Retailer of Distinction 2015

A lifestyle boutique owned by Corinne Robertson-Brown and her husband Bill Brown, J’Adorn is adored by locals and the cottagers and campers visiting southwest Ontario. Opened in Kincardine in 2010, J’Adorn expanded to a second location in Hanover in early 2015.

The Kincardine location finds its home in a heritage building, which was built in 1877 and has always housed a gift or china shop. In Hanover, J’Adorn can also be found in a heritage building with main street exposure. Both stores carry a distinctive mix of home furnishings, garden décor, children’s items, home décor, giftware and more.

They seldom use traditional retail display fixtures, opting to merchandise products on top of other items to show how pieces can work together and tell a story. While they carry hundreds of products, each is carefully handpicked to ensure it becomes a distinct find. This helps create a beautiful, serene and inspiring place for their customers to find the perfect item for themselves or friends.

“We feel so lucky to be surrounded by beauty and be able to give free rein to our creativity every day,” says Corinne. “Since we opened our doors in 2010, our customers have continually inspired us to be the best we can. It is thanks to our loyal customers and terrific team that we are doing what we love. Accepting the Retailer of Distinction Award is the icing on the cake.”


J’Adorn is a member of the Kincardine and Hanover Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Downtown Business Improvement Associations in both locales. They proudly sponsor local events from theatre, music and the arts to local sports teams and student fundraisers.
