A Little Store with a Big Heart
McBurney Junction first opened its doors in the old Downtown of Langley back in 1998. It was a quaint little store that focused on reclaimed fir and custom made iron furniture by local artisans. It was a popular destination for local shoppers and its future looked promising. In 2000, Karla was walking into the store one day and saw a help wanted sign on the window and thought it would be a fun place to work. She was hired and began her short career as a McBurney Junction employee. It was short because within a month, Karla asked the current owner if she wanted to sell and when she said "yes", Karla, her best friend Nikki and Karla's husband, Reid became the proud new owners of McBurney Junction.
A lot has changed since then. The store has grown from a quaint little country store to a 2-storey lifestyle store with an upstairs furniture galley, two jewelry shop-in-shops housing two of the hottest jewellery brands available on the market today (Pandora and Thomas Sabo) and some of the most sought after brands in the world of home decor and retail giftware. What hasn't changed is Karla and Nikki's passion for retail and dedication to the store. They both still work full time, are passionate about bringing in new collections and keeping the store fresh and ever-changing.
