At Northern Emporium we are also putting our best foot forward and would ask that you use the following guidelines when visiting the shop:
Just inside the door we have a hand sanitizer station for your use. The awesome hand sanitizer we have acquired for complimentary use is made by the Elora Distilling Company and is 80% alcohol. The Elora Distilling company is also owned by Mark and Marty, also known locally as The Uncles!
We are expecting to stock the 500ml bottles soon! If you are interested in purchasing some for home use please speak to our sales staff. 500ml bottles will be available for $19.99+hst
As per the Algoma Public Health Unit, wearing a non-medical mask or face covering is required when inside public places. Please bring your own when you visit. Our staff will also mask-up when you stop in.
If you are in need of a reusable mask or face covering, we have them available at Northern Emporium. A variety of styles and sizes are located at the hand sanitizing station.
All this hand washing is great, the resulting dry skin… not so much.
Chapped, dry, cracked, peeling skin can be very uncomfortable and even painful when it gets extreme. All natural lotion bars can provide relief and help repair your damaged skin.
Made with simple, natural ingredients and high quality essential oils, you can moisturize your tender bits several times a day.
Coconut oil helps to repair, beeswax to protect and avocado butter to moisturize your damaged skin.
Lotion bars are simple to use. Just warm the bar between your hands for several seconds and rub in the melted blend to the areas you need. Wait a few minutes for the lotion to soak in and enjoy immediate moisturizing without greasy residue.
Natural un-scented- no added fragrance or essential oil
Mango Papaya or Sensually Relaxing- fragrance oil added just for a soft pleasant scent.
Chamomile- essential oil that helps to repair and restore your skin.
Peppermint- essential oil that helps with circulation and can perk you up.
All lotion bars are made in small batches to ensure best quality and freshness.
Fresh batches of bars are available at Northern Emporium. Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 2-4.

One of the most frustrating things about living in the north is the lack of locally available products and variety to choose from. Many companies are making online shopping so easy and online ordering has become a regular way of doing business for many people in our area .
Our shop and staff have recently committed to helping get your orders to you. Currently, we are set to receive small packages for local delivery on behalf of UPS and Canpar twice a week. We receive, sort and deliver to your home. If we miss you, we will leave you a note and hold your parcels for pick up at the Northern Emporium, 210 Winnipeg St.
