Store Blog

WELCOME BACK!!

First and foremost, we’d like to thank you all for the support, patience, and understanding you have given us while we've been closed. We've missed each and every one of you!! Your support is the reason we are able to re-open the store and continue operating as a business. 

Keeping our workplace, staff, customers and the general public safe is our primary focus. We will be implementing the following controls to protect everyone:

  • Frequent hand washing or hand sanitizing by staff
  • Wearing of a face mask by staff and we highly encourage you to do the same (as of July 7, City of Toronto has made masks or face coverings mandatory)
  • Providing hand sanitizer for visitors to use upon entry and exit
  • Sanitizing door handles, work surfaces, screens, payment machines, cash registers, and equipment after every appointment/customer
  • Steaming of articles of clothing that were tried on
  • Steaming of the change room curtains
  • There will be marked Xs at the checkout and direction arrows throughout the store to encourage social distancing

If you would like to set-up a shopping appointment outside of our new hours, please email info@muddygeorge.com to set up a time to come in. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, including but not limited to fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath we ask that you stay home and self-isolate. 

If you'd prefer to shop from home, our online store remains fully functional, and we continue to ship packages (new lower/faster rates) and provide curbside pickup.

 

New (LOWER! / QUICKER!) Shipping Rates

If there are any positives to come out of the Covid-19 shutdown, it's our new shipping rates for Canada and the US. We've lowered our rates as well as free shipping minimum purchase for purchases within Canada and to the US. Additionally, shipments to the US will get there faster as we are now using UPS (instead of Canada Post/USPS). The new rates are below:

Ontario: As low as $10 and free on orders of $100+
Rest of Canada: As low as $12 and free on orders of $100+
USA: As low as $15 and free on orders of $150+ (UPS)
International: As low as $35 and free on orders of $400+

Shop/COVID-19 Update

While the Ontario Government announced additional workplaces, including street-facing retail, can re-open as of May 19th, we have decided that the best way for us to maintain the safety of our staff, customers and community is to remain closed to the general public until further notice.


During this time we will continue to offer local curb side/in-store pick-ups for orders made on the web store. Pick-up is available most days of the week, usually between 10 AM and 5  PM but other times can be arranged. You can select this option on the ‘shipping method’ section of our checkout page and we will email you to coordinate a pick-up window. Depending on you're address, local drop-off may also be coordinated at no charge (email us to check delivery area). Once we've processed your order we will contact you to arrange a pick-up time. We will also continue to offer free shipping within Canada and to the United States on orders over $75 CAD. 



We will begin offering 1-on-1 in-store appointments for those wishing to shop in person. We ask that you wear a face mask and any other Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) you deem necessary. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, including but not limited to fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath we ask that you stay home and self-isolate.  Please email info@muddygeorge.com to set up a time to come in. If you are unable to come in during the above hours, please contact us and we will arrange a time that works.

Keeping our workplace, staff, customers and the general public safe is our primary focus. We will be implementing the following controls to protect everyone:

  • Frequent hand washing or hand sanitizing by staff
  • Wearing of a face mask by staff
  • Providing hand sanitizer for visitors to use upon entry and exit
  • Sanitizing door handles, work surfaces, screens, payment machines, cash registers, and equipment after every appointment/customer
  • Steaming of articles of clothing that were tried on
  • Steaming of the change room curtains

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support, patronage and understanding, especially during these trying times. We wish everyone good health, strength and safety! We can't wait to have our doors open again, hopefully sooner than later.

Collection Review - KESTIN SS20 - West Highland Ways

Camping and Scotland go hand in hand. The hikes are endless, the scenery is epic and when the weather is good there’s no-where else you’d rather be. For SS20, Kestin has looked at vintage outdoor gear to produce a Scottish camping-inspired collection. Form and function are key with a range that excels in urban to outdoor fashion.

 


The soft seasonal colour palette reflects the natural landscape of Scotland and is made up moss blue, dark indigo, light olive, sand, slate, stone, and accents of mint and cumin.

 


A huge variety of textures are explored with a tactile mix of cloths, ranging from heavy weight mill-washed ripstop 100% cotton, to super high-gauge Japanese taffeta jersey, a newly developed 6.3oz flax/cotton blend sustainable fabric, and washed fine cord.

 


The collection has a mix of styles to work for both city and country pursuits. There are light-weight shirt jackets, shorts and shop coats for days in the city, and windbreakers, tess and trousers for those outdoor days.

 

For many seasons now the Inverness trouser has been a best seller and after many requests a short version has been created. Retaining the great fit, the Inverness short has a low rise crotch, draw cord waist and made from British Brisbane Moss cord and water repellent Italian cloth.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Hi Friends!

The last few days, and I’m sure for the next little bit, has created some new challenges both in life and in business. Our plan is to operate normally and remain open for as long as it’s safe to do so. We are taking some extra steps to ensure the health and safety of our customers, like washing our hands, disinfecting surfaces (especially the door handles) and keeping the store as clean as we can. Rest assured we'll be available to help any and all shoppers and will be shipping all online orders as quickly as we can.

We recognize that not everyone is comfortable coming in or may not be able to visit us. We have and continue to receive new SS20 wears (so much good stuff!!) and want to make it a bit easier for you to shop (and to encourage social distancing) so use code FREESHIP at checkout for FREE SHIPPING within Canada and to the US on orders over $100 CAD.

Now more than ever is the time to support your local independent shops, restaurants and businesses. Keep supporting those around us, connect with us on social media, stop by and say hello, or just give us a wave when you pass by the shop window.

Stay safe, we’re in this together! 

PS a special thank you to all the doctors, nurses, scientists, etc. worldwide who are helping to keep the virus from spreading.
