Great Canadian Gift Co. Super Store relocating in West Ancaster

ANCASTER, ON, Nov. 24, 2011 /CNW/ - What comes to mind when you think of Canadian products, maple syrup? You may also think Canadian bacon, Ice Wine, Smoked Salmon or Beiber Fever if you will. And yes, they are all great Canadian exports. There are however, so many more delightful, delicious, attractive and practical products that evolve from this vast land we call Canada. Visit and you will see hundreds of these lesser known creations hailing from above the 49th.

The owners of the Great Canadian Gift Company, Tracy & Glen Miller while vacationing in PEI developed their business plan on a serviette that sat adjacent to a dozen recently devoured fresh oysters and a pint of Keith's. Miller explains, "We had came from the PEI Preserves store, which is a wonderful place by the way, and discussed between us, why isn't there a business that celebrates and endorses all things Canadian? Then we thought, well, maybe there is but we just haven't heard or seen any business of this nature. We came home, searched online and could not find any company with a similar business plan." That was 2004 and from that informal meeting on a patio overlooking the Atlantic, The Great Canadian Gift Company was born.

Initially a web based business, Tracy and Glen inventoried, packaged and shipped hundreds of Canadian products from their home. That is until Tracy became increasingly irritated by the swath of parcels engulfing her quarters. With business increasing and limited space, they determined that a commercial warehouse was necessary to accommodate the increase in business and to preserve their sanity. The business moved to the Ancaster Business Park and flourished. Glen attributes their success to the international love affair people worldwide seem to have with Canada. "We ship all over the world. People love Canada and our business has been able to capitalize on the worldwide adoration people have for our fair land and the people who inhabit it." Miller expands, "We've done business with several fortune 500 companies, heads of state, expat celebrities and many Canadians who wish to share with their friends living abroad, a gift that exemplifies Canada."

Now seven years later, The Great Canadian Gift Company is elated to bring to Ancaster, a Great Canadian Gift Company Superstore. The store will feature Canadian designed clothing and furniture, Gift Baskets, Baby apparel and gifts, non-perishable Gourmet foods, jewellery, Canadiana Souvenirs, Home Decor, Bath and Spa, Kitchen Accessories and an eclectic mix of Canadian made crafts. The Grand Opening is slated for Friday December 2nd, 2011 at their new address, 1172 Wilson St. West, Ancaster. There will be entertainment, door prizes, giveaways and some super introductory offers. To accommodate as many as possible, they'll be keeping the doors open until 12 midnight. Tracy implores with enthusiasm, "We are extremely excited to be relocating and to bring to Ancaster, what we feel will be a uniquely Canadian shopping experience."

For those of you who frequent Blue Mountain in Collingwood, you'll find The Great Canadian Gift Company's sister store in the heart of the Village.
