A must-visit when in Chester - Pat and Angela welcome you to stop in to our eclectic gift shop which has over 60% local product, lots of souvenirs, jewellery and general giftware! Great prices and Awesome selection! What makes us a little bit different at the Emporium is that we rent spaces within our shop to over 20 local craftspeople so that you always have a great mixed selection of products made locally! Please visit our Facebook page - TheVillageEmporiumChester - to find lots of photos of new items as they arrive. We are open 7 days a week from mid-April to Christmas Eve. In the winter we still attempt to be open Thursday to Sunday if the weather will allow. We look forward to seeing you in the wonderful little village of Chester, Nova Scotia.

Interesting array of giftware to be found. Friendly staff. One thing I noticed, for a tourist shop, I give them credit for not overpricing things. That's a rarity.

This is a shop with a wide variety of books, crafts and local kitsch. You may well find something you like.
