An Update on WIGG’s March 31 Closure

Dear fashion lovers,

as we announced a few months ago, WIGG will be closing its doors on March 31, 2023. After that date, the brick and mortar store will no longer be open to shoppers. 

We have loved operating this passion project over the past 12 years and we thank you for all of your support, each of you wonderful fashion lovers and especially our incredible volunteers!

But we have some good news! WIGG isn’t quite disappearing into the ether after all!

We will still be closing the doors to our brick and mortar shop in downtown Galt on March 31. However, we will be keeping our online store,, going for at least another year and we will continue selling off our inventory.

But there’s more! 

Like many of you, we’ve been dreading the day WIGG closes forever. It’s been a lot of fun searching for women-led and Canadian brands we think you’ll love, building long-lasting relationships with shoppers, suppliers and volunteers alike and, of course, hosting days with our favourite style icon, Lynn Spence. 

That’s why we can’t just let all of this go. After much consideration, we have decided to keep this beautiful social enterprise alive in a smaller, different way. 

We’ve begun discussions with some of your favourite brands to hold pop-up shops! These pop-ups will take place twice a year – one in the spring and one in the fall at the same location WIGG is currently located, over the course of a weekend. They will feature capsule collections of the latest styles from a curated selection of brands. In advance of these pop-ups, we will give you sneak peaks of incoming inventory and advance notice of when exactly these pop-ups will be taking place. 

We’re excited to have found this opportunity to keep WIGG and the gorgeous community around it alive and we hope you are, too! Make sure you’re tuned into our social media channels (Instagram @ wigg_ywcacambridge and Facebook @ WomensInternationalGiftandGallery) and are subscribed to our mailing list so you’re among the first to hear about when the pop-ups will be happening. If you aren’t subscribed to our mailing list, you can visit and scroll down to the bottom of the homepage where you can sign up.

In the meantime, don’t forget we’re having the biggest sale we’ve ever had! Get up to 80% off in store and online at!
