One of this little city’s favourite spots is the wonderful Lore General Store on Government Street, right in the heart of downtown.
This beautiful little shop is minimal in its aesthetic. Here you will find a well curated collection of local goods focusing on sustainability and zero waste.
The owner and shopkeep, Stephanie Hartwig, is well known for her support of local artisans and features work by ceramists Amanda Marie and Marita Manson.
In addition to locally made pottery and beauty products, you can get your refills on non-toxic soaps, shampoos, lotions and cleaning products with their refill program. And you can even find a few thoughtfully selected vintage pieces dotted throughout the store.
During Covid they have virtual shopping via Facetime and free contactless pick up Monday to Friday 2-4pm
