After much deliberation and consultation, I have decided to temporarily shutter our retail store in Almonte. Quite frankly, we are a non-essential business with a large and fluid clientele, many of whom are in a vulnerable age bracket, and keeping our store open during these very uncertain coming days and weeks poses an unnecessary risk to both our customers and our staff. Even more so, when I consider that I have two asthmatics and an essential health-care worker in my own household.
Announcing our Famous Year-end Boxing Sale! I am delighted to announce the return of this annual event.
In addition to offering the deepest store-wide discounts in the coin business:
- We always have fresh new inventory available for our sale, not just the old stuff!
- We’re opening the entire weekend for our customers, and look forward to your joining us!
Best wishes for the holidays, and for a healthy and prosperous 2020!
Sean Isaacs, family and staff

The pure Silver medal, together with a small bursary, will be presented each year to a graduating student of Almonte & District High School who has chosen to pursue post-secondary studies in History or a related field.

A five-year tradition comes to an end this Saturday October 19th, with the final Almonte Zombie Walk for Hunger taking place at 2:00 pm.
Benefiting the Soi Dog Foundation, Country Cat Sanctuary, as well as our local Food Bank, I am delighted to once again serve as grand parade martial for the event.
With live musical entertainment during registration, and many prizes at the end for participants, we invite everyone to join us in making this final 2-kilometer stumble around the downtown core the best Zombie Walk ever! (Honestly, there’s no greater pleasure than freaking out Mill Street diners as they sit engrossed in conversation over their salads and hot-turkey plates!)
Hats off to Heather Gadbois for having made this a fun and material contribution to our local cultural landscape.
