Our Story

Close To You opened in 1991 as a tiny, 700 SF lingerie store specializing in bra fitting and hard to find sizes in beautiful downtown Parksville, BC, Canada. It is now over 4300 SF of gorgeous fashions, lingerie, footwear, and accessories, as well as an ecommerce store!

Sandy Herle (owner) can often be heard saying "onward and upward" in her never-ending quest to learn and grow, and true to form, Close To You has become not only a complete women’s store - dressing women from head to toe - but a destination store for locals and tourists alike.
