Creative retail is a great way to capture attention and form community in the digital age. Tapping this in its entirety is bodega thirteen — "an online store and creative studio" that is based in Toronto, Ontario.

The business was founded as a brick-and-mortar establishment in 2014. Founder Elizabeth Arlow was quick to adapt to the shifting landscape of retail, harnessing the multidisciplinary essence of a concept store and combining it with design-oriented sensibilities and e-commerce. As a result, bodega thirteen's creative retail approach propels the business forward as it makes it a target for strategic collaborations with forward-thinking artists, "independent and alternative brands" who curate and execute "limited products and authentic experiences."

In terms of the contemporary environment of the industry, creative retail has a defining edge.
