Nanaimo Store Is Closing

Jenny & Darryl Callewaert


When Jenny & Darryl retired to Vancouver Island, the last thing on their minds was looking for another business venture. However, three and a half years later, they have done just that and are the new owners of Dig This Nanaimo. As customers of Dig This, they fell in love with the uniqueness of the store, so it was just natural when the opportunity came about to purchase the Nanaimo Dig This franchise, to go for it. While they consider themselves to be “amateur keeners” in the gardening world, they are looking forward to meeting and learning from all the wonderful gardeners in Nanaimo and beyond. Their goal is to have some fun and grow Nanaimo together.

We’re sad to say our Dig This store in Nanaimo is closing soon. If you have gift certificates for Dig This Nanaimo, now is the time to get great deals as they are liquidating their inventory at discount.

We plan to re-open Dig This somewhere in the mid-Island as soon as possible, so stay tuned for news.
