For the person who has everything
Question and answer with Jonathan Allison of Aberdeen Gift.
Could you describe your business?
Aberdeen is a family-owned independent gift store located in South Lancaster, Ontario, right beside The Jewellery Factory. Our home decor celebrates the beauty of each changing season.
We also offer a wide selection of gifts which are perfect for all occasions. Our friendly staff will help you make your home a warm and inviting space that you can relax in and enjoy all year long.
What type of products do you sell?
Aberdeen is proud to offer an incredible selection of awardwinning and hard-to-find items. This includes many locally produced items, gourmet foods, home decor, scented candles and sachets, and gifts for all ages and interests.
We also have an incredible selection of personal care products from Michel Designs and Crabtree and Evelyn, including hand therapy items, lotions, soaps, bath gels, and more. Why should people shop locally? Shopping locally is directly connected with building our community and is likely the most powerful means we have of expressing our personal values and beliefs.
Small local businesses are the largest employers nationally and create two out of every three new jobs.
Buying locally means that employment levels are more likely to be stable, and may even create more opportunities for local residents to work in the community.
Our stores, Aberdeen and The Jewellery Factory, support local suppliers, employ local workers, and serve local consumers.
By shopping at Aberdeen and The Jewellery Factory you are also supporting local charities, fundraisers, organizations, and events within your community each year. Shopping locally also helps to build a sense of connection and pride within our community.
