Here’s yet another reason to shop local. New businesses are popping up throughout downtown Penticton, including those offering a range of services, specialty retailers and cute shops that you’ll certainly want to explore.
Here’s a list of some of the latest additions on the block – plus a few coming soon!
Fun new shops
Fig + Lily (416 Main Street)
They call it a “simple lifestyle store,” but it’s so much more. Think high quality vintage clothing, adorable antique items and quirky collectables. You’ll find unique items that look good on shelves and on your body. The owners say they value how each item has had a previous life, so by shopping here, you’re not only being environmentally friendly, you’re buying a piece of history. Check out their website and follow their Facebook and Instagram pages.
Newfound Treasures Boutique (246 Main Street)
Billed as an “amusement park of treasures,” you can shop for unique and hand-picked antique furniture, home décor, clothing, luggage and collectibles. Check out their website and follow their Facebook page for info.
Penticton Souvenirs, Cards and Gifts (310 Main Street)
This is a perfect spot to pick up gifts or that special something. Spend a little time exploring the displays – and you won’t want to leave empty handed. Visit their website for hours of operation.

New cafés and restaurants

The scoop on Tickleberry’s Downtown (Main & Front Street)
In just a couple of months, Tickleberry’s will be opening its first downtown location. They’re taking over the prime space where Starbucks used to sit opposite City Hall. This new hub will feature 32 ice creams and a full coffee shop with some grab-and-go food options. They’ll also carry some gift items from their Okanagan Falls location. What a treat!
