Christmas countdown begins … but after Remembrance Day!
Whew … we made it through our flood, moved into our back-to-school season and now… we start getting ready for Remembrance Day and then Christmas. Anyone who sees our front window during the first weeks of November knows that we honour our fallen, our vets and those currently serving with a display. Prominently positioned will be a pic of our own Lieutenant Colonel Gordon Bennett, great-grandson of our original owner, A.T. Squibb, who is proudly serving Canada and is a vet of the war in Afghanistan.
Lest We Forget….
Please note: We will continue to maintain our policy of a ‘locked door’ to reduce the risk to customers and allow them to feel safe while shopping.
Masks are mandatory even if you are vaccinated.
Just a reminder…. as we have for now over 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!
