Vancouver citizens can look forward to not one, but two new vegan businesses opening next month. Edible Flours, started by couple Paul Briggs and Alli Neville, has been making and delivering vegan and gluten-free baked goods for a year. Now, they are set to open a storefront, becoming Vancouver’s first all-vegan retail bakery. “We’re obviously a bit nervous, because no one’s done it before,” Briggs says. With all the positive feedback in the past year, however, Briggs adds, it’s “worth taking a shot.” Nice Shoes will also be joining Vancouver’s vegan forces on March 1, featuring only cruelty-free footwear. In addition to shoes, the store will carry belts, handbags, and various accessories.
