Jean, Yvette and Freya.

Jean Evans started working at the store in May 1973; she dedicated 41 years of service before retiring in August 2014. Jean missed her customers so much, she came back to the team part-time in November 2021. She proudly serves the community as part of the hardware team.

Yvette Erickson, Jean’s daughter, started at the store in December 1995. Yvette has worked in hardware/houseware and is currently part of the cashier team.

Freya Erickson, Jean’s granddaughter and Yvette’s daughter, joined the cashier team in Aug. 2023.

Over the years, Canadian Tire has had many family members who have worked together but this is the first three generational team. It’s employees like this that bring to mind the phrase “community store.” We celebrate these three ladies for enriching the customer experience! Some customers have become friends that stop by to say “hi” whenever they’re shopping. If you happen to come across these ladies while shopping, please say hello!
