Brooks Stationers Helps Families Spend Quality Time Together this Family Day!


It’s a scene that plays out all too frequently in contemporary society. People travel great distances to be with their family during the holidays, but end up glued to their high-tech toys. Luckily, Brooks Stationers can help you avoid the same fate this Family Day!

Starting today and running until February 24th, Brooks Stationers is offering 15% off their toys, games and puzzles. “We are encouragingfamilies to connect by enjoying some outdoor or indoor fun” said store owner Murray Denoudsten. “We specialize in toys, games and puzzles that encourage family fun, child development and imaginative play” he added.

And these are not products you will find in a mainstream big box store, either. Brooks Stationers has started a Toy Division called Moose Moose Games. Specializing in high-quality, educational toys, their goal is to encourage child development, imaginative play and – most importantly – having fun as a family.

Of course, the iconic Brooks retailer still carries the items that have made it a main-stay for generations of shoppers. Their physical storefront offers a fantastic selection of stationery and office products, greeting cards, inspirational gifts and signs. And from their digital copy center they provide design services, printing (forms, signs, banners and yes, posters!) as well as the latest in office furniture.

And like other savvy retailers such as 42nd Street Clothing and The Pink Porcupine, they have a successful online platform that connects them to customers across Western Canada. With warehouses in Calgary and Edmonton, boasts with over 14,000 competitively priced products; delivery is often overnight.

Murray and his team also play an important role in making Brooks and the Region of Newell a great place to live. Murray has been involved with the Brooks Town Center Revitalization Zone (also known as the BRZ) for the past 25 years. He is also a boy’s club leader, coordinator of the Growing Together Community Garden, a member of the local economic development advisory board, and spring soccer coach! Murray's wife Joyce is a local teacher and, along with Wendy from the store, they lead a local girl’s club.

Their philosophy is beautiful in its simplicity: “We feel it’s important to be involved and connected with the community.”

Now, as you begin our Family Day long weekend we’d like to leave you with a few fun facts: Brooks Stationers Ltd. was opened in 1964 by Henry and Nel Denoudsten in the building now occupied by The Clothes Line. Their son Murray has owned the business since 1992. Their current location is 228 - 2nd St. West. This was the first location of the Freson Bros. and later the Red Rooster.
