The History of Our Location
The rich architecture dating back from 1909 was carefully restored while updating the location to create a warm and inviting space for Ed to meet with his clients.
Ed, along with his wife Jackie purchased the St. Catharines location in 2007 and quickly began renovations in 2008.
The doors officially opened in 2009.
The decor and ambiance is a warm and inviting feel.
We welcome you to visit.
