  • Very rude staff and they seem to hate visitors and travelers. Glared at us and acted with hostility when all we did was ask them polite questions. If they are such red necks then they should not be running this type of business in a tourist town. I would not recommend this store to anyone. I may have bought something if you hadn't been so rude to us, the revenue you probably desperately need now that there are restricted number of travelers visiting the town and going to your store. Let this be a lesson to you and all the other businesses out there that you cannot take customers for granted and think that there will be others because there might be a threat to your business such as the COVID-19.
  • Terrible. This company agreed to meet me and purchase First Nation handmade carved jewelry. I flew from Victoria to Calgary and shuttled 3 hours to lake Louise with a promise to meet in person. I called 30 minutes prior, to confirm meet up. Upon arrival I was informed the owner did not want to meet me . I was also told to leave my work without payment. i feel this is a scam. After observing the store, i realized the quality and quantity of products were minimal, low standard and did not match their website.
