The WOW dreamcoat tavern, which has been in business for 20 years, is known for its red coats and jackets.
“Red is one of the colours that we like, it’s a bit of a throwback to the days of red and white,” said owner Michelle Stowe.
The tavern has been serving up a range of flavours including the red coat, the cream coat, and the gold coat.
The dreamcoat is one item that has made its way into the dreamcoat shop since its establishment in 2012.
“When we started in 2014, we only had two coats, and it took a couple of years for us to expand to three, but now we have more than 200 and that’s pretty amazing,” said Stowe, who has a degree in biology.
She said that the dream coat is a popular item, and has been selling out of coats since its introduction.
“We’re always in demand for the red coats,” she said.
“The cream coat and the cream is what people say is the best in the world.”
Stowe said that she likes to buy one for herself every two weeks.
“I like to have the cream and the red, and we have a lot of different colours in the store.”
The shop has also been able to keep its business afloat as a result of a recent business development.
The WOO is expanding to an eight-room building at the corner of Main Street and Avenue.
Stowe hopes to have a new location in time for the Winter Olympics in February.
“People really want to come and see it,” she explained.
“They want to have fun with the WOO.”
Stow said that when the Woo is in business, it is a great place to get a chilli latte and a cold beer.
“It’s very fun to work in the shop,” she noted.
“You get to work with people that are all different types of people.”
The WSO, a Vancouver based organisation, has been operating in Vancouver since 2008.
“Our mission is to bring people together to celebrate Vancouver’s unique cultures and experiences, and celebrate what makes us different from other cities,” said a statement from the organisation.
“Whether it be our local food or our local art, our passion for sustainability and creating a better, more connected Vancouver is what we focus on.”
Stowell said that one of her favourite aspects of working in the dreamcoats and jackets store is the diversity of the customers.
“My favourite thing about it is how different people come in,” she added.
Everyone’s just so welcoming, everyone’s very welcoming, and there’s lots of people that really love the WSO.”
