Sasquatch sighting in Clearwater!

Something BIG is happening in the local business community

It’s true: the more things change, the more they stay the same. Just ask Dennis Greffard, who with wife Christine is transforming the namesake family business into something bigger.

Or at least with a bigger footprint.

Greffard’s & Greenscapes is now Bigfoot Trading Company – but with the same family behind it, the same exceptional service and a growing selection of the goods and services you want, locally.

Greffard’s & Greenscapes was founded simply as Greffard’s Saw Shop by Dennis’s father back in 1965, when it served the community as a saw and small engine repair shop. But as the forest industry evolved, so did Greffard’s.

Moving into outdoor recreation, work wear and then launching Christine’s bath and body line – the “Greenscapes” line-up – today, the bustling local business is thriving, and with the addition of offerings like its custom promotional shop, it was time for a new name, Dennis says.

Walking into the distinctive store today, shoppers will find the same diverse selection they’ve come to expect … and then some!

“We’re trying to address the market needs to help residents continue to be able to shop locally,” Dennis explains.

Local matters

As large multi-national companies promote online shopping as an “easier” option, Dennis emphasizes the importance of supporting local businesses that are invested in the local community.

“We work to provide products and services that aren’t being offered locally, allowing shoppers to find what they’re looking for affordably and right here at home,” Dennis says. “With their support, we’re also able to give back as much as we do – to schools, sports teams and community fundraisers – it’s one of the best things about ‘community.’”

What’s new in store?

Among the newest additions in store at Bigfoot Trading Company are the custom sign shop and custom engraving services, in addition to printing for t-shirts, jerseys and other offerings.

Coming this August – just in time for hockey camps – they’ll also be adding Blade King, allowing for skilled skate sharpening and hockey supplies.

Recognizing the growing interest in their more unique items, Bigfoot Trading also welcomes visitors to visit their online store, where they can order their favourite Clearwater products – Christine’s homemade soaps, Clearwater Cologne, Sasquatch Beard Oil and more – to their own home.

The large, 18-inch letters outside Clearwater’s new Bigfoot Trading Co. on Murtle Crescent say it all: Work. Play. Explore. Create. Visit them to learn more!
