Retailer Still Life reaffirms downtown love

A move to the sunny side of the street is more than an expansion of Victoria clothing retailer Still Life. The owner says it’s an endorsement of the downtown as a retail district.

Matt and Kim Jensen have relocated the original Still Life for Him store to 560 Johnson St., from its old digs at 551 Johnson St., where it started 30 years ago. The new store, which is larger and literally on the sunny side of LoJo is two doors down from Still Life for Her.

“This is where we want to be,” said Matt Jensen, who said they had been approached about the possibility of locating to Uptown shopping centre in Saanich. “Uptown is just not us. It’s nice and they’ve done a great job with it. But this is us.”

Still Life for Him manager Jordan Stout added the commitment to downtown is about making a stand for the downtown
