This, That And Everything

Pipestone Flyer

As of October 10th, Millet really does have This That And Everything. Located at 5009 – 49 Ave in the old Fields location, owners Richard and Sabrina Jaffray-Barnes have realized their dream of a family business. The couple had always dreamt of a business that the whole family could be involved in. “This was something we’d thought about for a few years” says Richard, “we knew that now was the right time for it to happen.”

The catalyst for making the dream a reality was a diagnosis of Trigeminal Neuralgia for Sabrina. The family quickly grasped that one of the challenges of this condition was the rigid schedule of ‘normal’ 9-5 employment for Sabrina. “Some days are better than others,” acknowledges Sabrina. “I didn’t want to be sitting at home and feeling down, letting this get the better of me. With this business I have the support of my family and the flexibility that I need.”

The couple want this to be more than just a family business, they want This That And Everything to be a part of the community. “Our goal is to be involved in our community, fill needs where we can and make a difference where we can. This is what community means to us.”

Just as the name promises, the store has this, that, and everything. You’ll find everything from a brand new Kobo to the kitchen sink along with the taps to complete it.

“We wanted to fill the gap we saw in the merchandise available in Millet and make it possible to find things people were having to go out of town to find, “they explain.

Being parents, the Jaffray- Barnes understand that it’s not always easy to take your time browsing with little ones in tow. Wanting to be family friendly, there are plans for a kid’s corner for the little ones to relax and play in so parents can take their time and browse the shop.

A mix of new and gently used items with prices that are easy on the pocket book, the store currently carry’s hardware, housewares, toys, clothes and furniture .Always looking to expand what they offer, the Jaffray-Barnes have new inventory arriving weekly. Gently used items of any kind are always welcome. If you have anything that you’d like to rehome let them know.

Next time you think you’ll have to leave town to find what you need stop by or call 780-382-3004 and see if the store doesn’t have what you’re looking for. Store hours are Monday – Saturday 10am – 8pm and Sunday 12pm-4pm.
