Introducing Loofy!

Loofy is an American Eskimo, and has become an unlikely fixture of our new space.

Bred as an alert dog, Loofy is not very well-suited to our bustling Hudson location - he is apt to give us a "helpful" bark to let us know when customers walk in! But the quiet work-in-progress that is our future home is right up his alley - and, like an alley, it is the perfect spot in which to chase his ball! 

Loofy has been at our new shop on Milton nearly every day during this renovation phase, and quite enjoys his role as resident canine. Here are some photos we have snapped during the last few weeks:

Once we reopen on July 10th, Loofy will go back to spending his days at home. But, in the meantime, we love having this fluffy "supervisor" around as we ready our new digs!

Launch Party and Press!

Heya, gang!

It's been a long while since I posted here, but our impending move is well worth a couple of words.
I, personally, am absolutely thrilled about the transition: We are none of us who we were five, ten, or twenty years ago, and the same can be said for Edgewood. It makes sense to move to a space that encourages our continued growth and sustainability, and heralds the promise of exciting new things for our business!

That being said, I would like to extend a cordial invitation, on behalf of the Edgewood team, to join us for a housewarming celebration on Tuesday, July 10th, at 9063 Milton in Montreal West.
Our customers will enjoy 15% off all in-store purchases, all day long, as well as free gourmet cookies (while they last, of course,) from St-Henri's Sweet Lee's Rustic Bakery.  From 2:30PM to closing, we'll also be treated to a DJ set from Marc Francis, taking time out from his busy music-making schedule as Taperecorder.

Also, you can hear our very own Corinne Van Egmond discuss Edgewood's move and history with Jeannette Kelly on CBC Radio's Home Run. She'll be on the air live on Wednesday, July 4th, at 4:10PM.

I believe we'll also be featured on Global News at 6 tonight, since their camera crew was in earlier today. You'll want to tune in and see if that happens.
