Purvis Gallery & Framing Selling, Jayne DeRoy Retiring

After 38 years downtown, and three generations of owners Purvis Gallery & Framing will be sold. Jayne DeRoy will be retiring after taking over the business in 2000. 

“I have really enjoyed helping my customers over the years to preserve their special keepsakes, and it’s been a real pleasure to help people put beautiful things on their walls. I’ve enjoyed my time downtown and all the activities over the years that have connected me with my downtown neighbours.  The downtown is truly a great place to have a business, and a great place to shop! I’m looking forward to introducing the new owners to everyone when the time comes.” – Jayne DeRoy

Thank you Jayne for being a part of downtown, being involved as a past BIA board member, integrating projects like Art Matters, and for being an integral part of the development and growth downtown. Congratulations!
