Three Wishes Clothing Boutique has returned to Kelowna’s Pandosy retail corridor after a 10-year hiatus.

Owner Pat Currie has two other locations in Penticton and decided to close the store because it was so difficult travelling from Penticton, due to the construction in Summerland and Peachland back in 2007. 

It was her customer’s constant requests for her to re-open in Kelowna and the opportunity to thrive on Pandosy that made her jump at the chance to bring casual, career and special occasion fashion back to Kelowna.

Three Wishes has been run by Pat for 23 years, so go visit her and she was what she has to offer.

The Harvest Classic Hunter/Jumper Show has started and will be running all weekend at the Kelowna Riding Club.
