Celebrating Georges Market and Celebrations » 2019-Mar-01

George’s Market and Celebrations has been a staple in Thunder Bay for decades as a family run business. Established 58 years ago, the store is now on its second generation, owned and operated by Danny and Charmaine Thompson.

If you have the opportunity to meet the Thompsons, you will meet a kind and caring family who always welcome you with smiles on their faces. They are passionate about helping their community and have done incredible work for George Jeffrey Children’s Foundation and Centre.

Danny was instrumental in fundraising for the new building. He reached out and brought our community together to create a state-of-the-art building where children and youth now come to receive care in a comfortable environment.

After the building was completed, the Thompsons didn’t stop with their efforts. They have continued to support George Jeffrey by fundraising through their store including a Giving Christmas Trees initiative, holding donation boxes, and always promoting initiatives happening at George Jeffrey.

On behalf of the children, families, staff, and clinicians at George Jeffrey, we say THANK YOU to the Thompson family!
