Thousands of businesses have planted their roots in historic Strathcona. Over 850 members populate the area, making it one of the most stable and celebrated Vancouver communities, where independent businesses come to thrive.
Big names like Aritzia and Herschel Supply Co. share their headquarters with local businesses like JJ Bean and Endeavor Snowboards, who design vibrantly patterned boards and perform test runs on Grouse Mountain. Hootsuite got its start here too - whilst culinary hotspots Yolk's Restaurant and Commissary and Ask for Luigi are popping up everywhere. And among all these start-ups and fresh ventures, there's a rich history of commercial endeavors dating back to the mid-1800s.
