PENTICTON, British Columbia — “Sometimes good things can emerge from difficult times. This was the case for longtime resident Susie Gay who launched off her mountain bike on Aug. 24, 2022, breaking her shoulder in eight places. With so many breaks, Gay was told by doctors that movement could cause displacement. The 38 days that followed were spent in stillness.
“It was a ‘break’ in so many ways. While the recovery was challenging, it presented the gift of time. A break from work and the busyness of life, to dream and start bringing our vision to reality,” said Gay.
It was this stillness that was the catalyst to fulfilling a dream Susie and her husband Bryan Gay had had for years: a conscious and connected type of store, with an equal emphasis on men’s wear.
Located at 285 Westminster Ave. W., Slow Current is now open, offering clothing and accessories with a focus on sustainability, Canadian brands, and ethical manufacturing in downtown Penticton.”
