The famous question: who is Poor David, why is he poor and why is that your store name?! The answer: owner, Karrie Peace, also the owner of Heavenly Outhouse in Cochrane, was offered the opportunity to take over the store space right next to Heavenly Outhouse, which is maintained by her husband, David. He paints, puts in new floors, hangs our art, changes light bulbs and even makes us custom shelving...Poor David! She promised if she was able to expand her business in to another store , it would have no other name than "Poor David's".
Poor David's has since become the go-to spot for fun and unique products of all kinds, especially the best gifts for anyone on your list (even if it's a self-gift)! Not only is our little gift shop a favourite in Alberta, but since opening our online shop, we've been shipping fun items all over Canada and even as far as the UK!
Exciting news! Poor David's just opened its THIRD location in June 2021 in Downtown Salmon Arm!! All the same shopping fun with some better scenery and warmer weather. So make sure you check out our newest location during your summer vacay! And of course, don't forget about the naughty corner ;)
