2021 … one step forward…. 10 back.

Welcome back …. but now we are shut again.

     We are now weeks into April and back in a ‘state of emergency’ / lockdown. We are no longer able to allow customers back into our store, however, we can do curbside pick-ups!  So, as we maintain our policy of a ‘locked door’, if you need to come in to pay, then you will be able to quickly.  Otherwise, we will bring your goodies to the door, take your card if it taps or cash if that is the only option.

Just a reminder…. as we have for almost 94 years, we are here to help you with your educational / office supply / school supply / art supply needs!

And don’t forget those special occasions that need a unique gift!  Mother’s Day is soon approaching as is Communion/Confirmation, then Father’s Day.

Current hours – Monday to Saturday:  10:30am to 5pm

Please call so we can get your order ready for pick-up and you can pay when upon arrival preferably by debit or credit tap – we are still preferring not to take cash.

You can place your orders by phone, email and through Facebook Messenger or Instagram. Delivery available – call to arrange by credit card.

Our contact info is as follows: Phone: 416-241-5801

    Great to see History survive… I remember many evenings doing homework upstairs when my parents John and Judith Woods used to own this store back in the mid 70’s. How Weston has changed over the years.

    Wishing you continued success!

      Thanks Bob for reaching out! I have no information on your parents – didn’t even know their names other than the last name. I actually had a request for information from a Sher Bradbeer who was looking for your family but since I had none, I couldn’t share (not that I would without consent!!). Give me a call – 416-241-5801 – I’d love to get your family history to go with the rest. I know the family who bought from your parents, Milt & Kally Janetakes, but nothing about yours.

      Suri @ Squibbs
