Loving Small Businesses This Valentine’s Day

Express your love for your significant other, friends, furry friends or even show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day. Invest Grande Prairie and the City of Grande Prairie are proud to have many local businesses making beautiful and delicious Valentine’s Day gifts right here at home. We visited a few of them last month to learn what Grande Prairie shoppers can expect to find in their stores ahead of the day of love on February 14.


Beautiful Edible Art

Shade Tree Chocolate Studio is “Creating moments worth remembering” by crafting artisan chocolates with an artistic twist. Whether your loved one likes nostalgic candy and chocolate, or you want to impress them with a piece of editable art, you’ll find unique one-of-a-kind chocolates at Shade Tree Chocolate Studio.

The Studio is offering 15-piece and 24-piece Valentine’s Day Boxes, available for pre-order through their website.

Salty not Sweet

Don’t let their name fool you, Beaverlodge Butcher Shop has had a location in Grande Prairie for four years. Beaverlodge Butcher Shop’s hottest selling item for Valentine’s Day is their hand-crafted Beef Jerky Roses.

Beaverlodge Butcher Shop says the most impressive gift of love was a woman who bought a whole bouquet of Beef Jerky Roses for her significant other.

They not only have Beef Jerky Roses, but they also can create customized gift baskets from any products from the store.

Visit Beaverlodge Butcher Shop at 10635 W Side Dr #101.


Boutique Bouquets

At Petals + Posies, they handpick each unique bouquet and believe “each arrangement is as unique as the beautiful people who receive them.”

When you buy a bouquet from Petals + Posies, there is a little extra love put into each bouquet, with the mission of lifting people up when they receive one.

Petals + Posies has a variety of bouquets to choose from or order a customized arrangement with their favourite colours and aesthetic.

The team at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory says that there is something for everyone, and every budget. They not only have the perfect piece of chocolate for your romantic partner, but great options for kids as well. You’ll find all the kids’ favourites, like heart-shaped chocolate suckers, Valentine’s Day themed candy apples and other specialty treats at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
