At the foot of King Street sits Barbour’s General Store, originally brought to Saint John in 1967 by G.E. Barbour Company. Inside is a plethora of local curiosities, historic merchant wares, and modern retail items. Also housed here is a Visitor Information Centre and new this year, a Saint John Tour Desk … offering various tours to both visitors and locals. Stop by and book a tour to view our city from a different vantage; trolley tours, harbour cruises, walking tours, etc … all options now available to the Saint John locals and public, as well as visitors.
Also inside, find some interesting items to purchase such as locally created t-shirts, Ganong delicacies, Dulse from Slocum & Ferris, and other local branded merchandise. The back of the store houses ‘The Exchange,’ a self-serve coffee and tea bar stocked with Java Moose Coffee and 10 different King Cole teas from Barbour’s, as well as delicious oatcakes from our own Cape Breton Oatcakes Society.
