We're both excited and honoured to be featured in CBC News on our recent success stocking Aurora Heat™ warmers in Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) stores in Winnipeg.
What follows is a few of our favourite quotes from the full article published by CBC News.
- "When Dragon launched Aurora Heat three years ago she was following in her family's fur trapping and tailoring legacy. The symmetry of the Hudson's Bay Company, so much a part of Northern history, now carrying her fur products is not lost on Dragon." -CBC News
- "My grandfather, my great grandfather on my mother's side, worked for the Bay. They either worked as bookkeepers or shop managers and they were all trappers so they [HBC] brought their furs. The economy of the North—the traditional economy—started with trapping." -Brenda Dragon President & Founder
- "Some people think that business is about getting rich but I actually think small business is a way of serving and doing good things and solving problems." -Brenda Dragon, President & Founder
Thank you to CBC News for this recognition and HBC for carrying our warmers at one of their Winnipeg locations.
