Shop Local

While Startup Vernon focuses on tech businesses, we’re also big fans of shopping at local businesses in downtown Vernon. Here are some of our favourites:


Ratio Coffee – perfectly prepared coffee & pastry. Located in the old train station.

The Roxy Cafe – housed in the same downtown Vernon building on 31st Street as the historic Roxy Bakery and Delicatessen.


The Gentlemens Shop & Shave Parlour – if you’re looking for a great haircut, shave, or beard care, you need to check out these barbers. Brett and Andrew are really passionate about men’s hair! Location: 2902 31 Ave, Vernon, BC

Okanagan Skate Co – Skateboards, apparel, and shoes. Location: 3304B-30TH Ave, Vernon, BC

Dogwood Records – a hidden gem. If you’re looking for vinyl records, Andy has the best selection and knows music!
