  1. Exciting News – We’re Growing!

    February 3, 2015 by michaelpenneystyle

    Well, we’re at it again!  

    As many of you know, Penney & Co began nearly 3 years ago in a tiny spot on Brock Street in Historic Downtown Whitby.  After 6 months, we’d outgrown our space and moved to Mary Street.  A while later, when our Mary Street location was feeling cramped, we opened Sweet Violet and Pineapple Street back in downtown proper to house our bedding, children’s items and accessories.

    Along the way we’ve transformed some local Whitby eyesores into something special.  We’ve been part of a movement that’s changing our Historic Downtown and encouraging people to shop local and independent when possible.

    Now, as I said, we’re back at it.

    This next chapter in Penney & Company’s history is bound to be the most thrilling yet!  We’re returning to the streets of Historic Downtown Whitby proper, as I always intended.  We’ve finally found a larger space right at the four corners (Brock and Dundas) that actually has parking in the rear!  Work has already begun on the space and soon we’ll be brightening up this old block and hopefully continuing the transformation of our downtown.

    In case you didn’t know, Mint Floral has already signed on to transform the former Sinful Inflictions tattoo parlour pictured above.  Yes, with a whole lot of work, sacrifice and community support, we’ll turn this area around!  And we’re also lucky to be near Downtown stalwarts Lafontaine.

    The new space may look small from the outside but in fact its quite large.  So large that we have room to fit both Penney & Company and Pineapple Street in one location!  We hope this will be an exciting change for our shoppers and we’re thrilled to be bringing all that Penney & Company has to offer to Downtown Whitby!

    We will be moving Pineapple Street from it’s current location at 125 Brock Street South to our new Dundas Street store so that means this space will soon be available.  If you or anyone you know is itching for the chance to join the transformation of Downtown Whitby and is looking for a location, please don’t hesitate to contact me at michaelpenney8@gmail.com for more information.  It’s a large open space with exposed brick and lots of potential.

    Here’s to an exciting new chapter for Penney & Company, Pineapple Street and Downtown Whitby!
