The store sells all types of clothing except shoes. But last fall when Lyubov was on a buying trip to Europe, she came across an incredible deal on kids sneakers. She has now imported 11,000 pairs of brand new shoes from Vienna, Austria, and they are cool. The container took five months to arrive. The shop is too small for the massive sale of these fabulous shoes and so Lyubov will host a sale at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre, 2170 Harvey Ave., on March 9 and 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily in the conference area of the hotel. Sizes range from US 1:1.5: 2: 2.5: 3: and 3:5 for ages about four to 12 years old, perfect for your own kids or grandkids. The brand of the shoes is Europe’s Pepperts and Kinder Sneeker. All the shoes are priced at only $15 per pair, and if you buy two you will get one pair free.

Located in Lake Country for the past 14 years, Ear Gear is a company that manufactures a product that protects hearing instruments. Owned and operated by founder and president Mark Rosal, the product was invented for his daughter Shameera. After she received the hearing aids, Shameera was continually misplacing them. The solution was Ear Gear, an acoustically transparent spandex sleeve with a durable locking clip and stretchy cord. Not only does Ear Gear protect against loss, it also provides added protection against sweat, dirt, moisture, wind noise and chafing. Ear Gear has helped over 500,000 hearing instrument wearers and is sold worldwide by hundreds of audiology clinics as well as by Ear Gear on their website www.gearforears.com.
