here’s nothing Ashley HomeStore likes better than supporting the community.
“We ran a fundraiser for breast cancer research in October, we called it Pinktober,” said store manager Grant Carriere, “and we raised $22,000 for the Northern Cancer Foundation in Sudbury. Now, we would like to help out the Sudbury Food Bank.”
Ashley HomeStores in Sudbury, Espanola and North Bay are independently owned and operated by Paul McQueen and his family, including daughter Becky, who is the store merchandiser, and son-in-law Carriere.
“Paul McQueen has been in the industry for over forty five years,” said Carriere, “and opened Ashley HomeStore seven years ago. We are a family-run business. We provide Sudbury, Espanola and the North Bay area with quality furniture, home accents and décor, at the best value.”
For December, the newlyweds (Grant and Becky were just married this past summer), have a new fundraiser in mind.
“This is our Home for the Holidays Event,” said Carriere. “This is the first year we have decided to go ahead and work with the food bank. It’s been a tough couple of years for everyone, and we thought this would be most helpful this year,” he explained. “We are donating a portion of our stores’ sales for the entire month of December to the Sudbury Food Bank this holiday season.”
Ashley HomeStore is offering customers the chance to personally donate as well.
“Starting December 5, customers who bring in a non-perishable food item or make a donation of $10 to the Sudbury Food Bank in one of our stores save the taxes on their purchases, and are entered to win one of three separate one thousand-dollar shopping sprees,” said Carriere.
Becky and Grant are thrilled with the Home for the Holidays event idea.
“We are excited to help the Sudbury Food Bank in ensuring that every person in our community has enough to eat,” emphasized Carriere.
