Laura’s Win­ter Won­der­land

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - Holiday Gift Guide -

Laura’s The Art of Liv­ing & Giv­ing is also known as Laura’s Win­ter Won­der­land.

The store at 1140 Brook­dale Ave., Corn­wall has been grow­ing since it started out in 1988 on Au­gus­tus Street.

The rea­sons for the suc­cess are nu­mer­ous: Qual­ity, ser­vice, price, and vast se­lec­tion of prod­ucts that will not be found else­where.

Some of the most pop­u­lar gifts in­clude Alex and Ani jew­lery, olive oil and bal­samic vine­gar from its tast­ing bar, fresh flow­ers for all oc­ca­sions, and choco­late.

In the be­gin­ning, Laura’s Flow­ers & Fine Gifts started with fresh flow­ers, plants, gift­ware and home decor.

The busi­ness quickly out­grew that space and de­cided to move to a larger lo­ca­tion that was able to ac­com­mo­date its growth, in a tastefully re­stored build­ing called Place Lau­rier. With a lo­ca­tion change came a name change as well, to Laura’s The Art of Liv­ing & Giv­ing, “to re­flect our evolu- tion as a com­pany and how much more di­verse we’ve be­come.”

“We now spe­cial­ize in flow­ers, plants, gourmet food, Corn­wall’s first and only olive oil and bal­samic tast­ing bar, small house­wares, cloth­ing, jew­elry and much more; a true life­style store. With over 6,000 square feet we are Canada’s largest store of its kind. We strive to im­prove the lives of our cus­tomers by al­ways go­ing the ex­tra mile. Our staff takes the time to lend a friendly hand to ev­ery­one. Cus­tomers of­ten tell us that Laura’s lifts them up when they’re feel­ing down and that’s some­thing we don’t take lightly. We may be here to sell gifts, but our higher pur­pose is to make peo­ple feel their best.”
