Press Release   March 13 2016

Carl & Rita Hulme started Blimeys British Store & Gift Shop in April 2014 in beautiful downtown Harrow, Ontario.  Since then the store has gone through one expansion and is now expanding again. This new expansion will add a further 600 sq ft of retail space. The renovation is expected to be complete by the end of March.

This will allow us to carry a more varied selection of foods such as Haggis, Black Pudding, and Sausages & Bacon along with our already large selection of imported foods and Pies.

We are also adding more giftware from Britain including more leather goods, British jewellery, and a larger selection of sweaters from Ireland. We are adding more selection of our Canadian jewellery line, Kameleon. The expansion will also allow us to better display our current products such as Emma Bridgewater, Victoria Eggs and other gift items.


Blimey’s is proud to have won the 2015 Biz X award for the “County Biz Worth The Drive” category.  We would like to thank all our customers who showed their support for us and voted us into the winners circle.  Our customers have made our 2015 fantastic and we are looking forward to an even better year in 2016!
