Current owner Lisa Foottit took over the store in May 2021. Lisa went to high school in Quesnel, then life took her away for many years. In 2016 Lisa and her family returned to the town she has always considered her hometown. Lisa loves the small town feel of Quesnel. The people are friendly and community oriented. Stepping into the role of owner of Mama C’s Gifts & Giggles was a dream come true. After 10 ½ years in the insurance world, she returned to her retail roots. The store has long been a family favourite for any gift giving needs. Both her husband Steve and daughter Sarah (a former Quesnel Ambassador for 2020) can be found occasionally helping in the store.
When not in the store, Lisa likes to kayak and bike in the summer or just hang out with her house full of cattle dogs and 1 spoiled kitten. Family and friends are so important. And, if you have been in the store you know Lisa believes strangers are “just friends she hasn’t met yet”. Holding fast to the amazing reputation set out by former owner Cheryl, Lisa wants to see Mama C’s Gifts & Giggles stay one of Quesnel’s favourite shopping destinations. “With all the amazing stores in Quesnel, I am honoured to be a part of the business community. I hope to see all businesses in Quesnel flourish to keep our amazing town strong,” she says. “Cheryl created an amazing store, which I hope will continue to provide customers with an amazing shopping experience every single time.”
If you are downtown, stop in and say hi to Lisa and the team. If you have a four legged friend, they are also welcome to say hello. Jake, the Bergatto, came by and had to be in the photo. Remember, strangers really are just friends we have yet to meet!
