[EDIT] + ACC presents... This feature tells the story of a boy who left his home city in Atlantic Canada, before realising that returning home to Atlantic Canada where people support local businesses, was his best chance of success. It all started though with a 16-year-old Harrison Teed, working at a skateboarding lifestyle shop in Fredericton with a dream to someday open a store of his own. “Being in that industry day in and day out, I found my passion. That was my introduction to the idea of opening my own store,” he tells [EDIT]. “I love Saint John. It had to be there." Business partner Matt Shields, who helped bring the business to the next level, shares this vision: “The city is just inherently beautiful. A lot of the buildings provide a really unique and traditional backdrop for new and fun businesses. In some of our collections we’ve designed, I’ve found it interesting the disconnect between generations. We’ve implemented it in designs like last spring with some floral imagery … contrasted with some stark minimal and modern text. It explored this difference between the generations and bringing them together.” His clear, creative mind has paid off: you can see their collections, on people of all ages as you walk throughout the city."
