The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Since 1945, peo­ple have been warm­ing up to Bou­tique Le­vaque Four­rures Furs in Hawkes­bury.

Spe­cial­iz­ing in re­cy­cling, re­pair­ing and stor­age of fur coats and ac­ces­sories, the Main Street store also sells and re­pairs leather, shear­ling, down, polyester.

Le­vaque is not only known for furs but also for wool, shear­ling, leather, and ready-to-wear brand name coats and ac­ces­sories.

Pro­pri­etor Jean-Yves Le­vaque is fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of his fa­ther, who started the busi­ness more than 70 years ago. While the ini­tial store spe­cial­ized in fur gar­ments, over the years, the shop has ex­panded its se­lec­tion to in­clude a wide va­ri­ety of prod­ucts and styles. Teddy bears and ham­mocks can also be found at the shop. While you’re there, ask how old fur coats can be re­cy­cled into rugs.
