The WEM location is their second Canadian location (the other in Toronto and one is on its way for Montreal) and is owned Louise Dirks, who also operates Edmonton's Gravitypope and Campers locations.

The store held a media preview ahead of the grand opening where local bloggers got a tour of the store and a low-down on the products.
I didn't know a lot about the brand, so I was happy to learn quite a bit: like how the company likes to open new stores in April because April 1, 1960 was the day the iconic 1460 boots rolled off the assembly line. This one (obviously) did not.
Some of my favourite shoes include:
|These almost came home with me. Alas, they did not have my size!|
The staff and management at Dr. Martens were very friendly and helpful, and after a tour and sneak peak at upcoming collections, we were treated to drinks, snacks (helloooo raspberry sorbet) and swag bags, including a free pair of any Docs we want. Thank you!!
