Penhaligan’s Retirement

After 19 years in Business, Nancy and Philip Jardim have decided to take retail retirement.

From their beautiful red-brick shop at 10 East Mill, they purveyed to amateurs and professionals alike, a fine array of gourmet products and kitchen ware, assembled from around the globe.

Opening first in Fergus in 1994, they later moved to their East Mill location in Elora in 1998, and quickly gained a reputation for the breadth of their collection – Utensils, English & French pottery & china, Wusthof & Laguiole knives and many unique items not available elsewhere.

The inspiration for their shop came from an interest in cooking and the utensils used , which stemmed from Nancy’s Swiss training ,and also with Philip’s fascination with knives!
The name Penhaligan’s was decided for the shop because it reflects Nancy’s Cornish heritage.

Together, Nancy & Philip grew their business to become a destination shop for people from all over Ontario, and beyond. In addition, Philip served on the Executive of the Elora BIA for 4 years.

Much to their surprise, at the end of October, 2012, they received an unsolicited offer to purchase their location. After some negotiations, they agreed to a sale and decided to let this become their retirement.

“The last couple of years have been slow for us all here in Elora with the closing of the Elora Mill, so we look forward to better days with its re-opening, and wish you all a good year and continuing prosperity in Elora.”

The Penhaligan’s store is now closed. However, you can’t take it out of them! The couple continue to sell their wares on-line, via their website, at www.penhaligans.ca, and you can reach them at 519-846-2572.

We thank Philip for his work on the BIA and his tireless efforts to promote the shops on East Mill Street. We wish them both much success, happiness and relaxation in their hard-earned retirement!
