I have been a Mainstreet member since I was 14 and opened my first account at the Mt Brydges branch where my mom worked. When I was looking to purchase the business, a VP, as well as my Mainstreet advisor spent a lot of time with me to look at the businesses financial statements and provide advice and insight. They have continued to support me through the years and are always available to talk. I love that when I walk in to any Mainstreet branch the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and happy to help. There is a real personal feel.

Wine enthusiasts can buy the wine kits to make at home or make it on-site at the store. “Purchasing this quality of wine elsewhere would run around $20 or more per bottle, here our wines average somewhere between $4-$6 per bottle. The savings can really add up, especially with people being home and drinking more wine since the pandemic began” shares owner Jason Kaspersma, who has owned this local business himself since 2018, with the local-business operating for over 20 years.

“It’s been incredible owning the business; I have the ability to grow the business while balancing my homelife. I can put in the long hours if needed and still be involved and there for my family and other activities. The family can spend time with me at the store or I can shuttle them to activities or friends around town.”
