DBIA Featured Post: Charlotte's Web


Downtown Peterborough has a great fashion sense and district all on its own. Clothing stores have flourished in the area and cloth many of the adults you’ll see daily. What isn’t seen as much though are clothing stores geared towards the youngest generation specifically. That’s where Charlotte’s Web, located at 180 Charlotte St, comes in to

Located centrally on Charlotte St between George and Aylmer, Charlotte’s Web has been offering junior trend setters top name brands since it opened its doors in 1994. The store was originally located a few doors down from its current location for its first three years until it moved to its current permanent home next to Cottage Toys.

Locally owned and operated by Monique Cantin, the store offers clothes for kids from newborn age to size 18 (which is the size of many older elementary school students).

Covering all four seasons with style, the store offers top name brands such as Columbia, North Face, Roxy, Mexx, Quicksilver and more which can be hard to find in smaller sizes. Monique says that shoppers are often amazed at what cool clothing lines they can find in the shop that aren’t available elsewhere in town, especially in smaller sizes.

The shop is smartly set up with newer clothing in the front and a large clearance section in the back featuring out-of-season articles. You’ll find everything from snow suits, winter boots, shirts and pants, various shoes and sandals, to pajama's, swimwear, and sunhats in the store at various times of the year. Monique is always looking to add new collections and brands that she offers so her customers won’t be disappointed!

Knowing that customer service is essential, the store is very kid friendly because Monique knows who is going to be there—kids! So parents shopping in the store can be at ease if they have children with them knowing the store has a fun play area set up for the accompanying kids to enjoy while shopping takes place.

Monique and her staff have been happily apart of downtown now for almost 20 years and have taken part in numerous charitable events such as raising food for kids, offering donations, and also assisting in local clothing drives.

If your kids are in the market for a new wardrobe or something simple to finish off a look, they invite you to come down to the store and see what they have to offer. Chances are they’ll have exactly what you’re looking for!
