Meet the owner

Main Street is practically synonymous with hip in Vancouver, but in the early 1990s, that wasn’t so. At the time, the stretch between King Edward and 20th Avenue was a mix of suspicious massage parlours, vacant properties and Chinese-owned hair salons. But one person’s empty storefront is another’s retail opportunity.

In 1993, a group of five friends found a store window they loved and secured the space. Inside, the women opened a consignment store offering gently used clothing and accessories, and vintage and flea market finds; they called it Front & Company. The original consignors were “people who went out of town often and brought things in that weren’t available in Vancouver” says manager Kat Caparas.

Over the past two decades, Front & Company has nurtured a devoted roster of customers and over 5,000 consignors. Today, shoppers can find designer handbags and off-the-runway styles mixed in with vintage sweaters and classic wool coats. Everyone who visits has a unique style, and Kat is confident there’s something for each customer.
