This home goods and clothing store in Poughkeepsie is on a mission to bring back brick-and-mortar retail while revitalizing the neighborhood.
There hasn’t been a department store in downtown Poughkeepsie since Luckey, Platt & Company closed its doors in 1981. But last summer, an updated version made its debut on Garden Street, near the westbound arterial. Canvas + Clothier is, as its owners Mary Vaughn Williams and Jillian Grano call it, a micro-department store—a place to buy home goods, clothes for men and women, accessories, and even get a bite to eat.
Before malls were a thing, the Hudson Valley flocked to Downtown Poughkeepsie to shop. The Queen City’s ongoing revitalization just got a major boost into the era of “next wave” retail with the opening of Canvas + Clothier, a micro-department store with a wide selection of clothing and home goods and a passion for supporting sustainable fashion, domestic manufacturing, and community engagement.
