The Passing Of The Torch
Many people in Cornwall are familiar with The Trophy Shop located on Second Street West, and of course with long time owners Barry & Joanne Cox. Earlier this year Barry and Joanne retired and have passed the torch on to new owners Dennis and Lanielle St. Denis. The St. Denis’ have been operating The Trophy Shop much the same, and plan to continue doing so. What is new though is the recently launched e-commerce site, Trophy Shop Canada.
“We love operating the shop and working with different organizations, schools and clubs one-on-one”, said Mr. St. Denis. “However, we felt that we could build the business with an E-commerce site.”
A visit to the new website and it quickly becomes apparent that almost any type of award is available. Traditional trophies with many different designs and sizes are available, as well as plaques, medals, and even clocks.
If you are looking for a truly unique gift to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or even just a way to say thank you or show your appreciation there are gift options. Clocks are becoming very popular and serve a useful function. Personalized messaging can be added using heat transfer technology.
“People are often surprised that we can create custom items,” said Lanielle St. Denis. “Celebrating life’s milestones with a custom created item makes it special and a lot of fun. Working directly with people is something that we enjoy and will definitely continue with in the shop, but now we can do it online as well.”
With the pace of life today, an online shop makes it easier for everyone to shop for what they need, and to create some sort of a plan to satisfy their needs. Having an idea what is available and what we like makes actually finalizing the purchase a little faster and easier.
There is an endless list of choices – shields, plates, signs, badges, trophies, acrylics, medals, plaques, glassware, and even urn plates can be created to celebrate a date, name or special event. Got an idea of what you might like, but have a few questions, or have no idea what you would like? Stop in and talk to Dennis and Lanielle at the shop at 1201 Second Street West or check out the new website.
