For those of you not familiar with Shopify, they’re a Canadian startup that helps small businesses and entrepreneurs easily setup their own online stores. You’ll find many of Canada’s largest brands using their platform as well to market their goods and services online. But today I want to focus on smaller Canadian entrepreneurs who are carving out unique niches for themselves on the web.
The Canadian Kite Company
Never thought I would be saying this to my readers, but hey, go fly a kite! Really. It’s a fun and affordable way to enjoy the great outdoors this summer. The Great Canadian Kite Company brands itself as Canada’s first choice for quality kites & kite accessories. They even have a blog about the art of flying kites. A great place to find a unique gift for that special kid in your life!
Low Carb Canada
This site will be of interest to people who follow a low carb diet, whether for weight loss or because they need help controlling their diabetes. The store carries many low carb foods that are sometimes hard to find in traditional grocery stores. They company has retail stores in Toronto, but fortunately they also accept online orders for those outside the GTA.
Fragrance Buy Canada
This online store promises low prices for brand name fragrances. So, are the discounts real. I did some online price comparisons. Turns out they are somewhat cheaper than discount sites like Amazon.ca (for the products I compared), and much cheaper than department stores. So if you’re looking to buy perfume, I would strongly consider consulting this site before parting with your money. You might well save $2o-$30 on your next purchase.
Organic Skin Care
Do you know what chemicals are present in the skin care products you use? With more and more people seeking out organic skin care products, it was just a matter of time before an online store catering to this niche appeared.
This store has hand selected the products their offer at their retail locations. They only partner with brands that share their passion for healthy beauty by creating products that are natural, organic, cruelty-free and made of food grade and wild crafted ingredients.
They continuously seek out the latest healthy skin care, hair care, body care and cosmetics on the market so you can shop with confidence knowing that you are purchasing pure, high quality, result-oriented products.
I hope you enjoyed this small list of retailers who are using Shopify to reach new markets by selling their products online.
