Global News Highlighting the Struggle of Small Business in Canada

Global News Edmonton and West End Gallery

It's not a secret that many small businesses throughout Canada have been struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic. We operate two store locations, one in Edmonton, AB. The second is in Victoria, B.C., and between the two, it employs seven people and has been in business since 1975.

Since the lockdown in March of 2020, we have been pivoting our business, trying our best to adapt to a rapidly changing world. We want to thank Kendra Slugoski and Fletcher Kent of Global News Edmonton, shining a light on our gallery and highlighting the issues our business has been trying to overcome for the past seven months.
