The concept for the Genesis Fashion Beauty Boutique came 28 years ago by pooling three women’s talents – hair, esthetics, and accessories. Today, you can still find one of the original owners, Anna Harrison, in-store with a smile on her face. Anna has “always worked in the downtown core” and “absolutely love[s] it”. And it’s not difficult to tell that she loves what she does! The delightful Genesis staff continuously contributes to the friendly and vibrant atmosphere of Downtown Kamloops. As originally planned, Genesis still offers hair care, esthetics, and apparel (including footwear and accessories).
When asked why customers come to Genesis, Anna told us that “our customers are our family”. They aim to create relationships with their customers and offer exclusive products that “not everyone in town is going to carry”. Customers experience a welcoming atmosphere from the Genesis staff, who love spending time with their clients. Many of the staff members are long term and have been there “just as long as [Genesis has] been open”. When it comes to products, Genesis is always looking for something new and exciting! They carry unique and exclusive fashions – Including the comfortable and fashionable Bernie Mev. footwear.
Genesis Fashion Beauty Boutique has won various awards, including Business of the Year and Readers’ Choice Awards. Anna’s sister, Gina (one of Genesis’ original owners), also received the KCBIA’s first Downtown Leadership Award. Located at 319 Victoria Street, Genesis has played an essential part in maintaining the vibrant, friendly atmosphere that we experience every day in Downtown Kamloops. Whether you are looking for a new hairdo, a relaxing pedicure, or a sophisticated sundress – Anna and her wonderful staff at Genesis Fashion Beauty Boutique have got you covered!
