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.
