First Flakes Snow opened in 1989…
Steve was as of yet unmarried, and invested his nest egg into opening the store. There were many long and cold nights that he and his Siberian Husky, Flurry, slept cozy in warm blankets in the shop, doing their best to keep each other warm! Flurry obviously had the advantage with all of that warm fur!
Over the years, the business expanded to include more and more options, gear, and services for all of the town’s needs, and eventually Flurry was joined by Steve’s wife and family. Sadly, Flurry has passed on, but her memory lives on in the hearts of our long-time customers, who would regularly come in to say hello.
Flurry was something of a local celebrity! She was regularly seen on tv and in local media. People would come from all over to say hello, and Flurry loved all the affection and attention from her beloved neighbors. Flurry may have passed on, but her memory and likeness still fill the store with warmth and friendliness.
