A Community Fixture
Icky’s Variety is owned by wife and husband team Kelly MacNaughton and Enrique Espinoza and was opened more than 10 years ago, to serve the local community. It has grown by leaps and bounds ever since, and now has customers from all over Ontario.
The goal of the convenience store is to provide everything the community needs under one roof. So not only will you find snacks that you’d expect from a variety store, but you’ll also find groceries, clothing, jewellery, Native art, sunglasses and even bedding. Chances are, if you need it, you’ll be able to find it at Icky’s!
It has become a favourite spot for locals, tourists and migrant workers to visit because the owners speak English and Spanish. The business stays engaged with the community by running contests and donating to causes, and it also hosts customer appreciation days.
In case you were wondering, the store is named after a Norfolk Terrier that Kelly adopted in Texas. It’s also an easy word to remember!
CUSTOMER SERVICE ABOVE ALL
Not only is Icky’s a variety store and grocery store to cover all your needs, but it’s also a place you know you’ll be treated with respect. You can expect a smile when you walk through the door, and there’s always someone ready to help you if you need it.
The staff is knowledgeable and knows the products, and can help you find the perfect item or gift you’re looking for.
