Dear Customers,

We hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. It was awesome to see so many turkeys and capons heading out our doors knowing that they would be the star of the show that weekend.

Now we are excited for another type of shopping. Dare we say it?

Early Christmas shopping is so much fun. Herma and Gordon have been very busy filling our shelves and tables just so in a way that exudes a special sort of magical feeling. Be sure to stop by for some fun shopping along with stocking up on all your favourite gourmet groceries.

What’s more? We have a special guest coming!

This Saturday at Herma’s…

Knibble Cheese Knife


How is it possible?

Hard Cheese – Sharp Plastic Blade slices even the hardest of cheeses

Soft Cheese – Barbed Blade creates air pockets so cheese does not stick to blade.

Spreads – Rounded edge of blade spreads without tearing bread, and because its plastic, scrapes sides of container without scratching.

Small Fork on tip of knife makes serving a pleasure without having to touch food.
