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.
