Our Story

In the fall of 1993, we opened our first retail store in Glen Abbey, Oakville.  It was 700 sq. ft.  About 4 years after that, we opened another branch in Hamilton, expanded our Oakville location to almost 6000 sq. ft. and a few years later, opened our third location in St. Catharines, Ontario.  We ran our three locations for 10 to 15 years, but due to staffing issues, we closed our Hamilton and St. Catharines locations in 2009 and 2013 respectively.  Our Oakville location is still thriving and in fact, we are serving second generation of our customers.  Our customers have come to expect the best selection of Teaching Resources, Classroom Decorations, Educational Games, Puzzles, Workbooks, Flash Cards, Arts & Crafts supplies, Stationary, Building Toys, etc.and the fact majority of our customers have been with us for 5 years or more, we take great comfort in knowing that they still have confidence in us, when it comes to educational resources for their students or their own children.  We would welcome you to come and explore our store for all your educational needs.  In 2018 we celebrated our 25 years in business!
