THE CORIANDER story began in 2001 as an adventure in fashion and global flair.
When we opened our first location in Guelph, ON, we were still making our own clothing under the Coriander label in South America and Southeast Asia, selling our line to other stores across North America. Our trips abroad to suppliers afforded us the chance to fill shipping containers with the treasures we found. Our focus remains to fill our stores with merchandise that is both distinctive and beautiful while at the same time supporting makers from around the globe. Travelling widely to find the very best new product for our clients has been one of our mandates from the get go and continues to this day.
In 2014, we opened our first Collingwood, ON location at 83 Hurontario Street. Collingwood’s vibrant, receptive community enabled us to take another leap just five years later when we opened our third store at 78 Hurontario in 2019. We are now Coriander Life and Coriander Style, sister stores directly across the street from each other on the downtown’s attractive main street. Coriander Life has evolved into a fun, quirky, and entertaining gift shop filled with exceptional merchandise guaranteed to make you smile. Coriander Style offers chic easy modern dressing designed to keep you comfortable and contemporary.
Both stores are located in historic buildings brimming with warm character. We love serving both locals and the many travellers who seek out Collingwood as an exciting place to visit.
With great regret, we closed our mothership store in Guelph in the summer of 2020. With an eye to continue serving our community and beyond, we launched an ecommerce site in 2021. While by no means complete, our goal with this site is to offer our very best products for online purchase – a curated collection of our favourite things – from both Style and Life.
You are invited to visit us at either of our locations or our website. We will make your Coriander experience well worth the trip.
