Mont Echo is excited to announce the opening of our new Sea Buckthorn Interpretive Centre and Boutique!
The Interpretive Centre and Boutique is located at 70 Lakeside in the heart of Knowlton, Quebec – a popular tourist destination near our family farms. The Interpretive Centre will provide a wealth of information about Sea Buckthorn, while the Boutique will feature our high-quality natural, locally-made Mont Echo Bath & Body Sea Buckthorn skincare, gifts and gourmet products. Both the Interpretive Centre and the Boutique will be open year-round.
Opening a Boutique to showcase our products and other natural local products has been a dream of ours since we started the company. It gives us an opportunity to connect with our local community and put a face to Mont Echo, and will be the perfect place to meet and train Retailers, Wellness Service Providers and Sales Representatives. The Boutique will showcase our products, all made with our own 100% Canadian-grown Sea Buckthorn ingredients, extracted at our onsite processing facility by our dedicated team. Mont Echo products available at the Boutique will include our skincare and our gourmet products, including baked goods, sorbet, chocolates, tea and preserves. In addition, we’ve carefully selected several complementary local product lines to feature at our shop, including Credo bags, a line of eco-friendly reusable shopping bags designed and made in Montreal, and a line of handcrafted Sea Buckthorn soaps, made in Quebec City.
The decision to open a Sea Buckthorn Interpretive Centre adjoining the Boutique space was a natural one, driven by a need to educate consumers about the origins, uses and external and internal therapeutic benefits of Sea Buckthorn. The Interpretive Centre was designed by two of our founding members—one with a degree in graphic design, the other with a Masters in Museum and Gallery Studies. The design incorporates beautiful, bold graphics with informational text panels, and will even feature a full-size replica of a Sea Buckthorn tree!
The Interpretive Centre and Boutique will be opening Saturday, May 15, 2010, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
