About Us

Knockabouts offers up a little something for everyone.
It's our goal to deliver a fun, honest shopping experience
to everyone who walks through our doors. After all,
we’ve been wearing it well since 1980.


Hi! I'm Jessica Knaggs, thank you for taking the time to visit my shop!
I live in Carman, Manitoba (home to Knockabouts) with my husband Garry and our two boys
Grayson & Lachlan. For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with fashion (although
circa the early 2000's my style was questionable)! Other things I enjoy are a good cup of coffee,
nice glass of wine, camping with my family & crossword puzzles!
It became a dream of mine to one day own my own boutique in the late 2000's when I was
given the opportunity to work at Knockabouts! In 2010 I moved to Vancouver, BC for one
year where I received a diploma in Fashion Business & Creative Arts. From there I worked in
the Winnipeg Fashion industry for about 5 years as part of a buying team for Ricki's stores.
After the birth of our first son in 2014 I returned to Knockabouts & the rest is history!
Knockabouts first opened its doors in 1980. In the spring of 2020 I took the shop over from
the original owner, Karen Rempel. We re-branded and gave the shop a new look. However,
the integrity of the business remains the same. We are a small boutique shop with heart and
passion. We love being able to offer fresh fashion advice, quality trend right fashion items & an
honest, fun shopping experience for everyone who comes through our doors! I look forward
to shopping with you soon!
