SHOP | Unique treasures at one-of-a-kind boutique shops, only in Stratford

Do you sometimes get tired of seeing the same thing over and over? What if we told you there was a place full of unique treasures you can’t find anywhere else? Stratford shopping elevates your shopping experience. Check out our fashion stores for every style and esthetic, gift shops with lovable knick-knacks and funny gifts, art and cultural treasures, homeware and culinary supplies to spruce up your home, and so much more – shop year-round for holiday gift-giving. As you wander the streets you must pop into the shops that make Stratford unique.

Artists and artisans unveil new creations in their studios. And the theatre gift shops offer great prices memories of your visit. We thrive on creativity and many of our shops are a magazine stylist’s dream – from the funky to the one-of-a-kind – from that mid-19th century chandelier to the latest in shoes, hats and bags.

You will want to pause quite a few times for a refreshing latte on a flower-laden patio, a snack made with organic meats, salads or cheeses brought in that day from Perth County farms minutes away or to sample a cool pint made-in-Stratford. Our self-guided trails will also give you a first-hand look at our shops! Make sure to bring a shopping bag to take home unique foods – from the oodles of hand-made chocolates (we have three outstanding shops within one square block) to organic breads to Amish pies, preserves and dairy products from your roaming through our foodie haven.

It’s okay to cave in to your shopaholic desires once in a while, so let Stratford be the place where you indulge. For a list of downtown shops and boutiques, pop by Downtown Stratford BIA’s listing page.
