LETTERS: Great local service in Kimberley

Why shop at home? Your community has excellent stores for shopping. I live in Manitoba and wanted to get a Christmas gift delivered to my family in Kimberly without them knowing what is was before Christmas. I was not wanting to trust Canada Post for delivery before Christmas. I had phoned a large store to see if I ordered on line for pick up would they put the present in a box or dark bag to hid the present. Answer was no. I then remember your local stores and phoned the hardwear store and told them of my dilemma. They took my order and suggest that they could gift wrap it. They were very helpful and wonderful to deal with. We have had good service at this store when we have visited in person . You need to keep this kind of business in you community.

A happy consumer
