March 8th is International Women’s Day and we want to put a spotlight on local women-owned businesses in Calgary that you can support – with a little extra bonus for you!


It’s no secret that most women are facing an uphill battle that is steeper than most men have to climb to reach the same success. It has been well-documented. And as a woman, our owner Megan understands how much harder the majority of women have to work to be seen and heard – especially in business. This leads us to this year’s International Women’s Day. Megan and all of us at espy want to take this time to spotlight the other shops and businesses with powerhouse women who are killing it in Calgary.


Support local women and get a treat from espy

Until the end of March if you shop at any women-owned business in Calgary, and bring in or email us a receipt, we will give you 10% off all regular priced goods. This can be used in-store or online! Plus, since espy is a woman-owned business, we also want to reward those who chose to spend their money with us. We are also giving 10% off to anyone who comes into the store and spends $600 or more!


Here is a list of women-owned businesses in & around Calgary

We have put togetther a giant (but not exhaustive) list of women-owned businesses we know of and love in Calgary and the surrounding areas. We ask that you please support these businesses today and every day!
