Greystones is the visitor and camper supply shop operated by the Friends of Bon Echo Park. All proceeds from the store support the Friends’ activities, such as sustainability and awareness projects within the Park.
Greystones is open 10am to 5pm on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until June 23 when it opens daily until Labour Day.
Exciting changes have taken place at Greystones Store!
Over the winter we have created more efficient use of our space. As a result, we are now able to offer new and innovative product lines. In keeping with camper and park guest expectations, we are now stocking camper requested items, featuring Coleman and Watkins products and many more. Hikers will be especially pleased with the lightweight protection products we have brought in.
We heard you when it comes to purchasing your boat tickets. Instead of lining up inside Greystones, an exterior service window has been installed on the lake side of the store. The boat ticket window will be open from 10am until 2pm. Since there are now two tills, customers on the inside and out will receive quicker service.
Over the season, new product lines will be introduced. We’ve already received new art designs and art work on our clothing lines. With the celebration of our country’s 150th birthday, Canada 150 items will be available.
In early July we will introduce our new Bon Echo Explorer series. These high-quality items depict Mazinaw Rock and the meeting place at the Narrows; practical keepsakes that are Bon Echo specific.
We also have special products coming in August to celebrate the anticipated arrival of fall colours. The warmth of the autumn experience has been reflected in our palette choices.
Throughout the season there will be affordable children and family games and activities available. And those with a sweet-tooth will be happy to know that our delicious confectionary treats will continue to be offered.
Plus there are now HipPOS in the Park! We have installed this state of the art inventory tracking and sales system. We will now be able to tell you if we have an item in stock in your size without racing through the backroom. We will also be able to tell you when an out-of-stock item might next be available. And with this system’s installation, we can now accept Ontario Park gift certificates.
