Long-Time Business Owners, Frank And Lisa Winkel Retire

Espanola is bidding good-bye to a family that has been a vital part of Espanola for over 20 years.
Frank and Lisa Winkel have been the owner-operators of The Your Independent Grocers store in Espanola for the past 24 years, but have officially retired and will be moving out west to Calgary to be closer to their daughters, Kristen and Ali.
Lisa says they are especially proud of the company’s contributions to the various charities over the years, especially the annual Angel Tree for the Espanola Lions and the building of the complex.
She adds the business couldn’t have been the success it has been without the staff and the customers over the years and thanks everyone for their well wishes.
The store is now officially in the hands of the new owner Tanner Lafreniere and has been renamed Tanner’s YIG.
