Shopping in Banff is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day or two as there is an outstanding selection of stores which are located in our town.
With three locations in Banff and Lake Louise, Jacques Cartier Clothier features fashions made from Qiviuk - perhaps the finest, softest, warmest and most elegant fibre a person has ever seen. Qiviuk is eight times warmer than sheep’s wool or cashmere resulting in finer, decadently comfortable garments that are light and superbly wearable. These stores also feature other fine clothing made from Vicuma, Guanaco, Heavenly Alpaca and GC Suri.
