Port Credit is the vibrant lakeside community where you can walk, bike, drive, or transit down to the ultimate shopping destination on the main street. Along with breathtaking Lake Ontario views and a number of fine restaurants, cafes, cultural and entertainment venues, Port Credit also connects residents with unique shops and services. There is no better backdrop for the thriving shopping experience here in Port Credit than the picturesque surroundings and bustling charm of the village that leaves residents feeling rejuvenated with every new exploration. And we’ve got ten unique shops you’ll love.
Archtop Vinyl Shop
Named after the beloved Archtop guitar, Archtop connects the charming waterside Port Credit community with new and used vinyl records for sale with freshly roasted coffee and delicious cafe fare to go along with it.
Originally a music store and cafe located in Caledon, Ontario, Archtop expanded to Port Credit, where residents can grab not just a coffee but also lunch and dessert. From freshly made cakes, cheesecakes, and pastries, to unique ice cream, there is no better place to indulge in your favorite treats just before visiting the waterfront park or marina. It’s no wonder the cafe has earned the charming reputation for being the place where strangers become friends.
But the cafe is only half the fun. The real music adventure happens at The Vinyl Shop, located on the lower level, where thousands of vinyl gems, both new and old, await your every musical inclination. Archtop invites you to “sip and flip” among tens of thousands of new and used records, turntables, speakers, and accessories along with the best espresso-based drinks around.
LANGsura is an online boutique where Port Credit residents can shop beautifully curated and affordable products with free delivery nationwide. Founder Joyce Chan-Varvodic, who started the company in her basement in 2012, handpicks seasonal, trendy, and effortless styles from around the world to bring you labels from Korea, Los Angeles, New York, and Australia.
The name LANGsura comes from the Cantonese word for beautiful/pretty - LANG - and the Croatian word for girl - sura. Chan-Varvodic came up with the name to signify the harmonious blend of her Chinese heritage and deep affection for her family including her Croatian husband and their beautiful daughter.
Joyce created her brand with dreams of removing her own frustrations from the international online shopping experience including mounting fees, limited access to products, and long delivery waits. A gap in the Canadian online boutique market carved out a space for the launch of her own company, destined to accomplish exactly what she dreamed, where hidden duty and delivery fees and long wait times never get in the way of finding unique, high-quality, and affordable products, based right here in Canada.
