Brampton Newfoundland store up for sale as owners set to retire
Published February 14, 2023 at 12:20 pm
The owners of Brampton’s biggest Newfoundland goods retail store are getting ready to retire, but the much-loved Newfie shop may not be closing for good as the store is up for sale.
Freezerland NFLD Inc. is located at 8 Strathearn Ave. in Brampton and carries Newfoundland brands like Purity, Fraser Farms and Tunnock’s, along with traditional Newfoundland foods including salt beef, cod tongues, Newfoundland savory, schruncions, and balogna.
Billed as Ontario’s “largest Newfoundland retail store,” Freezerland was bought by co-owners Darrin and Amanda Osmond, and Amanda’s sister Cassie 10 years ago and has been a local haunt for Newfoundlanders in Ontario looking for a taste of home. But the owners are set to retire and Freezerland’s last day of business is March 31, but the store is up for sale and the owners are taking meetings with interested parties.
“We sincerely thank you for your support over the years and will truly miss most of you,” Freezerland said on its website when announcing the closure.
Freezerland has hosted traditional Newfoundland Jig’s Dinners (a traditional salt beef dinner with boiled cabbage, potato, pease pudding, and more), East Coast Kitchen Parties, and has also featured the work of Newfoundland artists.
The owners say parties interested in buying the business can contact Freezerland by calling 905-791-4983 to set up a meeting.
