A Little Bit About Us
-Owner, ZuZu Fashion Boutique
A new challenge and my passion for fashion drove me to purchase ZuZu in 2015 when the opportunity came along. While my career had been firmly rooted in Toronto’s corporate world for over 20 years, I was part of the ZuZu staff from 2012 and loved the experience of helping a woman discover her own expression of beauty, confidence and style.
Having grown up in Barrie, I am thrilled to be back and proud to own this charming boutique in our beautiful downtown where my family and I currently call home.
Let the Ladies of ZuZu help you find the perfect outfit!
Shop Manager/Fashion Devoteé
Della is retired from a 30+ year career in law enforcement. She started with the Toronto Police Service, then came to Barrie where she broke ground as the first female Sergeant and Staff Sergeant in the history of the Barrie force. And now the Chief is a woman! Having spent all those years in a uniform, Della loves her role at ZuZu where she channels her own fashionista while helping customers find that perfect look.
Sales Associate/Edge Icon
Catherine belongs in the circus. She not only juggles two busy professions as an author and a qualified mediator, she trains and performs on trapeze and aerial hoop. After sustaining several brain injuries (none related to circus!) she moved back to Barrie where she is Chair of the City’s Accessibility Advisory Committee.
In the 1980s, Catherine worked in a punk rock fashion boutique and she rocks an edgy but feminine look. Her mediation experience taught her to ask the right questions, which helps her find exactly what customers are looking for and what they feel fabulous wearing!
Sales Associate/Classic Icon
Brenda joined ZuZu in October 2020. She stayed close to her hometown, Innisfil, for most of her life. Throughout the years she has been very involved in her community from leading youth choir musicals and working in non-profit supporting families struggling with life-altering losses, to being part-owner in the beauty industry. She loves classic and fun fashion.
Her vision is for her clients to feel that someone cares about them and their needs, that they feel confident, comfortable and beautiful in their own style.
If you want someone who knows where every penny is at any time, Joanne’s the one for you. Serving clients in the retail, contracting, and service industries, she has a special place in her heart for small business entrepreneurs, especially those on Dunlop Street in downtown Barrie. ZuZu gives her a chance to get her girly girl on…oh, and she’s Tracey’s sister which makes Joanne extra special!

The items last for years, all of them. - Laurel Woodrow
Over the last several years ,I have so enjoyed my shopping experience at ZuZu’s fashion boutique.
