NOVO Dental Centre is all about supporting local business and when a business has such an interesting history, it makes it even more satisfying. Clayburn Store was built in 1911 and opened for business in 1912, operated by Reuben Cooper and T.F Seldon. Mr. Cooper continued to operate the store with his wife after Mr. Seldon left to open up the Clayburn Station Store. Everything was sold in the store from clothing, farm equipment, insurance to canned goods. In 1939 tragedy struck when two youths shot Reuben in the chest, killing him, while robbing the store. Mrs. Cooper and her son, Jack, operated the store until they sold it in 1974.
Bryan and Patricia Haber purchased the store in 1987 but it was in terrible disrepair. Luckily they saw past that and after 4 ½ years of re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-plastering and re-painting they created something wonderful (even using three extra solid-wood doors from upstairs, laid on their sides, with century-old red Douglas Fir planks on top to make the front counter)!!
For over twenty years Clayburn Village Tea Shop has offered delicious baked desserts, made to order sandwiches on fresh bread, famous daily soup & savory cheese plates. The warm environment has become a favourite among locals and tourists alike, who enjoy the wholesome fare made from family recipes.
Bryan and Patricia take great pride in offering a vast selection of specialty foods from all over Europe & North America. Their unique products are sourced from buying trips that the Haber’s take twice a year. They love to provide the best specialty delights for cooking, entertaining and gifts. Clayburn Village Store houses over 800 different varieties of candy both nostalgic & International. It’s fun just to wander and reminisce!!
