It was exciting to watch the construction of the new Brome Lake Ducks building and to learn that the boutique will be opening in early October, hopefully for Thanksgiving.

The store will continue to offer the same duck products, recipes and related ingredients, but also an enhanced selection of gourmet offerings.

There will also be duck recipe tastings on weekends and an interpretation centre where visitors can learn all about the breeding, hatching and raising of Pekin ducks. Gift baskets will also be available for both individuals and companies.

For those who are bicycle enthusiasts, you will be able to leave your car for the day in their parking area, charge your electric car and cycle off to explore the surrounding countryside.

Employees are waiting with anticipation, for not only the opening of the boutique but to move into their new offices. An official opening is scheduled for November.
