This new comprehensive approach to promoting Indigenous tourism, independent B.C. business owners and the needs of thousands of tourists and locals alike is about staying rooted in the ethics of how and why we do business.
Renowned Tseshaht First Nations artist Connie Watts will guide Indigenous design for the first location at 901 Gordon Street with Western Interior Design Group. This premier location will be at the heart of a new initiative to grow Indigenous culture and tourism in downtown Victoria. Not only that, but it will showcase Indigenous art and teachings, becoming a premier destination for the entire community.
The second location at The Bay Centre will look and feel different than anything people have seen before. This coveted retail location aims to become a must-visit for all Bay Centre visitors by honouring and integrating British Columbia’s spectacular natural beauty while blending it seamlessly into more urban context, delivering a unique retail experience like no other.
On the mainland, Seed & Stone has also received municipal approval for a cannabis store on the waterfront in White Rock, steps away from the pier and West Beach.
Seed & Stone is humbled by the opportunity to work with Songhees Nation and do business on the traditional Lekwungan homelands. Council’s decision to support this business venture has laid a great foundation for future opportunities. “Out of friendship and respect has grown a business partnership that will help support the economic goals of the Songhees Nation,” says Vikram Sachdeva, founder and CEO of Seed & Stone.
