About Our Great Staff

Staff at Lakeview Market are always ready to chat and have a laugh with customers, bag and carry out, or even deliver your groceries if you need us to. Shirley, Doris, Evelyn, Niki and Barb Farris make up our team of full-time cashiers that are the friendliest in town.
Ed Desjardins is the main man at Lakeview Market but when it comes to special orders Chris Mackeldon is the guy to help with your request.
