We have a lot of great malls in Ottawa, but sometimes it's great to see what local stores your own city has to offer. It's easy to forget about local stores when we have our favourite stores to shop at already, but these cannot be forgotten.
Most of these stores have an online shop as well, so if you're too lazy to actually go shopping, you're welcome. Support local and check out these 9 clothing stores that will transform your wardrobe!

NRML opened its doors in the ByWard Market almost 20 years ago, and they've been a hit ever since. Their store can be described as a streetwear boutique, and they have everything you would ever need. Their clothing is modern, sophisticated but also with a little edge.
