Do you sell online?
It's more like mail order. Instructions are on each photo of stock on our facebook page. We ship all over the world, and we offer free shipping on clothing orders over $150 in Manitoba. Phone us to order, it's toll free, and you get to speak to a HUMAN BEING!
What are your hours?
Monday - Friday 10 to 9
Saturday 11 to 7
Sunday 12 to 5
However, this changes throughout the year, as some monthls like January or November we have shortened hours, and in peak season like Xmas we extend hours. Holidays we generally are open, except Christmas Day and New Years Day. On occasion our staff have family obligations or have been given the okay to close down earlier than normal, depending on how busy it is.

OMG SPONSOR ME.
Haha. Cute. You best have better game than that. Read the Sponsor Me section of our website.
Are you hiring?
Likely no, we keep our ship tight. We're one of those weird shops that usually gives shopkids and friends jobs rather than random people we don't know. You're always welcome to drop off a thorough resume and just as a headsup, put down references. When we see no references the resume by default creeps closer to the shredder.
Can you special order me _______________?
Maybe. We pre-book our inventory 6 to 9 months in advance. Ever since the Economy went in the shitter a few years back, most companies don't warehouse huge amounts of inventory. Because of that, there's a slim-to-none chance that we can get what you want unless the timing is perfect. Sometimes the timing is perfect, just not often.
Why are your prices the way they are?
Simply put? Economics. Because of our geography, we can charge a few bucks more on better selling items, and less bucks on things that don't sell as well in our market. We use the "law of averages" to balance things out. So yes, you may find a similar item for a few bucks cheaper in Winnipeg. That's likely because it was a larger store, purchasing more inventory and getting larger discounts than us. It's also because the item didn't get shipped 1000 clicks into the boonies overnighted on a freight truck from Vancouver or Montreal. Shipping is not cheap. If you'd like to understand the economics of it more, please read this note we wrote a while back. Read that. Don't be ignorant.
Is there any more stock in the back?
No. If we have stock, it's on the sales floor. There's zero point to stashing items in the back where they can't sell.
Who owns Funky Threadz?
Funky Threadz is a private, family ran business, owned by the Conaty Family of The Pas, Manitoba. It was founded by Jerome Conaty, who chased his childhood dream of selling ill gear. The Winnipeg Free Press wrote a nice little piece here. Go ahead and laugh at the pic in that article- it's horrid.
Hook me up with a deal.
We can be a tad flexible with pricing for very regular customers that are buying a few items at a time. But, please keep in mind what would happen if you went to Sport Chek at Polo Park and got asked for a hook-up. So, the short answer? koff.
