After 25 years in business at Josie’s in downtown Wiarton, I have finally realized my dream of opening a 2nd store. I took the plunge and rented the space and in 6 weeks, with the help of my family and friends, we opened on June 30th, 2018.

I’ve called my new store “Symon Says” and it is really a love letter to our wonderful town, its history and the role my family has proudly played.
 

My Great, Great Grandfather, William, born in Scotland in 1837, immigrated to Erin Township, Wellington County in 1854. He married in 1860 and had 7 children. In 1878 they moved to Wiarton and opened a general store “W. Symon & Sons” in what is now Greyfair Furniture. This store was run by his son, James, and then later, as a ladies fashion store under grandson, Kenneth Symon. William’s two other sons owned a menswear side of the business in a location down the street and it continued in the family for a number of years as well. My dad, Forbes Symon became a partner of Ward Mallett Chartered Accountants (now known as BDO) and had his first office on the main street of Wiarton in 1967.


That makes me the 5th generation of the Symon family to be in business in Wiarton, I’m proud to bring the Symon name back to main street!
 

You’ll find us at what was formerly Bluebird Flowers, across from the Royal Bank. Symon Says is a gift and gallery shop that is specializing in mostly made in Canada, and many items created closer to home in Grey/Bruce.

 

Buying made in Canada goods seems important now more than ever. It’s been fun finding all of the fabulous inventory that’s made by creative Canadians. From Newfoundland Salt to BC Haida art, jewellery from Quebec and many talented artisans right in our back yard.

 

We hope you will think of us when you are trying to find the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, house warming...or just a little something to say thanks. And remember Symon Says browsers are always welcome!
