For 124 years PG Towns & Sons General Store has stood at one of the 4 corners of the village of Douro Ontario. Four generations of the Towns family have run the shop, from the day of trading eggs for store credit to creating savvy social media campaigns to stay relevant, the store has remained a vibrant part of the community. It is becoming more difficult though, as subdivisions and big box stores are making it impossible for small independent, family run shops to survive. After more than a century in business, PG Towns has been forced to close its doors for good. What will happen to this community now that the heartbeat of the village is gone? And, in the battle between ever expanding corporate superstores versus locally run family businesses, the question remains; what do we really value?
