We're Retiring


The Umbrella Shop is Retiring!

It’s with heavy but excited hearts that we announce the official closing of the Umbrella Shop. While we have loved serving you, Vancouver, and other rainy locales across the world, it’s time to shut our doors and recharge for the next step in life: retirement! You can read about our store closures and process on our blog.

The nice thing about producing quality umbrellas is that although it’s farewell for the Umbrella Shop, it’s also not forever and it certainly isn’t Goodbye. Our designs and love will live on in the rainy streets around the world, but it started with you, Vancouver. Thank you for joining us in our dream and making it a success. Thank you for supporting local businesses and understanding the challenges and beauty behind the finished product. Thank you for giving us the honour of sheltering you from storms, no matter how temporary.

Rain is grace;

Rain is the sky descending to the Earth;

Without rain, there would be no life. –John Updike

 

The Granville Island location is now permanently closed. We thank you for your patronage.

Latest Umbrella Options!

Here at the Umbrella Shop, we pride ourselves on offering Vancouverites, Canadians and the world a variety of umbrella styles and designs to suit anyone’s needs or wants. But we’re excited to announce the launch of our new interchangeable handle umbrellas that allow customers to mix and match to get their very own unique design, with further customization options in various colours and patterns!

 
 

We’ve made the umbrellas nice and small, easy to pack, and simple to operate. The umbrella itself comes in a range of fabric patterns so that men, women and children will all want one of their very own! It’s an easy to open manual style so one quick movement and you’ll be protected from whatever the weather can throw at you, before quickly wrapping it up and tucking it back in your bag. The handles come in three distinct designs; a bamboo-esque straight handle, a classy duck head (for those days you want to channel Mary Poppins) and a comical penguin head for those who want a little hilarity with their rain protection. Whenever the mood strikes, simply unscrew the handle with a few twists of the wrist and your umbrella is easily transformed! These manual umbrellas come in red, forest green, purple, grey white and black, for only $29.95. And if patterns are more your preference, then you can choose from the starlight, garden flowers, purple swirl or midnight roses design for just $34.95. The customizable options are endless!

Other than their unique design, what also makes these umbrellas special is how they came to be. The Umbrella Shop owner, Corry Flader, is a third-generation umbrella designer but this latest line was created in partnership with her son, Matty, making the fourth-generation Flader to keep the business going! This line marks the collaboration between mother and son to come up with yet another high quality product that sets us apart from any competitors and keeps us on the forefront of innovation in the umbrella market.

So come down to one of our three locations, pick out your special umbrella and several more for family and friends. Then switch, swap and exchange
handles to make your own!
