Canadian retailer setting up shop in Niagara Falls

A new store is opening in Niagara that will make gardeners and hobbyists happy.

Lee Valley, which bills itself as a proudly Canadian retailer, will set up shop in the plaza on Morrison Street in Niagara Falls.

The largest store in the plaza has been sitting empty since Foodland closed its doors.

The store will feature a 6,400 square foot showroom showcasing its unique line of woodworking, gardening, hardware and home products.

Lee Valley also sells what it calls a growing assortment of kitchen must haves and specialty gadgets.

The store is expected to open late this spring.
