About Us

logoAs you can see from our new logo and our new website, we have recently changed the name of our business from Contemporary Concepts North to Apropos!

In business since 1993 as Contemporary Concepts North, we have offered Bridal Registry, distinctive home furnishings, an array of exquisite tabletop and gift items for every occasion. With a focus on style and quality, Apropos showcases products from some of the leading brands, including: Juliska, Mariposa, William Yeoward, Nambe, Bernardaud, Simon Pearce, Herend....the list is endless and evolving.

Apropos is not just an Allison Park retail store. We are a shopper’s haven, a retail destination, a place where the most discriminate shopper can get lost in an array of unique, quality products, friendly smiles and excellent customer service.

We have carved a niche in the gift store industry: offering the most exceptional products, at the best value, with superior customer service. Forging relationships with our clients, and in turn getting to know their friends, provides us with the unique ability to find that perfect gift. We are a phone call away from a stress-free shopping experience: selecting the gift, wrapping it and shipping it, if necessary.

Since our opening in 1993, our product mix has evolved to better serve our customers. Our new name reflects our unique offerings, and includes product lines unimagined when we began decades ago. In addition to "dressing" tables, we are now dressing babies and their Mom's, too. Clothing, jewelry and fashion accessories have become a large part of our inventory. With that being said, we felt it was time to usher in a new era for Contemporary Concepts “North”, with a promise of the same quality products and service that our valuable customers have always received.

A rebirth was in order and while the location and sales staff will remain the same, a name change was not just necessary, but shall we say....
