Stay Fresh footwear is having a ‘Walk Pop-Up Shop’ at the first Made in Strathcona: Most Walkable Street 2021 event this weekend.
From June 23 to June 25, the premium streetwear consignment retailer is bringing an exhibition of shoes to East Hastings Street including Air Jordans and Adidas Yeezys.
The event marks the first pop-up of the Most Walkable Street 2021 series, created by the Strathcona Business Improvement Association (Strathcona BIA) to help turn East Hastings into a pedestrian destination.
And it gets better.
To celebrate, Stay Fresh will be running a used shoe promotion where you can bring a pair of old sneakers to be recycled or donated and in return you’ll get a $25 credit to use at the pop-up event. The used footwear collected in the shoe drive will be donated to Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre and Covenant House Vancouver
Once you spend $100 or more you’ll be able to use the credit and get money knocked off the total. With brands like Nike, Reebok, New Balance, and more on offer, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.
Vancouver’s Skye Footwear will also be featured at the event so you can try a pair of their seriously soft and lightweight sneakers to see how they fit into your lifestyle.
More than just footwear will be showcased as limited Stay Fresh merchandise will also be on sale, meaning you can snag a t-shirt or two. And you could even win an epic prize as the Fresh Locker Key Master will be featured at the event and it costs just $5 to play.
The Strathcona BIA will be hosting many more pop-up events like this on East Hastings Street until July 16. So you’re invited to go along and discover new surprises in the vibrant community.
You can help be a part of the vision to make East Hastings the most walkable street by 2021 and get a sense of what type of future businesses the neighbourhood is looking for when you attend pop-up shops like Stay Fresh.”
And as an extra incentive to shop if you trade in your shoes you get a $25 credit. Epic.
