The emphasis is a little more hockey oriented but one sports card shop in British Columbia is in the same boat as his American colleagues.
The sports memorabilia business is a passion for Shawn Carreck. It has to be when you’re based in western Canada city of about 70,000 and need every last customer to survive.
He’s based in Chilliwack, B.C. That’s Canucks country and as you might expect, the NHL and minor league hockey are part of what drives sales.
The shop is a bit of a novelty, though, and the local newspaper came away impressed with the business side of things and Carreck’s devotion.
