You want it? Thanks to this Parksville boutique, you’ve got it!

This local team has the service and selection the community loves

When the people of Parksville talk, Sandy Herle listens!

What started in 1991 as a lingerie store has expanded over the years to also include collections of women’s clothing, footwear and accessories, once Sandy heard locals weren’t finding enough options close to home.

“I’d hear customer challenges that Parksville was lacking in selection of clothing and footwear to purchase locally, so I felt I should offer these items so I could help meet that need,” says the owner of Close To You Fashion and Lingerie. “Plus, as a shoe fanatic and someone you’ll never catch wearing a pair of flats, it didn’t take much convincing,” she jokes.

Since then, the boutique has continued to expand as their community and clients need it to!

Today, the array of brands are a direct reflection of their customers’ tastes and preferences – in fact, they’ve made selections based solely off of a shopper’s request. How’s that for listening to your wants and needs!

The shop’s extensive lingerie department has allowed the friendly staff to become bra experts, carrying band sizes from 30 to 46 and cup sizes from A to K. A proper bra fitting will help ensure you get the best bra for you and the clothing you want to wear, and they’re also certified prosthesis fitters.

“Twenty years ago I saw firsthand with my clients that there was a real increase in women having surgery, specifically mastectomies. We’ve taken courses to become certified prothesis fitters and carry bras specifically designed for these amazing individuals,” she explains.

It’s proven to be an incredibly rewarding experience that’s allowed Sandy and her team to meet some truly inspiring women.

If you’re ready to browse a wonderful selection of lingerie, women’s clothing, footwear and accessories a trip to Close To You Ladies Fashion & Lingerie is in order!

And while the exceptional selection and service has made the shop popular among locals, they’re thrilled to welcome customers from much farther afield. They’ve even seen different generations stop by, from grandmothers bringing granddaughters for their first bra, to mothers and daughters seeking outfits for that special occasion. It’s helped Sandy to really develop her relationships, allowing her to continue to meet the wants and needs of her community.

Open from Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 12 to 4 p.m, it’s time for you to stop by and check out their spoils!

You can browse their inventory online, or head to their store in-person to shop their collections. You can also head to their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay up-to-date on all the latest happenings!
