Looking for Vegan stores around the World. Ideas?

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for Vegan or vegan-friendly stores from around the world. Any ideas for me?

www.veganbodybuilding.com turns 10 years old in February and after a full decade of hustling, we're finally starting to take off!

I tour half the year and we average about $500-$1500 in Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness clothing sales per festival we exhibit at. This helps us spread the word like crazy and keeps the site, and business going. www.veganessentials.com also sells an inspiring amount of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness clothing as well.

I'm looking to have the clothing available at online and retail shops around the globe. Just today I lined up another store in the US and one in Canada and reached out to many more from Australia to Canada to the US. I just learned of some in the UK a few minutes ago and will reach out to them as well.

Do you know of any online vegan stores in your country, or retail vegan-friendly shops that might be interested in carrying some of the clothing items we make?

Here are some of them and we'll have more featured online soon, as soon as I get home from tour to post photos of more items:

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Hi Robert,
I'm in Australia, and there's a vegan store near my place called the "Radical Grocery Store"
They're not HUGE but they stock clothing as well as food and other items and may be interested?
Here's their website: http://www.radicalgrocery.com
There's also and Australian online store simply called "the Vegan Store": http://www.theveganstore.com.au/
All the best!

Oh gosh I typed your name as Richard instead of Robert, how embarrassing!
My bad! Just fixed it up, I know I'm pretty bad with names, but I didn't think I was THAT bad!
I'm new here anyways, and just got your book today! Its fantastic, I'd love to see your stuff in stores down here ;)

Thanks, Simi!

I appreciate the info! No prob, call me Richard anytime, he keeps this site up and running well, so I'd be happy to be referred to as Richard :)

Thank you for these links. I'll see what I can do about getting the clothing into stores in Australia. I've contacted two stores so far without a reply, but I'll keep working on it.

We moved a bunch of clothing at the Chicago Vegan Mania festival yesterday and I'm looking forward to expanding internationally very soon.

If you get a chance to ask any stores directly or by email, feel free to request that they carry the items and I'll follow up with them. They can reach me at robert@veganbodybuilding.com anytime and view the items on: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=products

Thank you again,

Robert
