RiverRock Shoppe at Andress Boat Works

Baking, Breads, Veggies arrive Friday mid-morning! RiverRock Shoppe
We cordially invite you to come in and browse around our RiverRock Shoppe. Just look for the brightly coloured open flags at the dock or by the road. We may be small but there is a large variety of items within these walls. You can find many everyday items, a selection of daily newspapers, the expanded choice of groceries, toiletries, fresh ground and brewed coffee and some kind of fresh baked pastry. Of course there continues to be Ice-cream and milkshakes. We invite you to linger over your refreshment of choice at our new window coffee-bar or outside on the deck or one of the lawns where you will find lawn chairs and benches positioned for an excellent view of the river and all it's activity.

We have great gift ideas for that special gift for someone including canvas tote bags, t-shirts, sweatshirts, candles, jams, lawn flags, kites, hats, sunglasses and much more.

We have unique one of a kind gifts as well, created locally by several local artists. There is amazing talent in our area and we are proud to support local artists in our expanded RiverRock Shoppe. We have paintings, prints, pottery, photographs, honey, jewellery, candles, wood carvings, and much more. Working with one's hands is a talent and gift that Andress's is proud to be offering and supporting.

The wooden boat history wall is a work in progress as we gather the history or Andress boat building. We are very fortunate to have a St. Lawrence River skill on display in the store that was build by Ed Andress's father back in 1903. This is a treasure to view along with pictures of many other Andress built boats. We will expand and evolve this history section over the coming months as things quiet down over the winter but even this early beginning has proven to be a great hit with visitors.

We welcome you to sign our electronic guest book but would also invite you to sign our old fashioned paper guest book in the store when you visit.
