One big chunk of hap­pi­ness

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Walk­ing into Laura’s The Art of Liv­ing store in Corn­wall is like walk­ing into a big chunk of hap­pi­ness.

At least that’s the way owner Kim Sabourin tells it.

“Our cus­tomers al­ways tell us that they feel fan­tas­tic when they visit us,” she says. “I’ve had peo­ple tell me they come into the store feel­ing bad and they leave feel­ing good.”

For most of its 16 years, Laura’s billed it­self as a flower and gift store. But late last year, it re­branded it­self as a life­style store.

“That’s be­cause we have 6,000 square feet of ev­ery­thing,” ex­plains Mrs. Sabourin. “We have jew­elry, home decor, gourmet foods, kitchen gad­gets, light­ing, frames – we’re a one- stop shop.”

Al­though Laura’s has changed its name and is cur­rently up­dat­ing its web­site, Mrs. Sabourin wants her cus­tomers to know she’s still offering the flow­ers and choco­lates that were for sale at the old store. Laura’s The Art of Liv­ing is lo­cated at 1140 Brook­dale in Corn­wall.
