Canadian-centric womenswear shop Pho Pa closes

Pho Pa, the women’s boutique that focused on Canadian-designed clothing and jewellery, has closed its doors after seven years on Queen West, and several more in Kensington Market before that. Local brand supporters who will miss Alexia Lewis’s shop can take some comfort in knowing that at least a few other stores in the area also stock Canadian designers.
