About Us

Founded in 2004, The Latest Scoop is a Vancouver-based company that began with only short-term, temporary pop-up shops. We area lifestyle concept store, meaning our buyers travel the world—LosAngeles, New York, Paris, Toronto—to curate a unique mix of product: fashion, furniture, home decor, accessories, footwear, stationary and gift. Our buying is not based on brands, but instead, on what we believe to be beautiful, affordable and desirable. We have permanent locations in Vancouver and Toronto - with future plans to keep growing and expanding!

Our Stores

Our stores are beautiful, textural, layered and dimensional and represent a truly unique lifestyle shopping experience. We maintain our 'pop-up' culture roots by landing new arrivals every single week, ranging from fashion, footwear, home decor and more. With an ever-changing mix of new product, outstanding customer service and inspiring visuals, we love inspiring our customers every time they walk through our doors.
