To open ‘bou­tique’ in Ma­gog

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Vic­to­ria Vanier

TheRes­sourcerie des Fron­tieres, the so­cial econ­omy busi­ness lo­cated in Coat­i­cook that re­cy­cles and re­sells goods of all kinds, is plan­ning to open a sec­ond ‘bou­tique’ at the site of the old Rossy store, in Ma­gog. Since the news was re­leased last week, some con­cern has been shown that the new store, planned to open in May, will clash with the up­scale bou­tiques lo­cated along Prin­ci­pale.

The Coat­i­cook store­front, which is well-or­ga­nized and at­tracts buy­ers from near and far, is lo­cated in an old fac­tory which also houses the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s de­pot. Coat­i­cook pa­trons of the lo­cal ser­vice are con­cerned that some of the Res­sourcerie’s ‘best stuff’ might now end up in Ma­gog. The Gen­eral Direc­tor of this im­por­tant ser­vice, Karine Cantin, as re­ported in Le Re­flet du lac, has com­mented that the Ma­gog store will be nice and adapted to the en­vi­ron­ment, and that the mer­chan­dise will be di­vided equally be­tween the two store­fronts. The Res­sourcerie des Fron­tieres di­verts tons of ma­te­rial from land­fill sites in both the Coat­i­cook and Mem­phrem­a­gog MRCs an­nu­ally.

They­oung hockey play­ers in the Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion will be do­ing some ex­tra skat­ing to raise money for their club. A skate-a-thon has been or­ga­nized for Thurs­day, March 12th, at the Pat Burns Arena. The Mag and Novice play­ers will skate from 6:00 pm to 6:25 pm while the older play­ers skate from 6:25 pm to 6:50 pm.

Play­ers will soon be call­ing rel­a­tives and go­ing door-to-door with their pledge sheets and the top seven fundrais­ers will get a chance to win prizes. “We’ve got some great prizes, this year, like a trip to the Jay Peak wa­ter­park, to en­cour­age the kids,” said Emily John­ston, one of the or­ga­niz­ers of the fundraiser.

Play­offs for the Bor­der teams begin this week­end and will be tak­ing place in Ma­gog, Coat­i­cook and Sherboroke.
