To provide Christ-honouring product that will meet spiritual needs in our community.
Our store was established in 1939 in Victoria at the corner of Douglas and View Streets. The original owner, Miss Frances Davis, sold the store to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hamilton in September of 1945. The Hamiltons operated the business in downtown Victoria for 30 years, moving its location to Fort Street, then to Johnson at Broad St.
In 1974 the store was purchased by Don and Judy Easton, who expanded the Johnson Street location. In 1982 they moved to Pandora St., across from Central Baptist Church. A move to Cook St. at Yates took place in August of 1987. Most recently a new location has opened at 3090 Nanaimo St., across from Mayfair Mall - behind Dodd's Furniture. Beautiful premises, expanded retail space, adequate parking, and a more central location provide Victoria clientele a great shopping experience.
Further business expansion took place in 1989 when a location was opened in the city of Nanaimo. A site in Duncan was added in 1993 and closed June 2015, after 22 years.
Don and Judy Easton -- Originally teachers in the Victoria area, Don and Judy bought the store in Victoria in 1974. While not involved as much in daily operations, they continue to provide leadership and direction to the business.
Mike and Melanie Easton -- Mike has worked in the store since the age of 11. After completing his BA in Economics at UVIC, he began full-time in the business in 1984. He now provides an umbrella of leadership as overall manager of both stores. While still maintaining a role of full-time wife and mother to 4 children, Melanie has returned to the store to support Mike full-time.
