The store is a heritage building, under the Ontario Heritage Act. It's a busy spot and people arrive in cars, or on horse, and pop in for mail or sundries. You can see the original wicket, preserved from various iterations. It is one of those buildings with the original wooden floors.
Inside, there’s a friendly cat named General, afghans and assorted handcrafts, vintage screws and nails, a shelf of second-hand books for trade, local honey and eggs, and jams and pickles made by Pignal’s mother, Dorothea Bendall, who sometimes runs the post office counter, although Sylvie retains the title of “postmistress.”
