To open ‘boutique’ in Magog
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.
