Queen St West is home to some of the most unique and chic boutiques in Toronto. If you take a stroll down Queen, you'll find everything from home furniture to footwear, you are guaranteed to find some never before seen items. It is easy to see why Vogue Magazine named it one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world.
Though filled with so many treasures, our shopping district often gets over shadowed by the nearby malls and big box stores. Now that summer's in full swing, we want to remind and encourage you to walk down Queen West and take a look at what the local shops have to offer!

One of the greatest things about shopping local is that you're able to support businesses and the area they operate in. Although all businesses respond to their customers, your values and desires are much more influential to your local community businesses than the large big box stores. You can expect to be offered exceptional customer service where staff will be looking to genuinely make a connection and help. You won't have to wonder if your sales associate it ever going to come back with the item you need. At heel boy, we often develop regular visitors who become far more than just customers, popping by sometimes just to say hi and catch up.
The unique character of your local community is defined in large part by the businesses that reside there which plays a big factor in your overall satisfaction. We do our best at Heel Boy to try and make your shopping experience as seamless and personalized as possible. We offer services like in-store pick-ups, ordering out-of-stock sizes, and store-to-store transfers, making it easy for you to pop in at your convenience. One step at a time, we are growing Canadian home grown businesses.
