In 1987 Barbara Davis set out to WOW the women of Calgary by offering outstanding customer service and a huge selection of new and like-new designer fashions. She got stores and designers to clear all of their samples and overruns through her along with promoting consignment as a wonderful way for women to sell their high end clothing that they can only be seen in once! Not many people understood what “consignment” meant when Barbara started out, so she was a true trailblazer in visioning a business that could provide outstanding service, amazing labels of new and like-new designer trends for a fraction of the original price.
In 1997, Rhonda Davis started Changes Vancouver where she has the same commitment to giving outstanding customer service, along with an amazing selection of new and like-new designer trends for less! Both stores have a jewellery bar that sparkles for every season with designs made by local and Canadian jewellery artists.
Rhonda has been awarded Vancouver’s BEST Consignment Store Award for 15 years, Vancouver’s BEST Women’s Clothing (2011), Vancouver Westside Best Dressed Window (2012). Rhonda has also been nominated for Retailer of the year (2005) and a YWCA Woman of Distinction in Business Award (2005 & 2010).
Both Stores aim to make the world a more shiny, stylish, empowered, and healthier place. Rhonda & Barbara donate generously through their businesses and raise money for many charities through their numerous annual events, including the two, seasonal, gala fashion shows.
We are dedicated to rocking the re-sale world, and to proving that businesses can create a win-win for the earth, our community, customers, staff, and ourselves.
