We planned to start this company before COVID-19 was a thing.
We incorporated our business the week before Toronto got locked down.
It’s been a challenging year for everyone and a tough year to get going with a new business. While demand has been strong, getting inventory and getting established with kids at home and strict restrictions made life interesting to say the least. But hey, who doesn’t love a challenge right?
We are so grateful for your support and for trusting us with your gifting needs. We are committed to giving back to our community and in our first year of business we could not be prouder to have donated over $4,500 to non-profit organizations helping those in need. Our goal is to double this for our second year.
We have made it our goal to source as many products from Canadian, women-owned businesses as we can. We are gathering the data so we can share how we did in our first year with this goal and set more specific targets for our second year, stay tuned!
We are currently reinvesting to grow our business by having our website professionally re-built (launching next week with a full Mother’s Day collection!!) and building our team to serve you better.
Thank you for your support of our small business, thank you for trusting Caribou Gifts to say “I Caribou You” to those you appreciate most — it means the world to us and allows us to continue supporting other small businesses and the community we live and work in.
