Central Emporium Inc.
Tina has owned and operated Central Emporium since 2011. “We are a retail store that provides children and baby accessories, new age wellness products and all of your bedding needs,” said Tina. At Central Emporium customers will find a large variety of bedding products such as pillows, sheet sets, mattress protectors, quilts, duvets and covers. They stock everything you may need for babies and children such as feeding accessories, swaddling blankets, nursing pillows, toys, shoes, bath accessories and beautiful gifts for moms too.
The staff at Central Emporium take the time to get to know the products they sell and the needs of the customers. “I love being able to interact with customers in a positive way,” said Tina.
Tina is proud of the ‘zen-like’ atmosphere in the new age section of Central Emporium. “People come in feeling the stress and pressure of their daily routines and leave satisfied, feeling relaxed, refreshed and more present,” said Tina.

Tina has called Fort St. John home since 1970 and is happy to have watched the community grow up into the active and friendly community it is today. She enjoys that Fort St. John is easy to get around in and that so many of her relatives and long-time friends live nearby.
Tina likes to golf and play soccer and enjoys being active on the community forest trails. There are lots of great small businesses in town and Tina recommends visiting them periodically. "You'll always get better, more personalized service in a small, locally owned business," said Tina. As a small business owner herself, Tina feels supported by the other small retail owners in the area. She loves being self-employed and enjoys the freedom and flexibility that being a business owner allows.
