Any woman who leaves Avenue, a women’s clothing store in Invermere, B.C., with a purchase that she’s not entirely happy with likely didn’t consult with store owners Lisa Schulz and France Andestad. These sisters and their trusted staff are passionate about helping women of all shapes and sizes to feel beautiful in their new clothes, and Andestad even offers private consultations and after-hours shopping. Avenue, which stocks exciting, reasonably priced modern clothes for modern women, has just celebrated its first anniversary under the sisters’ ownership. Its clients hail from Alberta as well as the Columbia Valley.
