Although Robson Valley Home Essentials in McBride is closing their doors at the end of the day on Saturday June 19, 2021, much of the stock will still be available locally. Some items, such as cleaning products will be available on the shelves at Home Hardware where they will continue to be available. Other items, such as special food items, vitamins, oils and cards have been picked up by Welcome Home. Owner Fran Chiupka is excited to be able to continue providing these items to the people of McBride. The Essentials building has sold and the owners hope to open a new business in that location in the near future. /ANDREA ARNOLD
