She feels confident about running a business in Hagensborg and is proud to offer a service that contributes to her growing community. Her store is located in the heart of Hagensborg. It has an amazing curb side appeal, which is easy since the Bella Coola Valley is so beautiful and inviting. And, she jokes, her boss is awesome too.
Abra loves Hagensborg and the surrounding Bella Coola Valley for the friendly people and the magnificent natural beauty. In a small community, people are able to really get to know one another and Abra appreciates that, "There is a certain comfort in knowing everyone looks out for one another." Abra says she loves to garden, play basketball, slow-pitch, hike and spend time cooking for her friends and family.
Abra believes that the residents of the Bella Coola Valley understand the importance of supporting local businesses. “Shopping locally is what keeps our community an attractive place to live,” said Abra. She appreciates all the local stores and services available in the valley, from the great selection of local books and art at Kopas Store to the “best paninis ever" at the Little Nook Café .
