We opened our doors as a pop-up on May 4th, 2018 by the name The Authentics Club on the hope we could be a local spot for people to shop for unique fashion items. Starting with a few pairs of shoes and a rack with mostly vintage clothing our journey was just beginning. Our following kept growing and soon we were accepting trades, buying items and even started to consign the bigger items we couldn't afford to buy.
Fast forward 5 months and we have 100's of items ranging from shoes and clothes to accessories and skate decks. We quickly realized the demand for a store like ours in Canada and started building our online consignment website. Here is where people from all over Canada can sell their items fast and safely but more importantly buy in confidence knowing they're always getting 100% authentic items.
We opened our second physical location on July 9th, 2019 in Edmonton, Alberta with a great turn out! After operating for 6 months in this location we wanted to revamp our brand and start focusing more on shoes and clothing and phase out our vintage to cater to a more niche market.
We all know what happened in this month...
The pandemic nearly ended the company but in July of 2021 I linked up with two new partners, Jason and Zero. With a combine 18 year experience in resale we opened Authentics Boutique and grew out of The Authentics Club. The first month started slow but we quickly were becoming a force in the Edmonton streetwear scene again.

Almost 3 years to the date that we were broken into and forced to close our very first location in St.Albert we announced our new permanent location in West Edmonton Mall on the second floor across from OLD NAVY.
Our store is just over 3 years old now and we're starting to do big things in the city, all thanks to the great customers we have. If you have any more questions regarding our story or just any questions in general please feel free to reach out to me (Nate) at email@example.com
