For most people when thinking about 'Coco' they are often swept away with thoughts of snowy winter evenings sipping warm chocolaty marshmallow topped beverages. For fashion lovers all neurons in their brain shout Chanel! But for those who have ventured into Coco's Closet, located on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver BC, will quickly connect the “who?” with this store's very own Coco. She was always seen sporting a sleek brown coat with a touch of animal print or purple polka dots, had a smile from ear to ear, eyes that could warm your heart and an appetite that would put a grown man to shame. She would often be lounging near racks of clothes, welcoming both customers and furry friends into the store, and punctually informing her best friend Donna when it was time for lunch. Yes, this is an odd description for a person, but for a chocolate labrador it only speaks the truth.
Coco was laid to rest on July 5th 2013, but will forever hold a special place in the hearts of those who knew her and the memory of Coco will be eternalized through her store.
