Ghostrider Trading Company
661A 2nd Ave

Ghostrider Trading Company celebrates 20 years! The store opened for business on November 24, 2000, the creation of Kay Chesley and Brenda Birrell, and became the destination for 
“all things Fernie” and was the anchor in the newly renovated Fernie General Store building.

Over the years the name has stayed the same, however the concept changed under the ownership of Judith Johannsson and Sonya Erzinger. Women’s clothing and footwear were introduced in 2005, gradually dominating the store. They also recognised that demand for women’s footwear grew every year, and decided to expand and open a separate shoe store across the hall.
Ghostrider Trading Company has been open 364 days every year since 2000 (not counting the 60 day Covid closure). Judith and Sonya would like to thank everyone for coming through their doors. “The support of our clients enables the store to donate regularly to an extensive roster of local causes.”
