Can you believe it’s been 20 years? On April 1, 1995 we opened the doors to MacDermott’s for the very first time. Wayne and Jay moved here from Victoria in 1994 with the dream of opening their own men’s wear store. That dream became a reality and 20 years later they have never looked back.
Over the 20 years the store has expanded, under gone several renovations and modernized to keep on top of the latest fashions and trends. Did you know that MacDermott’s once sold cigars and had a shoe shine station? Many didn’t think Kelowna was ready for brand names like Hugo Boss and Versace, but the stylish men here proved them wrong.
Thank you Kelowna for supporting our business and embracing men’s fashion.
