As we head into the Thanksgiving Long Weekend, we wanted to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to reflect and give thanks, and it all starts with you.
Without our dedicated and passionate customers, Like Grandpa would be nothing more than a dream. Each and every one of you help inspire us to do more, be better and continue to earn your trust. We’re not exaggerating when we say the highlight of our week is spending time with our customers and meeting people from all walks of life at the Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market. We love your smiles, hearing your stories, answering your questions and your passion for grooming and shaving. Our dream has become reality and it’s thanks to you.
Thank you to all of the local businesses that have opened their doors to us. Our all-natural products can be found at Kent of Inglewood, Barber Ha, Plum Home Design, and Tix on the Square in Edmonton. Just a few minutes out of town, you can find us at Urban Whyte in Devon. Then there are our friends in southern Alberta. Outside the Shape in Calgary and The Tamarack in Waterton National Park have graciously welcomed us into their business, recognizing the local is more than just Edmonton… we’re Alberta made and proud of where we come from.
It’s hard to put into words just how thankful we are to ATB and its Alberta BoostR program. If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a crowdfunding platform that helps boost entrepreneurs and small businesses in our province. Simply put, it provides business owners with invaluable exposure and expert advice. ATB and its BoostR program empowers Albertans to chase after their hopes and dreams. It challenges us to think big and come up with fresh ideas. We are so grateful for ATB’s support – not only for us but for all local businesses in our province.
And thank you to our family and friends – too many to name individually. You have embraced our vision and your unconditional love and support continues to push us to unimaginable heights.
From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
