Good news for bar­gain hun­ters

Chate­laine’s finds new home on First av­enue West

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS - Jennifer Hamil­ton-mccharles

Chate­laine’s bar­gains has found a new home.

the down­town busi­ness, which was due to close, is mov­ing to 466 First ave. W., the for­mer home of dom­still bath and Light shop.

the move, sched­uled to take place next month, fol­lowed no­ti­fi­ca­tion in au­gust by the north bay Fire depart­ment that Chate­laine’s needed to up­date the ex­ist­ing build­ing’s sprin­kler sys­tem at a cost of more than $30,000.

“We take over the new build­ing at the end of oc­to­ber. We have to do some re­paint­ing and we ex­pect to re-open by nov. 1,” says don Chate­laine, the owner of Chate­laine’s bar­gains.

the new build­ing is about 2,000 square feet – 3,000 square feet less than the for­mer lo­ca­tion on main street West.

“the price was good and it’s across the street from an apart­ment build­ing where a lot of my cus­tomers live. It’s only a fiveminute walk far­ther for those liv­ing at the em­pire Liv­ing Cen­tre,” Chate­laine says.

“I ex­pect to still see my reg­u­lars. We’ve been ex­tremely busy, but we still have a lot of lit­tle stuff for sale.”

Chate­laine says he had two yard sales and still ended up tak­ing three truck­loads and a van full of stuff to Value Vil­lage.
