Teo Giovanni shows off a cake that features an old photo of her from when she opened her clothing shop

Streetclothes celebrates its 30th year in Nelson

Teo Giovanni started the clothing shop upstairs in the Nelson Trading Company building in 1982 and has expanded the store twice since.

Teo Giovanni was all smiles on Saturday as she celebrated the 30th anniversary of her Baker Street shop, Streetclothes Named Desire.

“I’d like to thank all my customers new and old for shopping here and supporting local business,” Giovanni said.

To celebrate the anniversary, Streetclothes held a 30 per cent off sale and gave out door prizes throughout the day. One shopper also won a $500 gift certificate for the store.

Giovanni has owned the store since the beginning. During the celebrating, The Bridge radio station surprised Giovanni with a birthday cake featuring an old photo of her from when she first opened the store.

“There are lots of shops in Nelson that have been around longer than Streetclothes, but I don’t know if there’s many this old that still have their original owner,” Giovanni said.

Streetclothes opened in 1982 as a small shop upstairs in the Nelson Trading Company, and not long after moved to a larger space downstairs in the same building. Six years ago, the clothing store moved to its current location at the corner of Baker and Ward Streets.
