There’s Christmas shopping and then there’s Christmas shopping.
The former is what most of us do around this time of year – buy items for the people we love. The latter is when you go out shopping for items to help make the Christmas season a bit more merrier. Whether it’s a new wreath for the door, some more ornaments for the tree, or some Yuletide knickknacks to liven up your living room, Christmas shopping will always put you in a festive spirit.
The good news is there’s a store in Cornwall that caters to both kinds of shopping. Laura’s Gifts, located at 1140B Brookdale, already resembles a Christmas superstore. The 6,000-square-foot facility is already home to eight Christmas trees and it’s packed with ornaments and other Christmas gift ideas.
There are baby gifts, wedding gifts, jewelry, gourmet food, and a brand new olive oil and balsamic tasting bar, where you can get your own bottles custom poured and labelled right there in the store.
Laura’s, which has been operating since 1988, is owned by South Glengarry couple, Kim and Leon Sabourin.
