Mayor Snow to Cut ribbon

Sandra Snow, Mayor of Kentville, to Cut Ribbon at
Grand Opening of Sable Shortbread

KENTVILLE, NS – March 2, 2020 – Sable Shortbread Company Ltd. (“Sable Shortbread”) is pleased to announce that Sandra Snow, Mayor of Kentville, will cut the ribbon at the grand opening celebration (the “Grand Opening”) of Sable Shortbread and that Kentville Town Crier will be present to announce the Grand Opening.
The ceremonial ribbon cutting for the Grand Opening will take place at 10:00 am on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at the store’s location in Kentville, Nova Scotia. Sable Shortbread is hosting a variety of events for its Grand Opening including a VIP invitation only event the evening before the ribbon cutting, swag bags for the first 25 customers on Grand Opening day, and more prizes and giveaways throughout the day.
Owners Lorraine Pike and her son and daughter, Duncan and Julia, are very pleased to hold this event to mark this special occasion of their first bricks and mortar store. Lorraine and Julia started the business in Vancouver, BC in 2014 and Duncan joined the business full time in 2018, as the family had decided it was time to grow the business. In late 2018 they decided to join family members on the East Coast and Sable Shortbread moved its operation from BC to Nova Scotia in 2019. Since opening the store in Kentville, Sable Shortbread has been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support it has received from the business community, elected officials and most of all, the community at large, who are supporting the business wholeheartedly. They want to express their thanks to all who have helped them get to this stage and invite everyone to join them all throughout March for their Grand Opening month.
The ribbon cutting will take place at 10 am on March 7. Details of all Sable Shortbread’s Grand Opening events can be found on Sable Shortbread’s website at
