A great time was had by all who attended Pioneer Home Hardware Building Centre’s 80th celebration over the weekend.

Residents of all ages enjoyed a special treat of over 300 cupcakes, celebration draws and contests, excellent sale pricing and handy product demos supplied by various store vendors. This kids action was not missed at the party, with a face painter on site, Bounce A Rama and even a Barnyard Party Animals area that featured two new hedge hogs!

Co-owners Gary Thulin and Allison Kilby were humbled that so many loyal customers and guests took the time to join in on their fun celebration day this past Saturday, Sept. 16. Now working as a three-person team, Thulin, Kilby and Theresa Handel were happy to receive such overwhelming support from the community, store vendors and guests of the event. Mayor Andy Adams had some kind words of support for the 100 per cent locally owned and operated business of 80 years in Campbell River, as did Mike Richards representing Home Hardware Stores Limited in the fall themed ceremony on site.

All was great even outside the store, with plaza neighbors that joined in the fun! JK’s Meatshop hosted a delicious beef burger barbecue and Walcan Seafoods featured a fresh salmon burger menu on the day of. Raspberry Rascals had a popular local face painter onsite, Ron’s Barbershop ran a raffle benefiting Cops for Cancer and Dairy Queen supplied free treats for guests at the party.
