The bright lights of Quesnel

What’s old is new again in downtown Quesnel

For the first time in 20 years, the lights on Willis Harper are shining bright.

Elden Garvin, Matthew Maglio, Brett Roberts and Candice Gibbs stood outside Willis Harper Home Hardware on Dec. 9, the first day the lights became active.

The Willis-Harper building was constructed in 1946.

“Over the years, the building has expanded vertically and horizontally to accommodate business growth,” the city of Quesnel’s website reads.

“While not in its original form, the building is a physical reminder of the people and businesses that shaped the development of Quesnel. The building is the anchor for commerce on Reid Street.”
