Letter to the editor: Great service

A letter complimenting the service and selection available at Willis Harper.


When you walk into this store, it feels like you’re walking into a family reunion, everyone knows you, everyone greets you, at least us ole timers who have been using Willis Harper most of our life feel this way.

Maybe the young ones or the newcomers to town just don’t realize, sox here’s my friendly reminder to them.

I’ve known for many years, so why do I keep forgetting, if I can’t find it anywhere, go to Willis Harper, I know I’ll find it there.

I think it’s computerized in our brains that all the big chain stores carry everything, not so.

Have been searching for a set of salt water pearls, double or triple strand, not to be found in town and I thought I would have to finally go out of town. Guess what, there they were waiting for me in that oh so wonderful gift department at my favourite store in town. Yes, Willis Harper.

The simple fact applies to all the store’s departments, not just the gift department.

What you are frantically searching for is in that store, either upstairs or downstairs on in a back corner shelf, but you can bet, Marvin or Bruce, if you ask them, know exactly where it is.

No, I am not a paid employee, just a very happy customer.
