Ernie’s is known for a positive relationship with its staff and community. Darrell explains “We’ve always believed in being an active citizen of the community. It’s enabled us to grow with it.”

From hockey to bikes, curling to fashion, from skates to racquets, footwear to clothing, if its sports or sporting related – it’s probably here at Ernie’s.
