Favreau is Nutters’ longest-serving franchisee and the original owner of the Prince Albert store. She said the relationships she has built with her suppliers are another reason for her success over the years.
“I know for a fact that the other Nutters stores weren’t as well supported as I was by these suppliers. They’ve just been so generous, it’s just very humiliating.
On the Melfort side, owner Julie Lacroix is impatiently awaiting the day of the festivities. She’s owned the Melfort store for six years now, but the store has been in the town for 36 years.
She said she enjoyed every minute she spent owning the franchise, knowing she had the support of other business owners.
“The way we’ve been able to interact with other business owners has always been good. For the city of Melfort, we find that we are very well received by other merchants. We strive to watch over each other and welcome each other. It feels good to be part of the business community in Melfort.
Both locations will offer pop-up shops and local vendor demos from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will also be prizes, treats and a BBQ at the Melfort store hosted by the Northeast SPCA.
Favreau and Lacroix point out that Natural Factors products will be offered at 40% off to commemorate the anniversary.
