She knew she could fill that niche.
ViVa Valeur will specialize in what Valorie calls “casual dressy clothing lines and active wear,” the likes of Buffalo, Silver, MPG, Rapz (made right here in Canada) and Tango Mango. There’ll even be some pricier choices, like the European Carré Noir.
Valorie left her family in Ontario in 1999 when she moved to Alberta and married an Albertan. But three years ago, he was killed in a tragic car accident, and she decided to come back east to family supports.
Visiting a friend in Bobcaygeon, she fell in love with the village (doesn’t everyone?) and decided to open a business here. The rest will soon be history.
ViVa Valeur will have its grand opening on Sunday, May 1, so be sure to join Valorie and friends for the festivities.
