STOCKIST FEATURE: STOMPING GROUND

MEET THE MUTTONHEAD STOCKISTS
Stomping Ground

 

For those who don’t reside in Toronto where our two brick and mortar locations stand, there are many other ways to get your hands on some Muttonhead gear. We at Muttonhead have a pretty stacked list of stockists to which we lend curated collections to display and sell alongside brands who share in similar lifestyle and aesthetic. We figured you might like to take a better look at which stores proudly carry Muttonhead, so if you ever find yourself amongst the towns or even Countries they happen to be in, you can stop by for a closer look.

To kick off this “Retail Feature” addition to our blog, we would like to introduce our second feature, Ottawa based lifestyle boutique Stomping Ground. They sprung onto the scene late 2016 with their minimalistic and clean cut vibe, where locals can find a wide variety of apparel and footwear brands as well as accessories and grooming care for men. Check out what they had to say about joining our accomplished list of stockists.

 

Q

WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO MUTTONHEAD, AND WHY DID YOU PURSUE BECOMING A STOCKIST?

A

We appreciate timeless, quality made goods and as a Canadian independent boutique we love supporting Canadian-made brands. We were also attracted to Muttonhead for its ethical, sweatshop free manufacturing.

 



Q

STAFF AT YOUR SHOP: FAMILY, FRIENDS, ONE MAN SHOW? HOW DOES YOUR TEAM WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE A WELCOMING AND INTERACTIVE STOREFRONT FOR YOUR CUSTOMER BASE?

 A

At the risk of using the ever-popular cliché, we are definitely a family at Stomping Ground. Our team while small was built with friends who are passionate about street-wear culture and enjoy sharing that culture within our community.  We want our customers to feel like they are among friends when they visit us, so whether it's helping you find a new addition to your wardrobe or just chatting over a complimentary espresso, we strive to leave our patrons with a warm and memorable experience.

 


 

Q

WHO IS YOUR CUSTOMER, AND HOW DO YOU LIKE TO CONNECT WITH THEM / KEEP THEM IN THE LOOP REGARDING NEW ARRIVALS?

 A

Our customer base is quite diverse. With a heavy emphasis on timeless, heritage brands, we have regular customers from age 16 to 60. What they share is an appreciation for quality goods that stand the test of time. We use a variety of methods to keep them in the informed on what is happening in the shop including social media, newsletters and personal e-mails.

 

 

Q

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE ATMOSPHERE OF YOUR STORE? IS IT A COZY SPACE, OR IS IT A MINIMALISTS DREAM? DESCRIBE THE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN WHICH YOUR SHOP IS LOCATED. DOES IT HAVE A FAMILY FEEL, OR IS IT YOUNG AND TRENDY?

 A

Our goal was to create a modern and minimalist space that was still warm and inviting. Straight lines and sharp edges are met with warm lighting, bamboo flooring and ample plant life. Located in the vibrant Glebe neighbourhood of downtown Ottawa, the boutique is surrounded by a mix of turn of the century family homes, new condominium developments and large base of independent businesses. The main strip is known for its diverse mix of independent businesses which includes; restaurants, boutiques and local grocers.   

 


 

Q

DO YOU PRIMARILY CARRY LOCAL PRODUCTS? IF SO, WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO YOU? WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE STYLE & COLOUR WAY FROM THE MUTTONHEAD SS17 COLLECTION AND WHICH PIECES ARE YOUR STRONGEST SELLERS?

 A

We carry a mix of local and international product. Being a home-grown, independent business, it is important for us to showcase and support local entrepreneurs when possible.  Our customers appreciate the notion of supporting local business and re-investing within their community.


 

 

Q

IF YOU HAD TO PICK A MUTTONHEAD OUTFIT FOR A CAMPING TRIP WHICH PIECES WOULD BE IN YOUR PACK?

 A

I always prepare for the worst when camping, so if there is even a slight chance of rain, I would definitely want the waterproof 5-panel, Waterproof Rain Camping hoodie and 3 Way Pant.
