her stage name – she chose it to embody the woman she had envisioned to shop in her boutique. “I had to come up with a name that felt like a satiated woman,” she says. She worked with her logo first, deciding between a goddess and a 50s-inspired lady. Today, as they walk in the door, visitors of Ginger Laurier in Calgary pass by a black-and-white framed photograph of a lady standing in front of the Eiffel Tower who Donita feels is "Ginger Laurier" herself.

    I tried to return a pair of defective Birkenstock sandals only to be told it was my problem and to contact Birkenstock in Germany. Terrible way to handle a loyal customer.
